Me – My tonsils are really swollen today.
Mum – “Oh my God! What does that mean? Have you got tonsillitis? Or glandular fever? Is it swine flu?!?
Me – No, no, I’m fine, just a bit under the weather, don’t worry.
Mum – BUT THAT ISN’T NORMAL!
Me – Yes it is, it happens now and then. I’ll be ok.
Mum – But MY tonsils don’t do that!
Me – … I thought you had yours out when you were little?
Mum – … oh yes.
