    Talking I want a bike

    Little Lailah came into the kitchen where her mother was making dinner.
    Her birthday was coming up and she thought this was a good time to tell her mother what she wanted.

    'Mom, I want a bike for my birthday.'

    Now, Little Lailah was a bit of a troublemaker. She had gotten into trouble at school and at home. Lailah's mother asked her if she thought she deserved to get a bike for her birthday. Little Lailah, of course, thought she did.

    Lailah's mother, being a Christian woman, wanted her to reflect on her behavior over the last year, and write a letter to God and tell him why she deserved a bike for her birthday. Little Lailah stomped up the steps to her room and sat down to write God a letter.

    LETTER 1:
    Dear God:
    I have been a very good girl this year and I would like a bike for my birthday. I want a red one. Your friend, Lailah
    Lailah knew this wasn't true. She had not been a very good girl this year, so she tore up the letter and started over.

    LETTER 2 :
    Dear God:
    I know I haven't been a good girl this year. I am very sorry. I will be a good girl if you just send me a red bike for my birthday. Thank you, Lailah

    Lailah knew, even if it was true either, this letter was not going to get her a bike. By now, she was very upset. She went downstairs and told her mother she wanted to go to church. Lailah's mother thought her plan had worked because Lailah looked very sad.
    'Just be home in time for dinner,' her mother said.

    Lailah walked down the street to the church and up to the altar. She looked around to see if anyone was there. She picked up a statue of the Virgin Mary, slipped it under her jacket and ran out of the church, down the stree t, into her house, and up to her room. She shut the door and sat down and wrote her letter to God.
    LETTER 3 :
    I GOT YOUR MAMA. IF YOU WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN, SEND THE BIKE.
    Signed, you know who

    That's what I call desperate measures Sandy (haha)
