6-year-old Lily noticed some of her classmates were absent due to chicken pox, so the crafty girl decided to try her luck.
Using a permanent red marker to finish her ‘homework’, she drew multiple dots all over her body. Smart and funny, isn’t she?
She then ran downstairs to complain of itchy rashes. When her mom, Charlotte Schooley, and dad, David, turned the lights on, they struggled to hold back their laughs.
“The house is always full of laughter with Lily. She is very witty. She had a spelling test the next day that she didn’t want to do. A few of the children in school had come down with chicken pox and she’s had it before so she knew she stayed off school for a while,” Charlotte said.
“She came down and said, ‘I just need a red pen Mummy, I need to do my homework’. Then she came down 10 minutes later and she was stroking her arm. She said, ‘oh mummy, I’m feeling a bit itchy. I’ve think I’ve got a rash’.
“We turned the light on and she was absolutely covered in it. Me and my husband were aching with laughter, trying not to let on that we knew. I asked what the matter was and she said, ‘I think I’ve got chicken pox, I can’t go to school’. She’d been sat on the bathroom floor drawing dots on herself.”
Lily’s parents then suggested she’d have to go to hospital. She then rushed to the bathroom to remove the marks off but they couldn’t get them off.
“She was deadly serious about it until we said, ‘oh gosh, it’s come on so quickly in 10 minutes. We’re going to have to see the doctor’. She quickly disappeared and we went upstairs to find her trying to rub them off with a flannel.
“She said, ‘I can’t go to school Mummy because everyone will laugh’. We had to send her in with a letter the next day to say they weren’t contagious or real and we just couldn’t get them off.
“We used body wash, soap, hot water, baby oil, alcohol wipes. I think it was hairspray in the end that got it off – after four days. Everyone was looking at her like she was contagious. We had to tell everyone she wasn’t.
“She had PE that day as well and had to wear shorts and t-shirts. The teachers thought it was hilarious. Luckily this happened on a Thursday night so she only had one day [in school with the spots].”
