Marcella, to her daughter Pearl
Pearl gets a big kick out of rubbing the cats bellies and looking for the nipples. So she sits there petting them and then shouts “I found a nipple!!” And then a minute goes by and again “I found a nipple!” She was doing this when she was supposed to be cleaning up her room before her bath.
