an abscess and an attitude

What do an abscess and an attitude have in common, you, my funny little friend, might ask?

Both are festering in my sweet little Nonikins.

First, the abscess...
I will spare you the most gruesome, puss-filled, gaping hole details. Suffice it to say that my little sweetems has an abscess the size of a ping-pong ball very near where the sun doesn't shine, or shouldn't shine anyway. Her poor tush has seen more than its fair share of daylight over the weekend, and more than a fair share of people have returned the favor to the tush. Antibiotics, pain reliever, sits-baths, warm compresses, and a great deal of attention were prescribed and I can report that they are working.

Secondly, the attitude...
I promise you I am trying to temper my reaction to the fist clenching, keening of "AAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIII-DAN!!!!", feet stomping, wailing "No one listens to me" like you own the cleaner aisle of Walmart, and the dreaded back talk with the knowledge that there is a gnarly, rankling pathogen wedged betwixt her cheeks.

Really I am trying to be patient.
I can't help but wonder though if they make an antibiotic for attitude?

But that face! That sweet Nonikins face! How can attitude come from that adorable face??

If they do make a prescription for attitude, please let me know so I can buy it in bulk....

Poor girl! I hope she is feeling better soon!

She doesn't have an attitude...she has a personality. Believe me, I know. :)

Tony's grandparents always said "she's got personality plus"... I am pretty sure that means personality plus attitude. Here is what she came home with yesterday:
"Don't make me do a z formation
hip rotation
elbow, elbow, wrist, wrist
Girl you just got dissed"
