"Mom? Can you come in here to the bathtub?"

"What's up?"

"I hurt my knee today, see?"

"How'd you do that?"

"I don't know but it hurts and so do all four of my mosquito bites. Look 1 - 2 - 3 - 4. And then my elbow is sore? Can you see anything? It's just right around my elbow. And I've still got that weird lump in my neck - you know the liff node because I'm sick? And I'm gonna need a new Chapstick. Look how chapped my lips are. And that cough medicine from the doctor tastes so bad. Are you sure I have to have it? I don't think it works anyway. Remember where I hit my toe the other day? Yeah, that's getting better. So, I guess I'm doing pretty good."
