Public Service Announcement: Chicken Pox Outbreak!!!
Warning! A horrible vaccine-resistant strain of Chicken Pox has struck our household. Yours might be next.
All of my seven-year-old daughter's Barbie dolls are afflicted, except the one with leprosy who, having survived the loss of a leg and arm, presumably is immune to all other diseases.

Unwittingly, I had just stumbled upon every six-year-old boy's dream.
