    Zonker, I’m sure your parents have your birth certificate.

    Zonker yearning to become a number in the system? Is he sober?

    Wait a minute, Zonk has been a nanny for four years? Not with Sam, who is still non-verbal. Confused.

    Not an alien, but apparently psychic.

    Zonker is just a relative of Hunk-Ra. That’s why he’s working for Boopsie.

    I was in a rural post office mailing a letter and a lady, about Zonker’s age walked in and asked to get a SocSec number!

    Not that sort of alien I suppose, but I mean really. Aren’t we all aliens at some time or other? Even if we just go to another town or school for a football game. We ain’t from around these parts.

    In 1987 SSA began the “Enumeration at Birth” program. All babies born in a hospital are given a SSN card, which is automatically mailed to the parents. This was done because you cannot list a child on your tax return if he doesn’t have a number. Also, it keeps both parents from trying to claim the child, if they are divorced. If you were born prior to 1987, you have to apply to SSA for a number, either in person or by mail. You need it to get a job. If you manage to reach age 18 without a number, you need a very good reason at to why. Otherwise, they think you are trying to commit a fraud.

    But yesterday Zonker was feeding this child with a bottle. And weeks ago she was just this “grown”. Does Sam just grow and shrink as required by the story line?

    Who else has he been a nanny for? I thought Sam was the first?
