I remember when I was a child my mother was always telling me to do something with my body. Here are some examples of her ORDERS:
Janette, the streets are dangerous: Hold my hand
Janette, you have a dentist appointment: Brush your teeth
Janette, your nose is runny: Blow your nose
Janette, say hello to Aunt Molly: Shake her hand
Janette, we are going to church and your hair is a mess: Comb your hair
Janette, Aunt Molly is going home: Wave goodbye to her with your hand, not your tongue
Janette, I know you are tired but please close your mouth: Stop yawning
Holding, Brushing, Blowing, Shaking, Combing, Waving, Yawning. How many verbs are there connected to the body?! Yes, a lot…….
However, as a child I preferred the following: Biting, Screaming, Kicking, Thumping and Scratching. Of course, I had 1 brother and 1 sister to fight with! Please don’t feel sorry for my siblings, my sister tried to kill me by putting a pillow over my face and sitting on me, and my brother locked me in a wardrobe as he thought I would get to Narnia. Yes, feel sympathy for me. I still need to see a therapist once a week.
Fancy hearing how our body parts are pronounced? So, the speaker (the narrator) is a complete ‘nutjob’ and it’s an animated cartoon, but I loved it. Click here
In yesterday’s post I pretended to be a doctor, however as a result of being ‘told off’ by my sister for prescribing such a ridiculous treatment, I’ve decided to follow her advice and ‘hang up’ my doctor’s uniform. So, what are the common symptoms of a cold:
Head – a pain: headache
Nose – too much water: runny nose
Forehead – hot and wet: fever or a temperature
Throat- pain: a sore throat
Mouth- exploding air out of you mouth: a cough
Nose – exploding air out of your nostrils: a sneeze
Nose – can’t breathe: Congested nose or blocked up
