Zack's mom reading him a story

Tina: Didn't it hurt?

Zack: The prick hurt a little bit. While I waited for the nurse to measure the bumps my back itched too. My mom read me stories while I waited. Then I didn't think about my back itching as much.

Zack with the doctor

Tina: Soooo. What are your allergies? Do you have any?

Zack: My mom and I talked with my doctor after the test. I've been sneezing so much because I'm allergic to some trees and ragweed. The doctor gave me some medicine to help my sneezing.
