...from an email I received... and this was actually reported by a teacher

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their holiday away from school. One child wrote the following: We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They usedto live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Florida .

Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. They
ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because they don't know who
they are anymore. They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed
because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't do them
very well. There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on. At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. He watches
all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in
their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same
thing every night --- early birds. Some of the people can't get out past the man
in the doll house. The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked
center for pot luck. My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too. When I earn my
retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people out,
so they can visit their grandchildren. .....
