I am not sick

When I was younger and I didn’t want to go to school, I’d tell my dad that I wasn’t feeling well. I think I’m getting sick. I heard there’s a new bug going around at school and I for sure have it. Better keep me home the rest of the week, hack hack sneeze sniff. And my dad would reply, without fail, “Positive mental attitude Allie. Just think “I won’t get sick” and you’ll be fine. You’re still going to school.”
And I, of course, went to school, although to this day my mom swears that we stayed home more often because of my dad than her, but whatever. Positive mental attitude still reigns supreme, and you know what? I think it works.
On that note, I have a cold.
