On vaccinations.

[We are at the doctor.]

What shots am I getting today?

[The doctor looks at her a little strangely.] Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis in one shot, and then you need a Varicella booster – which is Chicken Pox.

Oh good! Mummy got Chicken Pox last spring. [Gives me a knowing glance, turns back to the doctor] You know, from the kids who didn’t get vaccinated at my Montessori.

[A pause]

Can you believe there were SIX families who didn’t vaccinate? SIX! It’s a good thing I’m getting a booster today – it will protect the old people who are sick and the babies who are small.

Oh, and Mummy. Apparently she gets chicken pox over and over.
