Fever


She complained of a fever
knowing he would insist on
taking her temperature
rectally with the special
outsized thermometer he had
just for such an eventuality.

He would find, after a
thorough examination, that she
had no fever and would
need to be punished for lying, the
prospect of which made her
feverish.
