The baby girl was a cute as a can be.
People would stop her mother on the street and admire the beautiful child.
Once the pretty baby graduated from baby carriage to the stroller- more fans winked and smiled and lavished praise on the pretty girl. The baby beamed, smiled and cooed. She was alert, engaging and a magnet for attention.
Two years went by and the baby grew prettier – however, she failed to speak. She was examined, tested, analyzed and the consensus was she wouel speak when she wanted to.
On Halloween, she tripped and fell on the stairs and howled. She said, “Thorny!” The family was so taken by her first word, they failed to grasp her meaning.
She howled louder, pulled up her Cinderella Costume and pointed to her knee and lisped: “Sore Knee!”
