The scene: Living room of the Pank. Desmond has been sick for about 5 days. We skipped out on Disneyland and spent our vacation in a hotel room. It was a 3 day weekend, but Des was holding onto a nasty cough and a low grade fever on Monday, so we had decided to keep him home Tuesday.
Me: "Ok, time to get ready for bed. I want you in bed early tonight. You need rest.
Desmond: "I don't think I'm sick anymore. I feel fine! I don't need to go to bed early."
Me: "You must be really excited to go back to school, then."
Me: "If you're not sick, you can go back to school tomorrow."
Des: *cough, cough* "I'm still sick.
