Not Sick

October 3, 2007
By Courtney Turner, Houston, TX

*snifffle*
Am I sick?
No. I’m in perfect health.
*sneeze*
I’m not sick,
It’s just dusty.
*cough*
I’m not unwell,
There’s water in my lungs.
*sniffle*
I’m fine, Mom,
Don’t call the doctor
*SNEEZE*
It’s important I don’t miss school.
One sneeze means nothing.
*cough*
Same as a cough.
I’m not ill.
…if I admit I’m sick, I’ll definitely miss that party Friday.
