  • “Bellyaches, earaches, and teeth that need drilling. Putting on dress-up shoes–ugly and killing. Jellyfish, bees, and whatever else stings. These are among my least favorite things.”
  • “This chair is a one-person chair. And I am the person’ who’s there. so remove–now!–your tush Or I’ll give you a push That will makee you fly–whoosh!–through the air.”
