On the way home from school yesterday, Sally shared this with me: "So I had to go to the nurse today to get some ice, because I've got anchors."
Me: (trying to be calm) "You've got what?"
Sally: "Anchors. In my mouth. They are all bleeding, too."
Me: "Do you mean cankers, like canker sores?"
Sally: "Oh yes, CANKERS. I've got cankers all over my mouth."
Me: (seeing an opportunity) "You know, Sally, I know how to avoid getting canker sores."
Sally: "Really? How?"
Me: "You need to eat less sugar and drink more water."
Sally: "Oh brother!"
