After Christmas break, 

the Teacher asked her small pupils how they spent their Holiday. 

One little boy's reply went like this: 

"We always spend Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma. they used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Arizona. They live in a park with a lot of other retarded people. They live in tin huts. they ride tricycles that are too big for me.  

They all go to a building they call the wrecked hall, but it's fixed now. they all do exercises but not very well. they play a game with big checkers and push them around on the floor with sticks.  

There is a swimming pool, but guess nobody teaches them, they just stand there in the water with their hats on.  

My Grandma used to bake cookies for me, but nobody cooks there. they all go to restaurants that are fast and have discounts.  

When you come into the park , there is a doll house with a man sitting in it. He watches all day so they can't get out without him seeing them.  

I guess everybody forgets who they are because they a wear badges with their names on them.  

Some of them don't hear very well. They could hear better if they took the buttons out of their ears.  

Grandma says Grandpa worked hard all his life to earn retardment.  

I wish they would move back home, but guess the man in the doll house won't let them out."
