"Mom, Why does it have to be that all the bad things are contagious like germs and the flu?"
"I'm not sure, Honey. But, that's a good question."
"Well, I don't like that bad stuff is contagious. It should be the good things instead of gross yucky things like gross yucky germs and stuff."
"I guess that is what makes them extra gross."
"More good things should be contagious like Smiles and Yawns-those are contagious, you know?- especially yawns. Well, smiles are too. But, especially yawns. It should be more good things like that. Don't you think?"
"That would be very nice."
"Are you yawning, Mom? Me too! and Look!--We are both smiling! See, why can't more good things be contagious?"
Sealed with a Kiss, Kirsten
