I yab been een the barx so larng I pee. My Gard, the shame. The meesers go to the bathroom an' make warm water weeth flower-smells. She an' Dianna poot me een where I stan' lighe drowned rad and she wash me. Then she dry. I ron onder bed. I leeck myself por hours. Later I throw orp beeg forball. Thees ees nard geddeen' arf to a good start, says the Mexican.
