Forever Mastadon ~ Episode 216
…I forgot what I was going to say….
Attorney Moore is ankle deep in horse apples, knee deep in hay and up to his neck in angst.
“Not to worry Worth old boy, Rex has everything under control. I remember when we were kids and I was out visiting his pop’s farm… ” ____ PLENTY OF TIME FOR WORTH’S MIND TO WANDER____IS THE MILKMAN COMING TODAY?____ I DO LIKE THAT NEW CARTOON “DENNIS THE MENACE”____HARRY TRUMAN IS DOING A BANG-UP JOB____“... But we went over to the General Store and bought him a carton of Camels and a Baby Ruth and he was happy.”
“I forgot what I was going to say.” Eddie is a sidebar waiting to happen. “Didn’t we have something else to tell him Fanny?”
“That Baby Ruth is your favorite candy?” Funny Fanny.
“I favor the maple variety Bun Bar…” Now Worth remembers… “Oh yes, you’ll need a police escort to get into Comiskey Park. It’s over 4 miles on busy streets.”
“Got it covered Worth, my third Cousin Elston from my mother’s side works all the ballgames, he still sneaks me in after the first inning starts. I haven’t been to a game this year, I don’t like cold baseball, but last September I saw them sweep the Bronx Bombers all the way back east.”
“How many cousins do you have Eddie?” Fanny steps in to change the subject.
“Let’s just say the Dombroskis and Baxters got busy after V-J Day.”
Even with a 12 word sentence, Eddie D. can deliver excess information.
