The fever

When it’s 8:30 a.m. and your daughter is complaining she’s sick, ask yourself these questions:

1. Is she following you up and down stairs, while saying she’s too tired to move?

2. Did she walk downstairs (while reading) to blow her nose near you, before walking upstairs (while reading)?

3. Is she 24 hours into her first ever read of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban?

If the answer to all of these questions is “yes,” then it’s reading fever, not real fever. You can send her to school.

    I have had that fever. But I didn’t let myself call in sick. On a related note, the latest installment of Captain Underpants is out.
