A little tale

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved nursery rhymes, fairy tales and all things Walt Disney. She adored her mom and dad, Mr. Rogers and birthday cake.

Every morning while she ate a bowl of steaming Malto-Meal she watched Speed Racer, The Three Stooges and Popeye, and in the afternoons she couldn't wait for Sesame Street and The Electric Co. on Channel 8. Tomato soup with crushed up saltine crackers was her favorite lunch.

She believed in God, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and Big Foot. Her favorite toy was a play medical kit with candy pills, a fake syringe and stethoscope, and she wanted to be a nurse when she grew up.

Nothing turned out the way she planned. But she still likes tomato soup and she still believes in God. And sometimes Big Foot, but don't tell anybody.
