Swimmer's Ear
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Jim and Lori wanted to swim. It was a hot summer day. They had a pool in their backyard.
2     They went outside with their mom. They jumped in the pool. They went off the diving board.
3     Jim and Lori's friend, Kim, came over. She swam with them for a tiny bit. Then Jim and Lori's mom said it was time to come out.
4     "Why?" Kim asked. "I just got here."
5     "I know," Jim and Lori's mom said. "They can't stay in anymore, though."
6     "Why not?" Kim said. "It is so hot out."
7     "You don't have to go home yet. They have to get out so they don't get swimmer's ear again. I need to put drops in their ears," Jim and Lori's mom said.
8     "What is swimmer's ear?" Kim asked.
9     "It is an infection of the ear," Mom said.
