    The Middle Wife

    > few years back.
    > When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I

    > them get over shyness

    > Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very
    > outgoing kid, takes her
    > turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a
    > pillow stuffed under her sweater.
    > She holds up a snapshot of an infant.

    > She's standing there with her hands on the
    > pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I

    > The kids are watching her in amazement.
    > 'Then, about
    > two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh,

    > 'She walked around the house
    > for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is

    > Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)
    > 'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in
