The loveliest rash

Alice is in the bathtub. Her shoulders, neck, and tummy are covered in itchy pink spots.

Alice: Are they chicken pox?

Me: We don't think so.  [ed. They're not.]

Alice: They're so itchy!

Me: I know.

Alice: I want to scratch them!

Me: I know.

Alice: I don't like them!

Me: I know.

She pauses to gaze at one on her tummy which looks particularly pink and irritated.

Alice: ...but they are a very pretty colour.
