Her: Now why aren't you kids in school? ( Half joking, half probing)
Me: Well, they are in school... we home school. But we have also been at the doctor's office all morning because my daughter has her second strange rash of the week.
Her: (With a very palpable look of fear on her face) Is it contagious?
Uh...yeah...highly! That's why we are standing here in the middle of a heavily trafficked grocery store. Cough, cough, cough, sniffle! No. It isn't.
Her: Well, I guess it's a good thing you keep them at home!
