Health Scare

, , , , | Learning | June 7, 2019

(I work with three-year-olds in a preschool. One of my kids walks up to me, pouting.)

Student: *as sadly and pathetically as he can muster* “Miss [My Name], I need medicine.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, bud! Why do you think you need medicine?”

Student: “I have the hiccups.”

Me: “Well, there’s not really medicine for hiccups. You have to hold your breath, or drink some water, or… get scared like this! Boo!”

(I grab him and tickle him a little, and he runs away, screaming and laughing. A little later…)

Student: “Miss [My Name]! Scare me again!”

Me: “I can only scare you if you have hiccups! Can you hiccup?”

(The student stared at me, tried to force a hiccup, and burped, instead.)
