Disappearing in the Green.

(This is the story the Douglass girls like most of all and often ask to hear.)

One day when they were boys, Johnny convinced Billy that if he were entirely green, their mother would not be able to see him hiding in a tree. Billy wasn’t so sure, but agreed to (or something like that) give it a try. He stripped naked and Johnny painted him green, head to toe. He then climbed up in a tree, believing he was blending in with the leaves. However, far from not seeing him at all, their mother, upon her return home, turned a bit red, as did Billy’s bottom shortly thereafter!
