- aMom, I'm ready for school.
- bLet me feel your forehead. I'm so glad it wasn't strep throat.
- aI don't have a fever, and I'm ready for my test.
- bBut I'm not sure you're strong enough yet. Here's some seafood rice soup I made. It's delicious.
- aI'm fine, Mom. I feel so much better. I want to go to school. I'm missing out on all the fun.
- bBut the last two days were a weekend.
- aLet me go to school, please! I'm sick of medicine, sick of soup, and sick of being sick!
