A very friendly family paws through the Giant Microbes box in our store.
"What should we get?" She asks her son. Then, to me, she says "It’s our fist time here."
"I think you should get the flu or the common cold." I say.
"But the chicken pox are so cute." She says.
"Yes." I reply,"but you can get the common cold and the flu over and over again. You can only get the chicken pox once."
And she has the nerve to look at me like I’m the strange one. I’m not the one buying viruses for my children.
