Kayleigh Is Blue



When Kayleigh was a piglet, she had a pet fish called Marvin. One day Marvin was no more. Either he had disintegrated from old age, or one of Kayleigh’s family members had eaten him. Marvin’s passing made Kayleigh sad for a while.

“Kayleigh is blue,” her mother said to everyone at all times.

That did not make Kayleigh feel better. She knew in her heart she was pink but spent the rest of her piglethood squeezing her eyes and grinding her teeth to turn blue to live up to her mother’s expectations. Because that is what piglets want to do.
