Just the Right Medicine

There are a lot of characters at work. It is interesting to get a glimpse into the workings of a variety of families. One such insight came last week. Kurt's son, Andrew, got a cavity filled, and was forced pay $10 to cover part of the bill. We asked if Andrew brushed his teeth. He does, but Jill, Kurt's wife, didn't think he was thorough enough with his brushing habits.

Everyone stared in horror as Kurt told the story of fining Andrew, sweet Andrew, for the filling.

I retaliated with an email titled, "Only the WORST Kind of Person."

Megan: "Only the worst kind of person would require a kid to pay for his own medical care…"

Kurt responds: "What are you saying about Jill???

He carbon copied Jill on the email. will she respond? Kurts laughs and laughs while I turn red. Then he tells me that the address he sent it to wasn't Jills address. Later, he did talk to her about it, and she responded by saying, "I don't think it's that bad."
