Writhing in the moist dirt, the worms ignored the raisin toast Jenny crumbled for them to eat.
“Come on, eat,” she said. She shook her head and bit her bottom lip. She kept biting it until it cracked and bled. Just like her fingernails.
Dressed in cut-offs and t-shirt, Jenny placed her cardboard sign around her neck. The twine holding it together was frayed and sun bleached. Her sign said: Idiocy. And on the other side it said: Stop.
Her brother John often imitated Jenny, making faces until she cried. He was the reason she wore the sign. Jenny was determined to teach her brother a thing or two about reading and manners.
It was the most difficult job she had and she bore it like a crusade.Jenny would put an end to idiocy and she decided to start in her very own house. Never mind that the worms didn't eat the toast. She would work on them next.
