A: Billy, you don’t look too well. Maybe you should take the day off school.
B: But Mom! Today we’re playing football! I love football!
A: You’ve god a fever and playing football isn’t a good idea for a boy with a fever. What’s that on your arm?
B: I don’t know. It was there when I woke up this morning.
A: It’s rash. I’d better take you to see the doctor. How did you get that bruise on your leg?
B: I bashed it against the chair in my room.
A: Does it hurt?
B: A little , but not much.
A: Here. Put this wet towel on your face to keep your temperature down. I’ll take you to the doctor’s after breakfast.
B: If I’m better this afternoon, can I go to school?
A: If you are better, but I doubt you will be.
