Tired of carrying her heavy story all by herself, Meggi Beth finds a step upon which to sit. As she rests, the street carries a variety of people to her, all of them lost in their own thoughts. She asks a busy elderly Mister to hold her story, but he seems laden with his own stories. A mom, whose manuscripts and planners are falling out of her clutch, trots down the street; others follow, barely pausing to notice Meggi Beth. Everyone seems too laden with his or her own stories to stop and hear hers. When a lovely, lonely dog becomes friendly with little Meggi Beth, we are reminded that youngsters need pets, and that pets are excellent listening buddies.
