I have been tying to get sick. I don?t wear a sweater when I should, and two days ago I walked in the rain without my boots and my feet got soaked. But so far nothing has happened. Debbie once told me about a girl in her cabin at camp who liked to stay overnight in the infirmary. She used to rub the end of the thermometer until it went up to 102. Then she?d stick it in her mouth and the nurse to would think she was really sick.
This morning I tried doing that but it never went above 94 and I rubbed it for ten whole minutes. So I held the tip of the next to the light bulb in my desk lamp and it went up to 105. I figured I?d put it in my moth and walk downstairs like that. Then my mother would take it out and wouldn?t she be surprised when she saw a high fever I had.The only trouble was I didn?t know the thermometer would be so hot. As soon as I put it into my mouth I burned my tongue. Something awful! I spit the thermometer out. It fell on the floor but it didn?t time trying to get sick. That could be forever.
