The Life Of A Battery
THE LIFE OF A BATTERY
By Beth Carter
AAA watched wide-eyed as Mom opened the batteries and dumped them into a big jar. For once, we won’t have a disastrous Christmas without batteries.
“Ouch” AAA whispered as she clanked against 9Volt.
Mom turned out the lights as the batteries elbowed for room.
“Stop snoring," said D.
“Quit shoving me," said C.
“Why’d you wake me? How’s a curvy girl supposed to get any sleep,” said D.
“You’re just jealous of my slim figure,” said AA.
“Ditto,” added AAA with a smirk.
“This is gonna be a long night. Where’s my Prozac?” added D.
“Shhh. How’s a battery supposed to get any sleep?” asked 9Volt.
