Come, my dears, and sit round,. Sit at my feet and listen to me,. As I tell you a story, a tale,. If good, quiet children you will be. Now this story is a story just like most other stories,. About a man just as simple and normal as a slice of pie,. And the extraordinary and un-normal thing that happened to him,. He did not care or bother about it,. For he quite abhorred extravagance, and agreed with things that were quite plain. By six twenty, his hair was combed till it sat stiff and flat on his round head. At quarter to seven he ate a simple breakfast,. At seven fifteen, his hat, coat and scarf were on,. He was out of the house, hurrying down the street. Perfect, down to the last tittle and jot. At home, hanging up his things, seven sharp,. He sits down to a bowl of pea soup and stale bread,. Puts on his nightgown and sits down with his paper and pipe,. Or if this concludes the story of Barnabus White,. On another very normal day, while he sat at his favorite lunch spot,.
” and how savage children can be. Those who are over fifty will be reminded of some of the sexist attitudes to girls which prevailed in the middle decades of the last century. And all of us who have ever been children will remember that one of the sad but necessary entrance fees to the adult world is loss of innocence…. Archie says it’s because I’m too young to know heartbreak. He was sitting with his feet up on the kitchen table, cutting lumps off a slab of butter, rolling each lump in sugar, tossing it in the air and trying to catch it in his mouth. What a good time we’d had in the budgies’ graveyard last summer holidays. Unfortunately, my father saw us shooting arrows at dead budgies hanging from the clothesline. I looked at the four half crowns. One was very new and glinted in the sun. Archie could have a share. But I knew Archie. I put two half crowns on the wall, then the other two, whilst making up my mind. Half shares each. That would please him, wouldn’t it. What a time we had. In Woolies, we bought a matchbox car each, and new pencils with rubbers on the end. Archie bought a water pistol. Archie called me a swot when I got a bottle of ink for my new fountain pen.
Grandma and Nana both could watch television without paying anyone for the privilege. Not only that, they could watch Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley, Milton Berle, Burns and Allen, Martin and Lewis, Abbot and Costello, Amos and Andy, Nat King Cole, Dinah Shore, Jackie Gleason and Art Carney, and don’t... When I lived in Mount Pleasant (which is neither a mount nor pleasant, discuss), I had a landline that couldn’t receive calls. I could dial out, but I had no idea no one could dial in. I just figured no one wanted to talk to me. Then, Mother asked me why I never answered my phone. A dozen service calls later, I cancelled the service since they could never get it to work. In a mobile home, and this is still about mobile home living, the wires for the phone jacks are under the house where the fuse box is located. Verizon was able to wire the one jack on the side of the house with the connection that Comcast drilled into the exterior wall the day I moved in without asking me first because he didn’t know the wires for the cable lines were under the house. Then I spent the day trying to get ahold of someone at Verizon until a customer service rep informed me that the reason I couldn’t dial out was I didn’t pick a long distance provider. I couldn’t even dial 911 to inform them I was going to cut a bitch if my phone wasn’t working in ten minutes. I could dial Baltimore, but not my own cell phone.
