Because of a scrund, I thought that a classmate of mine was seriously ill.

Did you think she was ill because of something you heard about her? Something she did? Said? Something about how she looked? Somewhere she went?

Did the scrund involve the name of an illness? Symptoms? Treatment?

Did you think she had a specific serious illness? Or just generally that she was seriously ill?

The illness: caused by bacteria? Virus? Parasite? Injury? Organ failure? Allergy? Birth defect? Immune system issue? Aging? Serious=deadly? Is a specific organ relevant? Is the name of the disease relevant?

Was your scrund about the nature of AIDS? Or about something else?

Did you think she looked ill? Looked as if she was having treatment? Did she wear anything relevant?

Was she wearing something to show support for an AIDS-related cause? Or did you think she was? A badge? Wristband? Ribbon? Something red?

Did you think that whatever she was wearing would only be worn by someone with AIDS?

********SPOILER********

One day in 4th grade or so a classmate of mine was wearing one of those red ribbons that are distributed on World AIDS Day.

However, I didn't know that - instead I thought they had to be worn by people who have AIDS as a kind of identifier.
