••when I was a kid, I went to camp in Wisconsin..and some nights •we'd have Skits..we'd do little productions for fun and• entertainment...so we came up with the idea to do a skit with Wake Up Little Susie by the Everly Bros playing in the background... on a record• •player...•
so• • we kids did our thing... at the end of the five minute play,• a girl would be sitting in a •chair and the guys would sneak up and pour a bucket of water on her •head..to wake •her up!! WAKE UP L'il Susie!!! hahaha• .
• •• •a few kids at camp that year had the measles, ••
• • so they had to stay in their bunk houses..I think• I had the measles once and the red dots on my skin, the ice cream, the TV monster movies made it •a fun thing..I mean, the measles •aren't painful or anything..• •
so I'm watching the news, KEYT and the media all over the place... and anchors look all panicked while reporting a case of the measles..they get some county doc on set to reassure them..•the doctor is some blonde chick name Charity or something....if I was sick, she could lay her hands on and cure me!•
•• but this over-reaction to the measels is just silly...•what is wrong with these people??
•is it the red splotches? are t•hey afraid their neighbors will make fun of their children and •
embarass the adults??• is it a social thing? •how can their perfect kids have red blotches and dots on their faces?? might it clash with their opalescent glimmering white teeth?? •
so if your kids get the measles,• • let them get the measles...don't stigmatize them..••• take care of them and maybe go out and buy them some ice cream!
geez, it's a rite of passage for a kid •
