An Old Story

Here is a funny story from my journal, February 21st, 2001:

Today we babysat Tracy Trott. She and I went to the college library. We walked in and went to the kid's section. I showed her where to find books and we took off our coats and caps and layed them down. She went and chose a book and I happened to notice the one right next to it was in a different language, but didn't think twice about it. I went to find a few books of my own.

Soon, Tracy came up and asked, "I can't read this. [If you know Tracy, you know she could read by then] Will you read this book to me?"

I said sure and we sat down.

I opened it up.....and it was in GERMAN!

I told her it was in a different language, and I couldn't read it either, but we looked at the pictures and made up our own very nice story....about some Moon Man with an orange head!
