Clowning Around With Thermometers

Ah-hah, a clown in training?

See what I mean? I decided to surprise my friend Katie with my new nose when she came in to take my temperature. After all, the ear thermometer that she's using to see how warm I am inside is awfully silly looking, isn't it? It just sort of tickles my ear while it's figuring out my temperature, and it takes less time to do that than it's taken you to read about it on this page! By the way, my name is Laura, and you can call me Laura the Clown.
