this i remember from the 70s....
there was this sitcom about a Mexican family living in the US. the guy was terribly anxious about an upcoming event & he told his wife so.
"i'm having cocoons in my stomach!"
"err...you mean, you have butterflies?"
"no, cocoons....but they will be butterflies this afternoon!!"
i can understand the anxiety my daughter is going thru during the current A-level exams. some days, it even feels like i'm sitting for it!! after all, i've been doing exams after exams from primary school till varsity, & each seemed to be more important than the previous one.
& i still go thru anxiety spells at work. like today.
2-month-old kids are fun to make monkey faces at & tickle koochi-koochi, but i tell, they're no fun to give an anaesthetic to. they are so dainty.... so delicate....the margin for error is slim. one little slip &........
arrghhh....don't want to think about it...
so you can understand why, like my daughter, i've been having cocoons since early this morning.
