Last night I ended up staying awake until about 2AM. I am tired now, to say the least. I woke up with a sore throat and a rough, stony voice (albeit exaggerated when I would force myself to cough.) I went into mom's room sounding pitiful enough, "Mom?"

Groggily, "Yes?"

"I have a sore throat." Cough pointedly. "Can I stay home?"

She sat up in bed and her voice hardened, "No!" I stood stunned as she continued. "We've already gone over this," we haven't, "and you can't miss anymore school."

Way to be a jerk, mom. Way to be insensitive.
