Me: Bear, I'm going to take you to the hospital first thing in the morning to have your bloodwork done for Dr. Allergist.
Bear (slumping in her chair): I HATE having my blood drawn. It's going to hurt, I'm going to feel nauseous...
Me: I really think you're exaggerating. It's not that bad. And won't it be worth it to find out if you've outgrown the peanut allergy?
Bear (mumbling): I guess.
Me: You'll probably miss part of first period, but I'll go with you to the office to sign you in.
Bear (suddenly sitting up and brightening): Oh! Oh, then that's great! I have a quiz first period tomorrow. Now I don't need to study tonight.
Me (eyes narrowed): On second thought, we'll go on Wednesday morning. Go study.
Bear: *slumps back down in her chair*
