A young boy with freckles named George was in line at a local fair to have his face painted. George had been waiting all day for this moment to come. When it was finally his turn to have his face painted, a girl turned to him and laughed: “You have so many freckles on your face, there’s no room for any paint!” George looked down, his face scrunched up, and his eyes were covered by his hair. He put his hands in his pockets, hunched over, and kicked some dirt.
