Fix It

"It'll show you how I've gotten to feel about – things. Well, she was less then an hour old and Tom was god knows wear. I woke up out of the ether with an utterly abandoned feeling, and asked the nurse right away if it was a boy or a girl. She told me it was a girl, and so I turned my head away and weep. 'All right,' I said, 'I'm glad its a girl. And I hope she'll be a fool – thats the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beutiful little fool.'"
