Now Ellie has chickenpox. When I saw the spots and told her she had it, she made a fist and said "Yes!"
Tom is very annoyed that he has no chance of getting chickenpox and having a week off school. He's already had it, a few summers ago, and he had to miss Cropredy because of it. He likes Cropredy, but he doesn't like school much. He thinks this is unfair.
