Hal's Pity Party

Posted: Updated:

When I was a kid if I got sick my mom would get me a coloring book. All moms do that right? They try to make their kids feel better by distracting them. For me, crayons and a coloring book were always the perfect distraction.

Now, for me, it's social media. I can cough, sneeze, sniffle, be downright miserable feeling and social media is the perfect distraction. Why? Why not? If you ever go to my personal Facebook page (feel free to go to facebook.com/haleisner and follow me) you'll see I like sharing everything from news to personal stories. Being sick is on the personal side right? The perfect way to have a "pity party!" Put up a smiley face sneezing and a pic of a bowl of chicken soup and - voila! - people share their remedies, tell you if they're home sick and wish you well.

Well, today I'm home coughing, sneezing, sniffling and generally feeling pretty lousy. I'm a terrible one for being sick. But, thanks to social media I'm having a "pity party" with lots of people on Facebook and it's putting a smile on my sneezy-sniffly face! I'm gonna have to tell mom about this. Oh wait, guess I just did!
