Sock Jock

Yes, Kathy was slightly "different" after the accident. Many who awaken from such trauma find Jesus or a worthy cause, but Kathy had instead deluded herself into thinking she'd mothered five sock babies. As we looked on her in confused horror, she would spend hours rocking them to sleep and singing them gentle lullabyes, even after she got sent to the asylum.

"A sadder case there never was," remarked Nurse Twombley, tightening the straitjacket.

It takes so little to make her happy, though.
