A scene from the car –
Casey: [Screaming and crying] My eye, Mommy! I just poked myself in the eye!
Me: Okay, it will feel better in a minute.
Jack: Maybe she’s getting the red eye. [Also known as pink eye.]
Me: No, if she just poked herself then she’s not getting the red eye.
Casey: [still crying]
Me: Is it feeling better Casey?
Casey: No. Am I getting sick?
Me: No. You just said that you poked yourself.
Casey: No, I didn’t.
Me: You told me you poked your eye. If you didn’t poke it, what happened to it?
Casey: I don’t know. I didn’t poke it.
Casey: Oh Jack, did you just see that Mighty Machine over there?
Thus concludes the eye poking drama.
