Finish the story begins with:  
The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be…”

LUIGI

“The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be…” 
Harriet’s voice dwindled away as she became absorbed by the picture in front of her.  The photograph album was open but this was the picture her index finger had landed on.

Her visitor looked up into Harriet’s face. 

“Aunty, what happened to Luigi?  Who was he?”

Caroline patted her aunt’s hand encouraging her to continue.  This was a member of the family she wasn’t aware of. 

Harriet began to speak again and told her great-niece the family story.  Luigi was a precocious boy, always wanting attention but somehow everybody adored him.  The female members of the family attended to his every wish, he never cried, never wanted for anything and then he grew up to be a body part model.

Harriet looked at her great-niece, “I’ll let you guess which body part, my dear.”

The two women, separated in age by 50 years, both burst into fits of giggles.

  9. Well, I've head of hand models. There are probably models for other body parts, but I never heard of one for a part that causes giggles. I suppose there's always a first time. Really creative, Sally. :) --- Suzanne
