Overheard at Playgroup

I recently mentioned a trip to the emergency room at 4:30 a.m. for Eli 3.3, who had a urinary tract infection. What I did not mention is that one of the treatments he received was some lidocaine jelly on his unit to relieve pain.

The next day, he went to playgroup. He's known all these kids for most of his life, and one of his best friends is a little girl named Anna (who is almost the same age). They were reclining together on a giant stuffed puppy and Gloria overheard their conversation, which went like this:

Eli: Whoo, I am TIRED. I didn't get enough sleep last night. I had to go to the hospital. My penis hurt.
Anna: Do you want a shot?
Eli: No, I got some jelly.
