I'M MELLLLLLLLTTTTTTTTIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGG...

1) Sit on Daddy's bed in the master bedroom and watch "Bewitched".
2) When it's over it's time to walk myself down to afternoon kindergarten, three blocks straight from my house to Frances Willard Elementary School.
3) See Marty Hathaway on the playground, waiting for the doors to open.
4) Watch him flap his arms, close his eyes and shrink down to the ground pretending to be the Wicked Witch of the West from the "Wizard of Oz".
5) Listen to him say, "I'm mellllltttttiiiiinnnnggggggg" all the way into the classroom and most of the afternoon.
6) Repeat every day of kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grade.
7) Always wonder what happened to Marty Hathaway.

I think Marty owns a match factory in Hot Springs Arkansas.

Oh...so, you were into verbal repetition too???

Michelle O'Neil said...

Was Marty autistic? Or was he just trying to bother you?

Speaking of the Wicked Witch....did you read Wicked?

It's so creepy and good.

Oh, Wicked is SO good.

I hope Marty read it.

Pretty sure Marty sells soy candles at farmer's markets in beach communities.

Maybe you ought to Google Marty and send him a copy of Wicked. I agree it was creepily wonderful.
