Drill says I won’t have to take baths,’ said Mink.
‘Oh, he does, does he?’
‘He told all the kids that. No more baths. And we can stay up till ten o’clock and go to two televison shows on Saturday ‘stead of one!’
‘Drill says you’re dangerous. Know why? ‘Cause you don’t believe in Martians!
They’re going to let us run the world. Well, not just us, but the kids over in the next block, too. I might be queen.’ She opened the door.
