DEBBIE THE DOLL by P.S. Joshi

After losing her head, she realized that the rest of her body was falling apart. It was a good thing she snapped together like pop pearls.

The baby pulled Debbie apart about twice a week. It was always the same. Meg, three, would forget her on the floor. Gloria, ten months, would find her.

“Dolly,” Gloria would shout.

First, off would come Debbie’s head (pop), then her arms (pop-pop) then her legs (pop-pop). It was always the same. Gloria would then crawl away from the scene of the naughty act.

Meg would come back and start shouting, “Mom-e-e-e!”

Mommy would come and on would go Debbie’s head (pop), then her arms (pop-pop), then her legs (pop-pop).

Mommy would tell Meg, “Don’t leave Debbie on the floor.”

Meg, tears running down her cheeks and dripping off her chin, would say, “Yes, Mommy.”

One day Mommy left a lovely set of wooden beads on a side table. Gloria found them.

“Ooh,” she said. She pulled extra hard.

4 Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.

5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
