It was summer and I was six years old.
My sister and I were in the backyard, eating cherries. They were so yummy.
When we finished, we brought the bowls into the house to give to my Grandma.
"What, Angela? No cherry pits?" my Grandma asked me.
"No. I ate them," I said proudly.
My Grandpa walked by. "You know what that means?"
"No. What?" I answered.
"A cherry tree will grow out of your ear", he told me.
"That is silly!"
The next morning, I went downstairs for breakfast. Grandma turned to me and said, "My heavens, Angela! What is growing out of your ear?"
I ran to the mirror and there it was – a tiny branch with little leaf buds sprouting from my ear.
Grandpa walked by. "Just like I said - a cherry tree."
The tree grew every day.
At first, it was fun. My friends came to see the cherry tree growing out of my ear. Birds flew into my cherry tree and sang there all day. The cherry blossoms bloomed and it smelled wonderful.
Except for the occasional bee buzzing around my ear, it was fun.
The cherries ripened and everyone came to eat the cherries from my cherry tree.
They were so yummy!
