Judy Moody, M.D.: The Doctor Is In!

Judy Moody, M.D.: The Doctor Is In! Cover

 

 

Excerpt

PLIP! Judy Moody woke up. Drip, drip, drip went rain on the roof. Blip, blip, blip went drops on the window. Not again! It had been raining for seven days straight.

Bor-ing!

She, Judy Moody, was sick and tired of rain.

Judy put her head under the pillow. If only she was sick. Being sick was the greatest. You got to stay home and drink pop for breakfast and eat toast cut in special strips and watch TV in your room. You got to read Cherry Ames, Student Nurse, mysteries all day. And you got to eat yummy cherry cough drops. Hey! Maybe Cherry Ames was named after a cough drop!

Judy took out her moms old Cherry Ames book and popped a cough drop in her mouth anyway.

"Get up, Lazybones!" said Stink, knocking on her door.

"Cant," said Judy. "Too much rain."

"What?"

"Never mind. Just go to school without me."

"Mom, Judys skipping school!" Stink yelled.

Mom came into Judys room. "Judy, honey. Whats wrong?"

"Im sick. Of rain," she whispered to Mouse.

"Sick? Whats wrong? What hurts?" asked Mom.

"My head, for one thing. From all that noisy rain."

"You have a headache?"

"Yes. And a sore throat. And a fever. And a stiff neck."

"Thats from sleeping with the dictionary under your pillow," said Stink. "To ace your spelling test."

"Is not."

"Is too!"

"See, look. My tongues all red." Judy stuck out her Cherry-Ames-cough-drop tongue at Stink.

Mom felt Judys head. "You dont seem to have a fever."

"Faker," said Stink.

"Come back in five minutes," said Judy. "Ill have a fever by then."

"Faker, faker, faker," said Stink.

If only she had measles. Or chicken pox. Or . . . MUMPS! Mumps gave you a headache. Mumps gave you a stiff neck and a sore throat. Mumps made your cheeks stick out like Humpty Dumpty. Judy pushed the cough drop into her cheek and made it stick out, Humpty-Dumpty style.

"Mumps!" said Dr. Judy. "I think I have the mumps! For real!"

"Mumps!" said Stink. "No way. You got a shot for that. A no-mumps shot. We both did. Didnt we, Mom?"

"Yes," said Mom. "Stinks right."

"Maybe one mump got through."

"Sounds like somebody doesnt want to go to school today," said Mom.

"Can I? Can I stay home, Mom? I promise Ill be sick. All day."

"Lets take your temperature," said Mom. She took the thermometer out of the case.

"Cat hair?" said Mom. "Is this cat hair on the thermometer?"

"Shes always making Mouse stick out her tongue and taking the cats temperature," said Stink.

Mom shook her head and went to wash off the thermometer. When she came back, she took Judys temperature. "Its 98.6," said Mom. "Normal!"

"Faker, fakey, not-sick, big fat faker," said Stink.

"At least my temperatures normal," said Judy. "Even if my brother isnt."

"Better get dressed," said Mom. "Dont want to be late."

"Stink? Youre a rat fink. Stink Rat-Fink Moody. Thats what Ill call you from now on."

"Well, youll have to call me it at school cause you dont get to stay home."

Judy stuck out her cherry-red, no-mumps tongue at Stink.

She was down in the dumps. She had a bad case of the grumps. The no-mumps Moody Monday blues. She, Judy Moody, felt like Mumpty Dumpty! Mumpty Dumpty without a temperature, that is.
