159. Patty

Patty was my smart-girl best friend from second to fourth grade. She wore her hair short, walked fast in the halls and challenged convention. Boys weren’t so tough – she had brothers – and they were susceptible to poisoning with girl cooties.


Patty tried to get me off the habit of biting the thumb of my snowman mitten!
