Unless He Tells You That You’re Dying

Leo overheard me and Garrett talking about my upcoming doctor’s appointment.

Leo: “You have a doctor’s appointment, Mom?”

Me: “Yeah- tomorrow.”

Leo: “Do you have an ear infection?”

Me: “No, buddy, I just have to go get checked. It’s good to go once a year to be sure you’re healthy.”

Leo: “Are you dying?”

Me: “Not that I know of…it’s just a check up.”

Leo: “To check to see if you’re dying?”

Me: “Nope- just to make sure everything’s good.”

Leo: “What if he tells you that things aren’t good? That you’re dying?”

Me: “Well, that would suck. Why are you stuck on this ‘dying’ thing?”

Leo: “I’m just wondering if you’re going to pick me up from school or I should ride the bus home.”

Me: “Wow. I’m pretty sure I’ll be there to pick you up.”

Leo: “Good. Do they have lollipops? Will you bring me one if he tells you you’re not dying? And if he tells you that you ARE dying, you need to call the school so I know to ride the bus…and don’t worry about the lollipop”
