Sport 18: Autumn 1997


page 45


Inés is shopping at the supermarket. She hears a faint voice calling for help. A young boy has his head stuck in a clothing donation bin. Inés tells him not to panic. If he got his head in, he can get it out. She suggests standing on tiptoe. His head slides out easily through the slot. The young boy grins at Inés, puts on his hat and does a joyful little jig.

That night Inés dreams she is in labour. It is difficult to give birth. The head of her second son keeps appearing and retracting.
