My little daughter is not too well at the moment and is off sick. She does not like the meds, but has suddenly realised that the pain meds do work, so it has become a little easier. She does wish though, that they would make the antibiotics taste like custard.
But, my eldest reminded me of a certain time, many moons ago, when she was sick. I remember the time she was referring to well. Anyway, only recently did I hear more to what I knew about her being sick at that time.
She told me that she didn’t want to go to school that day, so she put the electric blanket on an lay on it until she was boiling hot. Next thing to do on her mission was to develop some tears which she was able to do quite well. So she came to me that morning telling me that she was not feeling well, all teary eyed and very warm. I then, as she had foreseen, felt her head and thought that she was really burning up. I then took the eldest to the doctor, the doctor examined her and found that she was really and truly ill with a chest infection! Eldest said she nearly fell off her chair because she expected the doc to say he could find nothing wrong with her since she had orchestrated the whole thing
I just wonder how many times she used the electric blanket trick on me though… Its easy to laugh about these things years later but at the moment of it happening, it isn’t that funny
Anyway, eldest and I had a good old chuckle about it. Did you ever pretend to be sick to get out of going to school?
