Sinus Science

Julianna (eight-years-old) is fighting a summertime cold.

J: Daddy, my head hurts. But, then I stand up, and I’m Ok. Then, I lay down, and my head hurts.

Me: Yes, Honey. You have problems with your sinuses.

J: My Sciences?

Me: No, your “sinuses” are the tubes in your nose that help you breathe.

J: Yes, but the way my body works is science. You said that.

Me: Well, I guess so. But, you just have a cold.

J: Yes, and I have sinuses sciences. (Raising a finger into the air)… I’m a Sinusetist!

Me: Whatever. Go blow your nose. Ew.
