Comments about Ali Marshall
We’re both terribly sorry.
I’m sorry I couldn’t be the daughter you always wanted.
To play dolls with.
To have tea parties with.
To dress up in beautiful dresses.
Put bows in my hair.
He’s sorry he couldn’t be the son you always wanted.
To play catch with.
To go fishing with.
To go camping in the wilderness with.
To cheer on at his baseball games.
We’re sorry for being ourselves.
Me the tomboy.
Him so much trouble.
You always seem angry because of it.
You pounce on us if we forget to do something.
