New Book Excerpt: DORM RATS, A Neighborlee, Ohio book
So that proved what Pop said, that everyone interprets and explains unexplainable things based on their own beliefs and experiences.
Where was I with this story? Oh, right. The day before the incident of almost falling through the ceiling. Meeting Emma and Jake Crowder, future parents of Pete.
Emma stood up when we approached. "You have got to be Lanie and Harry."
"Why do we have to be?" Harry said.
Yeah, that was my brother, the literalist. Between learning a second language in less than a year, and being so proud of his parents who were writers, and his big sister who was on the school newspaper staff, Harry liked playing with words. He also got a kick out of the reactions of everybody when he played word games, especially when he went very strict with the literal meaning of the words. Kind of funny that he didn't go into writing, but chose a profession where he works with his hands, and I might add, is very good at it.
