A Lone Mitten

“Who’s mitten is this?” the Kindergarten teacher said as he picked up the lone mitten.

“Not mine!”

“Not mine!”

“Not mine!

The chorus was loud and sure.

The teacher approached a Kindergarten girl, “Is this yours?” She looked up and shook her head.

“Again,” the teacher boomed, “Does this mitten belong to anyone in here?”

Eighteen little ones replied, “Nooo!”

Interesting how these mittens (or various objects of clothing) appear and no one claims ownership, until a parent shows up. Reminds me of Cisnero's short story Eleven.
