About 6 days ago, my children excitedly came down the stairs claiming they had "found the flu bug". Curtis exclaimed, "Ya, it's in our room!"
I skeptically say, oh really? What does it look like?
They begin describing it. It's kind of red. And it has spots. Ya, it has spots.
How many spots?
We couldn't count, but there were black spots. It was little.
Sounds like you are describing a lady bug, to me.
No, it was the FLU BUG!
This had become a little joke around the house and amongst various family members, until 2 days ago....
