Sick kids. Again. Still.
Belladonna was throwing up last night. I called her in to the school office. Mrs McC answered the phone.
Me: "Belladonna won't be in today."
Mrs McC: "What is wrong with her?"
Me: "She is meaner than hell."
Mrs McC: "I know that. But why is she not coming to school today?"
Me: "Oh, she is sick."
Mrs McC: "Thanks. Bye."
Today's hot tip is to choose a Dental Hygienist who does not speak with her hands. Especially, don't choose a Dental Hygienist who has a child who will be receiving boxing gloves for Christmas. Just sayin'.
