Carolyn Jamieson has a story to tell. It's not your average everyday story that any normal almost twelve-year-old would tell. You see, Carolyn was high up in a tree one early evening when uncle Ted thought he was alone in the park with her best friend Jimmy.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon -

Jimmy always wanted to drive that car. Uncle Ted always showed up on Thursday to visit Aunt Jean and he would always leave her a little money to help out. While Uncle Ted visited, Jimmy, Carolyn and the neighborhood kids would hang all over his car. Jimmy always sat behind the wheel. Uncle Ted would come out of the house and yell at the kids causing them to run and scatter. He would always sock Jimmy in the arm leaving behind a bruise every time. Carolyn and Jimmy would be stuck wiping all the fingerprints off of the car before he would leave.

Carolyn couldn't figure out why Uncle Ted was always so mean to Jimmy. It was as if he had a secret hate for him. One Thursday evening in the park Uncle Ted challenged Jimmy to a race for a chance to drive the car.

It wasn't man against boy running, but a race with man and car against Jimmy. And then it happened. Uncle Ted hit Jimmy with his fancy blue car, unaware that Carolyn saw the whole thing from high up in a tree. The story goes that Jimmy fell out of the swing and bumped his head. It put him in a coma for a while and when he woke up he wasn't the same.

He now wears diapers and drools. Carolyn knew she had to watch over Jimmy and protect him from Uncle Ted. One day, Carolyn finds Jimmy home alone with Uncle Ted who had been giving him alcohol to calm him down from one of his fits.
