"Retarded Grandparents"
{As reported by a teacher.}

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils
how they spent their holiday away from school. One
child wrote the following: We always used to spend
the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa.

They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa
got retarded and they moved to Arizona. Now they
live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look
like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and
wear nametags because they don't know who they
are anymore.

They go to a building called a wrecked center, but
they must have got it fixed because it is okay now,
and do exercises there, but they don't do them very
well. There is a swimming pool too, but in it they all
jump up and down with hats on.

At their gate there is a dollhouse with a little old man
sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape!
Sometimes they sneak out. They go cruising in their
golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And,
they eat the same thing every night: "Early Birds". Some
of the people can't get out past the man in the dollhouse.

The ones who do get out, bring food back to the
wrecked center and call it pot luck. My Grandma says
that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment
and says I should work hard (and smart) so I can be
retarded someday too.

When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the
dollhouse. Then I will let people out so they can visit
their grandchildren!
