Weirdo Parents Mail Chicken Pox Infected Lollipops To Other Parents

I've heard of chicken pox parties before. And I think that they're insane. What's a chicken pox party, you may ask? Well, basically it's parents getting some kids who have the chicken pox together with a group of kids who don't have the chicken pox so that the healthy kids can get infected.

I think that I got the chicken pox at the same time that my older brother got them. Why? Because we lived in the same house. How did he get them? From some kid at preschool who came to school with them before they had really showed up. That's the way that chicken pox should be spread. Not by crazy parents.
