ella: "mama, how come the only instrument in jail is a harmonica?"
me: "because it's small, it isn't too loud, and lots of people can learn to play the harmonica pretty quickly."
ella: "how come most people try to get out of jail?"
me: "because it's no fun. you don't have your family, you don't have a tv or phone or computer, you don't have books, you only have a bed and a place to go potty."
ella: "AND a harmonica."
