Do you know me?
My name is Freddy. My dog is around here somewhere; his name is Einstein because he’s a genius dog. I used to attend college at Harvard, you probably don’t believe that but it’s true. I used to be as smart as Einstein, especially with math and science. I honored in physics. What happened? Few years ago, I was in a car accident and got all messed up. My body made it through, I still can’t walk real good and I hurt in some places most all the time, but what didn’t get better was my head, my mind; I can’t remember things, like names and places and where I’m supposed to be. My family all moved away or died and all I got now is Einstein. Where is Einstein? Do you see a little scruffy dog? He’s the only one that remembers where we left our sleeping bag and food for dinner. I hope nobody stole our food. I hope nobody stole Einstein!
