“Hi Mom,” said Jack, a 6-year-old who loves to play with Barbies.
“Hi,” replied the mom, “do you want a snack?”
“No,” said Jack, “I’m going upstairs in my room to play with my Barbies.”
“Okay,” answered the mom frowning because Jack has a problem with Barbies.
Later, when Jack was playing in his room, he heard something say, “Play with me; I’m better than barbies.” The voice came from his closet.
Freaking out, Jack asked, “Who are you?”
“I’m your best friend. Play with me.”
When Jack opened the closet, nothing unusual was there. There were only clothes. On the floor, however, was a big baby head that went unnoticed. Thinking he must have just imagined the voice, he was no longer scared and instead felt a bit silly. When he closed the closet door, nothing of any interest happened.
When it was 9:00 P.M, the mom came to tuck him in. “Goodnight,” said the mom, “Don’t let the baby head bite.”
“What?!?!?!?” exclaimed Jack as a sudden rush of confused terror overtook him.
When the mom left after telling Jack she was joking around, he heard something again: “Hi! Play with me!”
Then, after the closet opened, Jack saw a baby head floating in the air!!!!!
In the morning, the mom came in to wake up Jack, but when she walked in… Jack wasn’t in his room, but there was the baby head on the floor.
