1. I watch Strawberry Shortcake Get Well Adventure whenever I'm home sick from school or work. I've done this since I was little and use to get strep throat a lot. I related because the character who gets injured had to postpone going on a fun trip (which to me equated to school) and learn to be grateful to those caring for her before she recovered and could continue her plans.
