Also, don't you just dread the umpteen retellings of this story in June's letters from the Pattersons? Elly: "I guess you've all heard about Merrie's little accident." Dr. John: "Meredith broke her arm, but Deanna is the one who is scarred." Mike: "We had a tough break -- literally." Liz: "As a teacher, I'm used to seeing kids with cuts, bruises, casts and stitches." April: "Becky is soooo roadside." Edgar: "Woof." Jim: "I'm not dead! Don't close the lid! Help! Can anyone hear me!?"
I just bet he turns out to be totally prescient!
