Under the Weather

Joe was feeling pretty bad last week, so I took him to the doctor on Friday. After the exam and all, the doctor diagnosed him with a virus. Joe got the usual prescription for this kind of thing -- rest and fluids. But he'd also thrown up on the way to the doctor,(NOT in the car, thankfully!)so Dr. Johnson gave us the speech about what foods were okay. Well, yesterday Joe kept asking me about the salt content in different foods. I answered him at first but I soon got curious about why he kept wanting to know. Finally, I realized he was trying to eat like the doctor had told him to -- only he got a little confused. The doctor said to eat starchy foods like Saltines ... and Joe thought he said salty foods!
