I was born a boy. The midwife saw how disappointed my mother was so she ran off and fetched her another child, a girl. That, too, was me. Mother was pleased; the two of them remained best friends until the day of my Pioneer pledge, when I insisted I wore pants. I was so handsome that day that my mother couldn’t help agreeing to marry me when I am of age.
