*At the Twist ?N Style Petal Parlor...*
"What?ll the ?do be today?" asked Daffidazy.
"The usual, please, Daffy," replied Pinkie Pie before she and the others head over to the salon stations.
"Right away, Pinkie. So, anyone have any news?" replied Daffidazy.
"It?s been pretty ordinary this time around, remarked Pinkie Pie.
"Yeah. I kinda wish something would happen, well besides us getting new hairdos," agreed Minty.
"Just the same old same old," added Twinkle Twirl as everyone?s hair was being done.
"Yup, pretty boring," echoed Thistle Whistle.
"All done. How do you all like them?" continued Daffidazy.
"You always know how to do the best do," giggled Minty.
"It?s what I do best," smiled Daffidazy.
"See you later, Daffy," called Minty as the group headed out. *That night...*
"Huh. I feel kinda funny. I felt fine earlier today when we all got our hair done. Maybe I?m just tired? I?ll just go to bed early then," pondered Pinkie Pie before heading to bed. *The next morning....*
"Morning, Pinkie," said Sparkleworks.
"Morning, Sparkleworks. Up for a day at the cafe?" asked Pinkie Pie.
"Definitely. I want to try their new Mint Rainbow Delight," agreed Sparkleworks.
"Which way is the cafe?" asked Pinkie Pie.
"You know where it is, Pinkie. It?s this way," protested Minty.
"Which way? I can?t seem to make anything out," questioned Pinkie Pie.
"Pinkie, is something wrong?" asked Twinkle Twirl.
"When I said I wanted something to happen, I didn?t mean this," admitted Minty.
"I think I came down with something. I can?t read a thing," explained Pinkie Pie.
"How did that happen?" asked Minty.
"All I know is I can?t read anything," repeated Pinkie Pie.
"We?ll get the doctor. Stay right there," said Skywishes. *An hour later...*
"Here she is, doctor," noted Twinkle Twirl.
"So you can?t read at all. Have you always been this way?" questioned the doctor.
"No. I was fine yesterday," replied Pinkie Pie.
"It must be the Illiteracy Flu. It?s a flu where you can?t read for 24 hours. Take this medicine tonight. It?ll take time to work its magic but as long as you do not try to read anything, you should be fine tomorrow," explained the doctor.
"The Illiteracy Flu? Oh dear. That?s no good at all. We should get her to bed then," remarked Minty.
"A good idea. She needs to get rest to have the best chance of recovery," agreed the doctor. *At Pinkie Pie?s house....*
"Get well soon, Pinkie," said Desert Rose before she and the others leave. *The next morning...*
"Well here goes nothing. Let me find a book. The Great Rainbow Race. I can read again," said Pinkie Pie. *She heads off excitedly.*
"She must be back to normal," concluded Minty.
"It?s true, Minty. I am back to normal," echoed Pinkie Pie excitedly.
