          ***** a person should feel as good at 90 as he did at 17, and he would

          actually be as smart as he thought he was at 17.

          ***** you could give away a baby bed without getting pregnant.

          ***** forget-me-nuts would stimulate the memory.

          ***** doing what was good for you would be what you enjoyed doing the

          most.

          ***** pro baseball players would complain about teachers being paid con-

          tracts worth millions of dollars.

          ***** people would always have good reasons to be optimistic.

          ***** you would never fumble, but if you did, you would recover the ball

          yourself.

          ***** the mail would always be early, the check would always he in the

          mail, and it would be written for more than you expected.
