She said, "I feel so awful I'm gonna TAKE TO MY BED."
Did you ever get up in the morning and decide you'd rather stay home from school and watch TV, play outside, or read a book? That's when you decided to put on the "I'm sicker'n a dog and can't go to school today" act.
I never tried that tactic -- except maybe a time or two when I wasn't ready for a big project or a test and needed extra time.

"If you're too sick for school, you're too sick for TV. TAKE TO YOUR BED."
Now that I'm older, a lot older, I have days when I wish I could TAKE TO MY BED and forget about all the things I need to do. I know I have to really be sick to give in and TAKE TO MY BED, though.

There are other reasons, too. Not MY reasons. But maybe one of yours. On those days, you might not make it far enough to TAKE TO YOUR BED. You may TAKE TO THE SOFA. Or TAKE TO THE FLOOR.
Was TAKE TO YOUR BED used in your family? Do you still TAKE TO THE BED at certain times?
Tell me about it. I'd love to hear your stories.
