I have this friend. She gets really worried that she or her kids could get sick. She homeschools largely because she doesn't want her kids to catch germs from other people.
Anyway, here's my story. My older daughter had the H1N1 virus, as did half the kids in her school, a few weeks ago. Around the same time, my baby got sick. They've been better for a while.
We planned to get together this Saturday and go to a children's museum in a nearby city. We planned it ages ago. She called worried that maybe we should cancel it because my kids have been sick. I said, "Huh? My kids haven't been sick." I was confused what she was talking about. And she said she was talking about the H1N1 virus, and I said that was AGES ago. I said that my kids are less likely to have the H1N1 virus at this point than her kids, because mine have had it and gotten over it. But she seemed unsure. Maybe my kids were still contagious, two weeks after recovery?
This happened once before. My daughter was sick, and she got better, and then the friend canceled something we were going to do in case my daughter was still sick. WHICH SHE WASN'T !!! So we went on our own, because I didn't think my daughter should have to have her plans ruined over this, and saw them there. My friend was offended that I would bring my daughter out (Chuck E. Cheese that time - germ heaven) after she'd canceled with me. It's like my daughter has to stay in the house within like 3 months of any illness. And as if she's the authority as to whether we leave the house or go to Chuck E. Cheese.
ARGH. So now if we go out, and if her kids get sick, she will assume they caught it from my kids. This is so annoying I'm thinking of canceling going to the museum because she's just going to annoy me.
I am not sure of her type. I'm wondering if this would indicate anything. It probably only means she's stupid.
