Virus in School...

It was April 1st. The older kids had arrived home from school, and we were all sitting around the table. My mother was visiting, helping me out with the kids. Marissa starts up a conversation.

"I think I'm getting that disease Dad was talking about. I didn't feel too good today. I think it must be going around school."

I looked at her.


"Or...bug? That thing he was talking about that was supposed to go around today?"

My mom looks confused, but then you see her beginning to understand. She is much better at hiding her amusement than I am...although I can see it in her eyes.

"Virus, maybe?"

Marissa looks at her grandma.

"Yeah, that's it!"

"I think he meant computer virus..."

"Oh....well...same thing..."

Jay rolls his eyes.

"No, Marissa. It is not the same thing at ALL."

My mother, the peacemaker, interjects.

"Well...computers can get very sick,, it's sort of the same..."

You a does make sense, though. I was beginning to think there was something wrong lately. Perhaps there's a way to reboot her...or install an update....

And to think, I was blaming hormones all this time...
