Very Early Event

I’m going to share something about myself that I don’t remember.
I heard about it years ago from my Mom, so this is a second-hand,
hearsay memory
.

It used to be common practice for the doctor to slap a newborn baby
on the bottom to get the breathing started.


According to Mom, when I was born, I was hollering before I was
all the way out.

I was telling the doctor, in no uncertain terms,
“You’re not smacking my butt!”
