Chickenpox.

Chickenpox is a very small thing if you’re young. But if you’re a grown-up it can be very dangerous. When Mommy finds out, she starts worrying about Carlo, her son, who still isn’t sick. He’s growing fast, something must soon be done. She needs to find a way to ‘make him’ sick. But does Daddy agree?
