Upper Primary students were surprised and a little concerned when Teacher Maxine came into the classroom on Tuesday for she had large brown spots on her arms and face just like Henry Green in their story book. She also said that she felt rather strange. Teacher Puree suggested a visit to Nurse Siripan, and the students agreed to accompany their teacher.
Nurse Siripan examined her patient and said that she thought it was a bad case of Chocolate Fever and asked if Teacher Maxine ate a lot of chocolate. Teacher Maxine confessed she ate Kit Kats, Hershey’s Kisses, Roses Chocolates, Milo Nuggets, Mars Bars, Bounty Bars, and Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. Not a lot really!
Nurse Siripan said that Teacher Maxine should eat only a little chocolate and take a lot of rest. If she felt tired during the day she could have a lie down on the bed in the nurse’s room. The students promised that would help by working hard and by being very good for the rest of the day to aid a speedy recovery.
