Diagnosis: Clever

Ingrid: Mama, I'm cold.

Me: Hmm, maybe you should put on a sweatshirt.

Ingrid: No, No.

Me: (Thinking. Here we go again with the cold catch-22.)

Ingrid: My mouth is cold.

Me: Your mouth? (mining my memory for diseases that might have this symptom)

Ingrid: On the inside.

Me: On the inside? (Could she be having a stroke?)

Ingrid: Like I need some hot chocolate.
