TRUDY AND JUDY LOOKED UP AT THE STARS
Trudy and Judy looked up at the stars. "Do you think we'll ever get up there?" said Judy. "Someday", said Trudy. "Once they invent space helmets that will fit over our gargantuan heads. And then we can leave this place and never be teased about the size of our heads again." They looked at each other and locked fingers. The wind was warm. "I sure hope that day comes soon, Trudy", said Judy. "But I kinda feel like we're all alone on a star right now. It sure is peaceful out here." Trudy smiled and said, "Yeah". A coyote bayed. Cactus' everywhere held their spines at attention.
