Dennis. Ralph. It looks like my son Dennis. He’s happy. He’s between 6-9 months old. They didn’t want to see him walking along loose so they put him in a bag. The doctor’s did. There are plants behind him. He’s at home. Must be you!? Why not?! He’s down south in Tennessee. He has three brothers James, Denny and Donny and one sister named Mary Lou. “The farmer and the dell, hi-ho the dario” is playing in the backyard. It reminds me of … my son … we went to the zoo, he wanted to go see the kangaroo and sit in his pouch. My son lived with a girl named Sheri. He took the girl to California. It’s humid out now and it’s June or August on a Wednesday. His mother Mary also put him in the bag and told him to smile. Then someone tickled him! Someone rang a bell, too. It looks like a doctor’s bag. The doctor’s bag smells like shit! Shit or shinola! It smells like leather, it’s smooth and it will last forever! It looks like a nice roomy bag for a nurse or doctor. Dennis Ralph likes to watch the Little Drummer Boy and Santa Claus movies. He flirts with the nurse. He spins the top, he has no tools to use when he grows up. He’s going to grow up to be a doctor and then he moves the California. When the photo- shoot is over Dennis Ralph is going to have a bottle and have his diapers changed. He can probably learn how to talk right away with a tape recorder: Mama. Papa. Daddy. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! He likes to eat baby food like Gerber’s plumb pudding. He does not like spinach or asparagus. He’s getting his teeth because he is losing them. He’s teething. His family likes him because he is a good sport. He has a cat named Fuzzy Tigger. And his dog’s name is Prince. His Dad built him a playpen out of wood the size of a big room. He puts his toys in there. Dennis Ralph cannot wait to get to his baby blanket and it’s blue.
That’s the million dollar baby, all-right!!
