Tie baby to antique highchair with dishrag;

Stop by great-grandmother’s house
to listen to tale of man
whose eyeball was hanging out of the socket.

Baby gets mesmerized by “Thriller” on the television.

Four o’ five:
Baby squawks at Billie Jean.

Four ten:
Baby crawls(!!!) to Elmo.

Baby is fed
(smelling of apples, apricots, brown rice).
Baby to bed.

Eat ribs.
