“Achoo!” Mack sneezed and sniffled. “I’m OK. Nothin to see here, folks!”
“Mack, you’ve been sneezing and sniffing all day.” Mom said. “Come here and let me take your temperature. Cheese! Go in my bathroom and get me the thermometer from under the sink.”
Cheese ran upstairs to Mom and Dad’s bathroom to look for the thermometer. And like any normal kid… he didn’t see it.
Cheese yelled downstairs, “Mom! I’ve looked everywhere. I can’t find it!”
“I know you brother didn’t look for it, Mack.” Mom mumbled. “It’s by the roll of toilet paper and the first aid kit. In the grey pouch!” she yelled.
Cheese found it right where she said it was, beside the TP and first aid kit.
“Got it!” he said as he walked into the room.
Mom took Mack’s temperature… “Well you’re not running a fever, so I guess it’s not too bad. Let me get you some ginger ale and saltines. Then go lay down on the couch. You’ll be alright.” She comforted.
