Fingerprint Pointers

Meira Feinman

We all have them, yet none are exactly the same. In fact, they’re all so different that even identical twins don’t have the same ones. They’re formed before we’re born, and they stay the same throughout our lives. Have you guessed what they are yet? We’re talking about fingerprints, of course! (Though actually, the same could be said for toe prints, also unique to each person.)

 

Babysitting Blues

Zehava Gordon

No matter how she tried to amuse them, reading in an animated way that exhausted her or singing songs that amused all her other little clients just fine, the children would alternately whine or cry for their mother, the beautiful Mrs. Feigenbaum who seemed to want as little to do with them as she could. And truth to tell who could blame her?

 

My Little Sis

As told to Elky Pascal

I let out a deep sigh. This was the fourth time that my little sister Rikki was knocking on my bedroom door. Why was she bothering me so much tonight? Didn’t she realize that we had a murderous history midterm to study for? And she didn’t know that I had four friends over?
