…who has chicken pox.
…who was vaccinated against it.
…who got it anyway.
…who itches like crazy.
…who is missing a big party, at school today, that she’s been looking forward to for weeks.
…who is missing a regional academic competition, tomorrow, that she’s been practicing for, for months.
…who was kicked out, via the back stair well of the doctor’s office, like a leper, once she was diagnosed.
…who cried when we got in the car.
…who successfully used those tears to score Chick-fil-A for breakfast.
…who can’t return to school until Tuesday. At the earliest.
…who would tell the chicken pox to suck it, if she were anything like her mother.
