A Girl's Essay On Boys
A Girl's Essay On Boys.
Boys are sort of men that have not got as big as their papas. Therefore boys must have been made before men. Girls are women that will be ladies by-an-by. Man was made before women. He was called Adam. But man was not perfect. So Eve was made. Eve has been liked so much better than Adam that there have been more women than men ever since.
Boys are a trouble. They wear out everything but soap. If I had my way half the world would be girls and the rest dolls. Except my papa. He is so nice that I think he must have been a little girl when he was a little boy.
