Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
I Understand. I Will Give You A Call Later
You can not be serious?
You can not be?
'Not only am I serious...
I had been speechless,
She said 'what' to your next door neighbors?
These are 'her' parents...
She stated to them she was pregnant.
And wanted to have a better life,
For her and her child.
A life better than she was given.
So she decided to keep the baby,
And move in with her parents.
WITH her jobless boyfriend.'
'I had the same reaction!
When I first heard about this...
My mouth opened and wouldn't close either.'
I will give you a call later! '
