I talk about a book each day and today as I was yakking about one, I found within the pages of the book-talk-book an old photo of me and my pal Mary when we were long ago on Stow Lake. I put the pic on the presenter so that it projected to one and all.
"Look at this cool foto," said I.
Sixers laughed and hemmed and hawed.
"What's that in your hand? Is that an action figure?" a sixer asked.
"Yes, he's from the movie Dune," I told them. "I used to take him everywhere."
"What GRADE were you in?" asked another sixer.
"I was in college," I answered. The sixers looked at each other and did some eyebrow raising. The photo made the rounds of the classroom a few times and as I was moving on to the etymology of the word "ludicrous," one sixer said, "I like how you look now better."
I thought that was nice Because Mary and I looked quite pleasant indeed in that foto.
