This is the original version. Apparently, Kristin wrote it when she was, like, 9 years old. I was fascinated by it because it didn't fit the traditional story cycle, but it did follow a pattern that half of my girls in my class followed when I made them do that wrong-handed writing exercise. Kristin, who's in my class now, totally ripped herself off and just retold a story she made up when she was little. But it's pretty cute, anyway. So here it is.
In case it's too hard to read, here's the text: "Betty the Fish. Once there was a fish his name was Betty. the fish his owner was kristin. He loved her. the worst day of his life is when we had to clean out tank. I love my fish. and he love me two. the end."
yay for cute kids and the stories they tell!
