A teacher asks her class to use the word “contagious”.
Roland the class swot gets up and says, “Last year I got the measles and my mum said it was contagious.”
“Well done, Roland,” says the teacher. “Can anyone else try?”
Katie, a sweet little girl with pigtails, says, “My grandma says there’s a bug going round, and it’s contagious.”
“Well done, Katie,” says the teacher. “Anyone else?”
Little Irish Patrick jumps up and says in a broad accent, “Our next door neighbour is painting his house with a 2 inch brush, and my dad says it will take the contagious.”
