mr p and i have both enjoyed strep throat recently, and the squirt had some kind of nostril infection that required antibiotics. so this morning, half way to austin, when the squirm started crying and saying he was sick and his throat hurt, i felt the honorable thing to do was turn the car around and head for home. i would hate to responsible for starting an epidemic at capitol school.
upon our return home, the squirm was miraculously HEALED! while i am, of course, relieved that we are not at this moment forcing pink bubblegum flavored medicine down his sweet little gullet, i admit to being a little peeved to have been played so effectively.
