The Elocution of Sally Petonis


When born, her parents saw nothing but a bright future ahead for their only child, a daughter they named Sally. But try as hard as they could, though an attentive and imaginative little girl now a toddler, she refused to talk.

Then one day, when she was out of her parent’s sight, she found a bobby pin on the floor and proceeded to slip it into an electrical wall outlet. The results were as expected, with a power surge vacating the home and the child shouting in pain.

Sally’s parents spent the next fifteen years trying to shut her up, and were thankful when she went to college.
