Silly Questions

When did your finger start hurting? (To a 10 year old complaining of finger pain.)
“When I punched the wall.”  

When did you start feeling sick? (To a 9 year old with a sore throat and cough.)
“After my sister coughed in my face.”

When did your head start hurting? 
“When my teacher started talking about similes and metaphors”. (Ahh, 4th grade.)

And from a (very precocious) 4-year-old patient of mine: 
When did your throat start hurting? 
“I don’t know.” 
Well, was it yesterday maybe? 
“Don’t be ridiculous. It was *way* before yesterday.”
