Female Offspring #8 came home from school and told me they are having a "walk a thon for malaria". She wanted me to sponsor her.
That one had me a tad stumped. I mean, I can't remember the last case of malaria we had in the trailer court. Schure we did have a few outbreaks of leprosy in '07, but malaria? Huh uh.
I said, "When you get to school tomorrow, tell your teacher that your mother wants to know if this is a walk a thon for MORE malaria or LESS malaria?"
