"Mr. Nikki Sivils" has taken control

Hello, it's me (Dan, aka husband of Nikki). Some of you may recall that I once had to take over this blog when I found Nikki on the floor making paper cupcakes for her first CHA. She was very pale, barely awake and sweating with a fever! I sent her to bed and told everyone to send her back to bed if they caught her online. Together, we saved her. But alas, here I am again because my pretty wife is not feeling well. She always refuses to accept illness and keeps going non-stop until she drops, literally, or I step in and take control. This evening she was sent to bed and, for lack of a better word, she is "grounded" for at least 24 hours. I really had no choice after her behavior in the grocery store. Here's what happened:

While in the check out line a friendly woman asked Nikki, "What kind of thearpy do you do?"

Nikki replied, "I'm sorry, what?" 

Friendly lady repeated, "What kind of therapy do you do?"

Nikki: "What?"

Friendly (and patient) lady, "I said therapy. Do you do therapy?"

Nikki: "I am sorry, you must have me confused with someone else. I don't do    therapy."

Friendly (and confused) lady: "Oh. But you are wearing a name tag ...and shirt... that says Pet Therapy of the Ozarks"

Nikki: "Oh my gosh, that...my name tag, yes it is my name tag! Oh and I am wearing my shirt! I volunteer with Pet Therapy of the Ozarks!"

Friendly lady: "So then, do you train the pet thearpy dogs?"

Wait for it..........

Nikki: "No, I do therapy"

Then nice lady looks at me with a look that implies I better take my wife home. I look at the nice lady with a look indicating that I have been down this road many times before and I have it handled. We both look at Nikki, who is obviously pale and looking very sick. I smile and give her a big hug and say, "We are going home. And you are definitely grounded."

Now, Nikki is asleep and grounded. If you catch her online tell her to go back to bed! I do not have a layout or card to show you, but I do have a wonderful niece, Ellie, who painted me a special picture. I think it's beautiful, I bet you will too. Goodnight, Dan
