the odds

As I walked into my son's classroom today to volunteer, there were about eight other women there, all wearing official badges. They all left as I was taking off my coat, and I heard someone say "head check".

Did you know that one in ten children get head lice?

I wonder what the odds are for children to get head lice on the very day that their grandparents arrive from out of town?

Of course, there is no word yet, but I'm dusting off my panic button, just in case.
