Oh Tim, you Laughing Man, you! Yes, I think turning irritatation and
laughter can work well...I can imagine Boo Boo trying to make Lionel
laugh as they race back to the house at the end of "Down At The
Dinghy" despite her own irritation with Sandra. I've been re-reading
the Nine Stories for an honor student I'm working with and it's no
chore...pure delight in fact! (Is that the real life link to Mattis
saying I've given him a broken watch?;)will
