David, the middle child, is not bouncy like his big brother Abbott; he's not cute like his little sister Clarinda; only his secret friends Angel Bold and Zing-Zing Badly know that he is ""like his very own self. And Somehow Remarkable,"" and David wishes that some quite ordinary real people knew it too. ""But they didn't....And then, they did. All in a minute, they knew!"" It won't take you even a minute to spot the preciousness in this over-capitalized, over-italicized, over-punctuated homily; even the ending is Somehow Familiar.
