On Being Stubborn

Once upon a time there was a little girl who lived in Albuquerque.  Every night, and every morning, her mother sent her off to brush her teeth.  Just because her mother told her to, she didn’t do it.  She never stopped to think whether it was a good thing to do or not.  She just didn’t do it because her mother told her to.  She was a very stubborn little girl and she didn’t like to do what she was told.  She never asked herself why.  One morning, she woke up and all of her teeth had fallen out.  (Not all of these stories will have happy endings.)
