|Ouch!! It hurts, Mom|
His compassionate teacher not only did not reprimand him, she took him to the office to have some ointment applied for fear of infection. She felt pitiful for him and asked if it hurt.
Mom was so worried that this kind of accident might happen again (God knows how it happened!) that he was bombarded with a lecture on the damage of lead in his body and that he might have a permanent scar on his face if he is not careful.
