I’ve Got Fever!

(Gideon, Age 5, is fake coughing and sneezing)

ME: Gideon, what are you doing?

GIDEON: I’m sick.

ME: Why do you say you’re sick?

GIDEON: I just took my temperature, and it says I’m sick. See?

ME: (Looking at digital thermometer) This says 98.6. That’s normal.

GIDEON: No, it says 98.6 “F”

ME: Yea. So?

GIDEON: The F stands for FEVER. . . . I have a 98.6 FEVER (*COUGH* *COUGH* *ACHOO* *ACHOO*)
