pink eye

The latest ailment in our house is pink eye. Yesterday Tess woke up with an oozy pink eye that was swollen up like she had been stung by a bee.
On the way home from school that day, Owen had some quesitons about her condition.

O: "Tessie gots pink in her eye?"
Mom: "yes, Tess has pink eye. So be careful not to touch it."
O: "Why not?"
Mom: " Because it is itchy"
O: "I don't want pink eye, I want blue eye."

I laughed.......but if there is such a thing as blue eye, O is bound to catch it!
