Me: Hello! How was your day today?
Kindergartner: It was okay. My friend Mikey wasn't at school today. He lives next door to me.
Me: He wasn't? Is he sick?
Kindergartner: Yeah. He has the flee.
Me: I'm sorry what? He has what? (Bending down to hear him better)
Kindergartner: The flee. He gots the flee.
Me: You mean the flu?
Kindergartner: Flu? Um, no....not the flu. He has the flee.
Me: Oh, ok. Well you tell Mikey that I hope he feels better soon!
I wish you could have seen this child's face when I said flu. He looked at me like I was a total idiot for not knowing that it is the flee not the flu (duh). Here's hoping the week is heading in this direction!
