White Coats

Simon is in the hospital. He is a miserable, miserable little man, following surgery to remove his appendix. Both children received doctor kits before the surgery. Now in recovery…

Simon whispers to his sister, “I need you help!”

Samantha responds quickly, “Okay. I’ll help you. I’ve got my doctor kit right here.”

Daddy steps in, “You might want to see what it is he needs your help with first.”

Samantha heaves a sigh. “Fine. Simon, what do you need help with? Because Samantha Doctor is all you get.”

Simon promptly narrows his eyes, and stonewalls Samantha Doctor just as effectively as he has stonewalled every doctor thus far. I have a feeling this one won’t quite be over any time soon.
