A Very Early Memory .

My earliest memory was the Mid-Wife
 And her strong , safe forceful grip .
 And Dad's big frown
 In his surgical gown
 Saying "don't let my baby slip .
 Lord ! , he's pink and bald and ugly
 Hey Mom ! , here's your nine month dream
 He's the perfect mix 
 For politics
 'Cause he sure knows how to scream " .
 They all ooh'd and aah'd and choochy cooed
 Saying yeah, he's one in a million
 As I looked in bother
 And asked , hey mother
 So tell me ! , what's a brazilian ? .

Inspired by Danielle White's early memory contest ..

    VERY good> I had to think a moment about the last line. Was still dwelling on the "political" line and then realized brazilian had nothing to do with politics. hahaha. This did not win anything? What a shame. Well, that is it for today. NExt time I will try to catch up on many others again.

    So!! What is a Brazilian? I remember being strung up by the hands and slapped in the face. What a way to start a life. Good luck in the contest. Vince
