When I was four

Betty:
When I was four, just four years old, I went to my mother and I said, "What's this hole in my chin?" - I saw this dimple in my chin in the mirror, and didn't know what it was. And my mother said - get what my mother says - she says, "When you're born, you go on a assembly line past God, and if He likes you, He says,
[grabs her cheeks with both her hands]

Betty:
"You cute little thing!" and you get dimples there. And if He doesn't like you, He goes,
[presses one finger on her chin]

Betty:
"Go away." So about six months later, my mother found me saying my prayers, and I was going,
[holds one hand over her chin]

Betty:
"Now I lay me down to sleep..." My mother says, "What are you covering up your chin for?" And I said, "Because if I cover up the hole, maybe He'll listen to me."

Transcript:
Okay. When I was four, just four years old...
I went to my mother and I said,
"What's this hole in my chin?"
I saw this dimple in my chin in the mirror
and didn't know what it was.
And my mother said -
Guess what my mother says.
She says, "When you're born,
you go on an assembly line past God.
"And if he likes you, he says, 'You cute little thing,'
and you get dimples there.
And if he doesn't like you,
he goes, 'Go away."'
So, about six months later,
my mother found me saying my prayers...
and I was going,
"Now I lay me down to sleep."
My mother says,
"What are you covering up your chin for?"
And I said, "Because if I cover up the hole,
maybe he'll listen to me."
