School nursing brings you an amazing collection of hypochondriacs, and it gets worse with winter break coming and they get restless. So today, besides the usual collection of snotty noses, stomach aches, and "I can't do PE because..." I had this.
Kid #1: "Somethings wrong with my eyes. I can't read the board today."
Me: "Don't you wear glasses?"
Kid#1: "Yeah, but I left them at home."
Kid #2: "I've had this bump on my little finger since I was five, and it looks the same."
Me: "You're ten now. So why are you here?"
Kid#2: "I wanna know what it is."
I also want to thank the 2 teachers (neither of whom was a sub) who sent these kids to my office during regular class time for these complaints.
