Last night my niece was talking about the Coronavirus. She is intelligent and interested enough to keep up with whatever we talk about. Meaning whatever she and I talk about.
We were talking about politics and how China was now imposing a lock down on travel. My sister sat down and caught the end of the conversation.
my sister made a disgruntled sound. “For the last time, K! Crohn’s is not a virus! It is a disease! It is very serious!”
My niece looked at me, and I tried not to laugh. “It’s Corona! Not crohn’s, Mother!” She explained slowly.
Now my sister’s eyeballs were bulging out of her head! “It’s Crohn’s!” She shout back.
I facepalmed myself. “It’s Corona,” I pronounced slowly. “Virus. It is the epidemic that is spreading in China.”
My sister sighed. “If you say so”
I shook my head, “I do say so” I smiled at K.
“Maybe you should start being a little more smarter, mom” k snapped in disgust.
I howled in laughter at the burn. My niece continues to be a wonderful girl but she has one hell of an attitude!
