Billy Smith went back to his old neighborhood for a visit. He saw his old buddy, Tommy Jones, coming out of school. “How are you Tommy?” Billy asked.
“Not well at all,” Tommy answered. “I just had pneumonia, rheumatism, tonsillitis, and appendicitis.”
Billy was shocked. “That sounds like it could be fatal.”
Tommy nodded. “Yeah, if I failed that spelling test, my father will kill me.”
