Not Fun

We were waiting for Tornado A to receive his vaccines.  I noticed a picture of a person with chicken pox.  I looked down at Tornado S and pointed to the picture.

Me: That’s chicken pox.  They are not fun.  I had them when I was year older than you.  All those spots are like ant bites, and they itch for days.  Totally not fun.

Tornado S: Chicken pox is not fun!

Me: Not at all.

Tornado S: I don’t want the chicken pox!  They are not fun!

Me: The good news is that you got a shot, and you will never get the chicken pox.

Tornado S: Chicken pox is not fun!  Shots are not fun!

Me: Chicken pox and shots are not fun.  But chicken pox is not fun for seven days!  Shots are not fun for a few minutes.  Then it’s over.

Pause.

Tornado S: Chicken pox is not fun!  Shots are fun!  Because you get ice cream after them!

    Sean’s “ice cream” reasoning reminds me of Fortune Cookies. Everything gets an “in bed” at the end. I admire the logic. I want ice cream in bed. My ending is “with sprinkles”.
