TITLE

INEZ WAS AND HAD BEEN A "DREAMER" ... DREAMING RECURRENTLY OF RE-FRIED BEANS

UNLIKE HER HALF SISTERS AND BROTHERS WHO SHARED THE LAST NAME OF JENKINS, INEZ WAS INEZ MARTINEZ. SHE HAD "APPEARED" ON THE NUT FARM AROUND THE YEAR 1938 AD, COMING FROM THE SOUTH - PERHAPS AS FAR SOUTH AS THE POLE (OF THIS, OR ANOTHER PLANET)... THEN NORTH ACROSS THE SOUTHERN, NO-WALL BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES... FURTHER NORTH THROUGH THE ARBUCKLE MOUNTAINS, MEANDERING ON NORTHWEST TO AS FAR AS WHAT WOULD BECOME A STATE OF MIND... BORDERING OKLAHOMA - A KIND OF ABROGATED "WARPED" AREA - SO IT SEEMED...

INEZ HAD BECOME IMMEDIATELY SANCTIONED; ADOPTED BY THE CHILDREN WHO WORKED ON THE NUT FARM. SHE HAD BECOME EXPERT AT CRACKING AND SORTING NUT MEATS, THOUGH DURING HER TENURE THE INVENTORY HAD TAKEN A HIT. MANY TIMES SHE HAD "MISTAKEN" SOME OF THE LARGER MEATS AS BEANS... RE-FRIED ONES AT THAT, AND HAD, UH, POPPED ENOUGH OF EM SO THAT SHE HAD BALLOONED...

BUT THE CHILDREN LIKED HER CHUBBY. SHE WAS CUTE. THEY ALL ENJOYED PICKING HER UP AND SQUEEZING HER...

JIMMY WAS BEST AT IT... HE WOULD SQUEEZE INEZ JUST ENOUGH TO CAUSE HER TO GIGGLE AND SQUIRM AND PASS A LITTLE GAS! HE WAS METHODICAL; HE HAD PERFECTED HIS METHOD OF GENERATING INEZ’S “DISCHARGE” SO THAT THE RESULTS WERE SATISFYINGLY PREDICTABLE. THE OTHER CHILDREN WOULD GATHER ROUND AND WATCH AND ANTICIPATE THE INEVITABLE OFF-WHITE THIN VAPOR STREAM MATERIALIZING FROM INEZ'S BACK DOOR...

THE RITUAL HAD BECOME CEREMONIAL... THE HEAVENLY "FATHER" HAD OBSERVED IT ALL FROM THE ROOM UP HIGH IN HIS TOWER. "HE" ENJOYED WATCHING...

ONE WOULD CERTAINLY HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO BE PRESENT IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND...
