I’d like to meet this new gentleman suitor.

I cannot go to school today"
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
“I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.

My mouth is wet, my throat is dry.
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox.

And there’s one more - that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue,
It might be the instamatic flu.

I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I’m sure that my left leg is broke.
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button’s caving in.

My back is wrenched, my ankle’s sprained,
My ‘pendix pains each time it rains.
My toes are cold, my toes are numb,

I have a sliver in my thumb.

My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,

I think my hair is falling out.

My elbow’s bent, my spine ain’t straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,

There’s a hole inside my ear.

I have a hangnail, and my heart is …
What? What’s that? What’s that you say?
You say today is ………….. Saturday?

G'bye, I’m going out to play!”

When I was a small child, I was a jungle gym gymnastics pro. I was queen. I was doing my thing and hanging upside down and doing flips and shit when this little bastard of a kid came and lifted my shirt up. I flipped back upways and went after him. I tackled him and spit in his face and told him no one would ever talk to him again and that he’d get pox. My mom had been watching some period piece with small pox.

Anyways, a week later, he got chicken pox and no one would talk to him after because he’d scratched so much they’d scarred.

Inadvertently cursing since the early ‘90’s.
