Bart: Daddy, were you actually sick on Wednesday?
Jay: Yes I was.
Bart: Why does it hurt your throat when you are sick?
Jay: I think it is the stomach acids coming back up. They shouldn’t be in your throat and so they hurt when they are.
Bart: It’s like a cup of tea in the fire.
Jay: Ummmm…. okay…. what?
Bart: Stomach acid in your throat is like a cup of tea in the fire. It shouldnt be there.
