    1. Ricky Schroth: We're one big sad monster. Four legs, four arms, two heads, two noses.

    1. Ricky Schroth: I'm gonna stay the same. You like me now but, you won't like me later. You're gonna grow up. I'm not.

    1. Harriet Frankovitz: Sometimes I thought my mother was smart and really beautiful. Other times I worried a nest of spiders was living in her hair and they were eating through her skull and chewing on her brain.
    – Submitted by Lea L (3 years ago)
    1. Ricky Schroth: My mother says before I was born I was the same as everybody else, better even. My mom says I'm from a place where I'm the smartest person there, everybody sings.

    1. Harriet Frankovitz: My mother says I was born with an angel on my shoulder. This is supposed to bring me luck and happiness. I think she lied.

    1. Harriet Frankovitz: I always wished for the same two things which were really only one thing. I wanted something magical to happen to me, and I wanted my mother to get well.
