The Tale of Jennie Bean: Short Story

This is the tale of a girl named, Jennie Bean…

Who was small, not tall and sometimes could not be seen….

Her tights were red and her sweater bright pink…

And she was known for leaving dishes in the sink…

Her hair was long and brown and parted in two long tails…

She loved to dance and sing and tell funny tales….

Her laugh was quite loud and sometimes it made milk go through her nose….

But she did not care because sometimes that is the way it goes…

And so thus we begin the tale of sweet Jennie Bean, who was always kind and never mean…

Even if she could not always be seen….

Little Jennie Bean could smile big and stand on her toes…

She could jump and hop and skip and sound out every word she knows…

But there was something different, something only known by a few…

When speaking to Jennie Bean, she might not be able to hear you…

Sometimes she will nod along and hope she is responding right….

And at sleepover parties, she will wear hearing aids all through the night…

She does not sign and does not know how…

With hearing aids fit in her ears, that’s all she needs right now…

After all, the hearing aids don’t just help her hear…

They are a super power that others might fear…

While a simple playtime with Barbies came this wonderful find….

Hearing aids can double as a telephone line…

Yes, that’s right and most certainly correct…

With the touch of a button, Jennie Bean can connect…

Imagine her parents’ crazy and wild surprise….

When Jennie Bean had ordered a pizza that one time…

With a touch of a button and a few simple words or more….

A large pepperoni with extra cheese suddenly showed up at the door….

And of course there was that other time when that mean girl cut in line….

She said words to Jennie Bean that made her feel far less than fine…

So with a touch of a button and few simple words or more…

Mean girl’s parents were suddenly waiting by the door….

With cell phones in their hands and an angry glare…

They gave mean girl quite an angry stare….

Making quick calls is not the only thing these hearing aids can do….

With a touch of a button, small Jennie Bean can hear every if, and, or moo….

She can hear what you say, even if you are far….

Like that time she heard Bobby when he said he was stuck in some tar….

She can read, write, add and subtract and do well in school….

‘Cause those hearing aids are her magic, super power tool…

She can happily read a book or two or three…

During long car rides while everyone is asleep…

With those super power aids, there’s so much more to share…

As her super powers are fancy and some say a bit rare….

    Like that one time, she and her friend, Lizzie…

Spun around and around and Jennie Bean did not get dizzy….

                  While Lizzie shook her head and declared Jennie Bean would get the crown…

            Of the girl who could spin and spin and never fall down….

So I conclude the tale of Jennie Bean…

Who was tiny and small and could not always be seen….

In her ears, she had a power that made her strong and stand tall…

And with this power, she knew she was stronger than them all….
