What on earth are they teaching her at school?

February 3, 2005

The Drama Queen’s little friend, K, has been out of school with THE FLU (that should be read as the voice of Doom and Gloom, coming from Mt. Strike-Your-Kids-Down-With-Nasty-and-Highly-Contagious-Illnesses). I asked The Drama Queen this afternoon if K was back at school today.

Drama Queen: No. Now she has a stomach bug.
Me: Are you sure? ‘Cause I know she had the stomach flu.
Drama Queen: No. She has a stomach bug now.
Me: Oh, really?
Drama Queen: Yeah. If she doesn’t get better soon, it could turn into cancer or ammonia.
