Hello future readers,
This past Tuesday and Wednesday, our friend Cheryl was at home with a bad cold. She had a sore throat, headache and sniffles. What a drag! I knew Cheryl was bummed out, because she can never sit still for very long. She always has to be doing something, like running around, jumping rope, playing hopscotch..anything where she's up and moving around! So on Wednesday after school, Sunny and I went to her house to cheer her up. But first we stopped at the candy store, to get her some surprises. When we went up to her room, we found her sitting up in bed, trying to eat some vegetable soup and drink some orange juice.
She looked happy to see us as we came in. She could barely whisper "Hi you guys". Poor Cheryl!
We sat down and got out out surprises. Sunny bought her a bag of her favorite sour balls to suck on to help her throat feel better.
And I brought her a "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" comic book, so she wouldn't feel so bored staying in bed.
"Would you like me to read some of it to you?", I asked. She nodded her head yes. So Sunny and Cheryl had a few sour balls, as I read about Sabrina's Cousin Ambrose who try to make his new car work with witches brew instead of gas and it made the car fly!
Cheryl's dog Butterscotch liked hearing the story, too!
This kinda reminded me of the time Cheryl first moved to Springfield, after we met in summer camp, and we had "Red Robin's Day".
Pretty soon, Cheryl's mom came upstairs to take Cheryl's tray away. She told us Cheryl needed some rest, and it was time for us to go home now. Cheryl snuggled down in the covers as we said good-bye.
On Thursday, Cheryl was back in school, feeling better than ever! I'm glad she's feeling better. It's one thing when there's no school and you're at home having fun. It's another story when you're sick, you can't enjoy staying home, and it feels like the whole world is having fun without you! That's why I'm glad Sunny and I went to see her. I bet if people get sick in the future, there's some kind of super vitamin pill you can take to get you better in seconds! But Cheryl had to do it the hard way! Being sick is no fun at all!
Until next time, future readers,
