Blessed Oil

M walked in the door, obviously irritated that they have to be here on the last 2 days of school:
Mr. C: Hey M.
M: I told y’all I didn’t want to be here today.
Mr. C: Yes you did.
M: My Grandmammy said “You’re going to school.” And I said “Not if I’m sick.”
Mr. C: Well you aren’t sick.
M: My Grandmammy doesn’t use medicine, she uses blessed oil. That stuff doesn’t work.
Mr. C: Hmm.

J: Yeah! You sick too?
Mr. C: Yeah.
J: Yeah and its spose ta rain all day.
Mr. C: Yep. It’s one of those days.
J: Yeah, one of those days where you gotta just sit at yo house and recupulate.
Mr. C: (pause) Exactly.
