"It was a week before Christmas.The tree was in its usual beautiful splendor, although at eight years old, I definitely cared more about what was under the tree than on it. My dad was at work, my older brother Jerry was off somewhere with his friends, and Mom was in the basement doing laundry. With the spies out of the way, I seized the opportunity to investigate my presents."
"One special Saturday afternoon, Mom and I went downtown where she often went shoe shopping. Mom had a very small foot, "a five and a half with a quad A heel," she would tell the salesman when he asked her size."
