Unlucky Lindy's

Chapter Twenty-Four

Tall Cover No Text_edited.jpg

Shmelia and her pointy bo0bed friend didn't care, but Stanush and Dadush had worried whether Cheese Pilot was a Nazi or not.

Not. They decided, but.

She didn’t want to be taken away from her father or from Carol Ann and Stan. They might put her in a home where a boy could put a baby in her. She wondered about being a boy. They could put babies in a dozen girls a night for weeks and not even know. No matter what they all said, she didn’t think she could get a baby yet. But–what if?

If it came out a ringtail, it was Rocky Racoon's.

If it was hairy all over, it was Spurious George's.

Still, boys weren’t much better than girls. If at all.
