A little boy was born and he was only a head. So his mom would set him on the window sill so he could look out and see the other boys playing baseball.

"I sure wish I had a body, so I could go down and play baseball." thought the little boy. And POOF! He had a body! So his mother carried him downstairs and he started to play with his new friends.

"I sure wish I had arms, so I could play third base instead of being third base." And POOF! He had arms! So the little boy started catching balls, but they would often be out of reach.

"I sure wish I had legs, so I could run after the balls." And POOF! He had legs!

Just then, a fly ball came his way and the little boy joyously ran after it, ran into the street, and got hit by a car.
