RDP Monday: SEED
Aggy Draper’s mother was disappointed when she realized Aggy’s eyes were not blue.
Everyone knows babies with blue eyes are the prettiest babies of all.
You only had to look at Homemaking Magazines and Christmas Cards to know that is
Aggy Draper’s father was disappointed when he saw that Aggy’s skin was not fair and pink.
Everyone knows the prettiest babies are pink.
All of the babies in soap commercials that
are floating on white clouds and wrapped in soft white blankets are pink.
Aggy Draper’s parents were disappointed that their daughter
never laughed or played with dolls, or had many friends
and the friends she did have
were so much more sparkly and pink then their own dull Aggy.
After Aggy Draper grew up
and left home
and lived alone
as her parents watched her age and fade
they knew had been right about Aggy all along.
Aggy was alone because

and sweet pink babies are so much more lovable
then their own
