You don't see this much anymore. Instead you see ladies walking four legged babies.
This picture was taken a long time ago, when people used bags for money instead of pocket books. It was taken in mid June.
The baby is called Margaret. She wants to go to the bathroom, but she needs help. First, she has to pick up all the money at the bottom of the bag. Her plan is to hide it, I don't know where.
The mother is playing bingo. A doggy comes along and starts yelling, "the baby needs help!" The dog tips the bag over and the baby crawls out. But at the same time, all the money spills out on to the floor. It's all change.
Here we have a dilemma. You walk up and see a tipped over bag with a baby crawling out and money spilled onto the ground. Which one do you pick up first?
Gunther goes for the money first. It's easier. He would pick up the money first and put it in his pocket. Then he would pick up the baby. That's the most logical solution for him.
Cathy picks up the money first. Then she picks the baby up and ships him off somewhere free.
Joyce picks the baby first. She's not sure why.
Jim went for the baby, because babies cost too.
In our story, Gunther arrives first. Just as he planned, he picked up the money first, put it in his pocket, and then picked up the baby and went to a telephone to call for help.
It looks easy, but when you think of taking on all that trouble of a baby, most of us don't even have baby sitters! If they've never had babies, they might not know what they are taking on. It's day and night!
The logical thing is always to call for help.
Bt this story is getting a little dark. Not dark, but real. Should there be a happy ending or a sad ending? Or should there be a real ending?
Who would you call? You might go to a police station or a church. It's not that easy to take on a baby. People have husbands and the husbands would be jumping up and down saying 'No'!
Gunther ends up calling the police. They take all the particulars and call a qualified organization that will take care of the baby. The dog disappears.
Gunther kept the money. As for Margaret, she looks happy. She might find a family. There are a lot of people who don't have children who need children. She might be happy. The other ones are the four legged ones.
