Growing Up Fast
(Blocked picture - This one of two rabbit heads poking out of a blanket - I don't have a backup of this)
One day, Social
suddenly realized her baby Floursack had grown up to be a mature adult. More or
less. In the morning, she found another bunny head facing her.
"You look strange,"
she said. "Of course, you were always a weird little girl. I still can't believe
you grew out of a flour sack. And where'd you find that sleazy outfit?" "I went
shopping," she said. "You should go out sometime. They got a great place down

Floursack's school friends dropped in. Actually, they were more like
acquaintances, because they just didn't understand a child that behaved like a
sack of flour. They didn't stay lon, so she just sat and talked with her mother
"Don't worry about
it, honey bunny. I was a social outcast myself, but now look at me!" "You're
still a social outcast, and you raised a sack of flour. You're not helping."
Social just sighed.
