Re: [IP] Our First Sick Day

My 16 yr olds says the same thing.  Just before our 6 month trial period is
over I'm going to ask him if he would like to return it.  I know what his
reply will be, "No".  But for the time being he still says that it wouldn't
bother him to go back to injections.  Oh well!!
