CHAPTER 1 : I walk down the street. There's a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I'm lost...I'm helpless. It isn't my fault. It takes me forever to find a way out. CHAPTER 2: I walk down the same street.There's a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don't see it. I fall in again. I can't believe I'm in the same place. But it isn't my fault. It still takes a long time to get out. CHAPTER 3: I walk down the same street. There's a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it there. I still fall in...it's a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately CHAPTER 4 : I walk down the same street. There's a deep hole in the sidewalk . I walk around it. CHAPTER 5 : I walk down another street.--- There's a hole in my sidewalk by Portia Nelson
