Tickling TheodoreTickling Theodore
One fine day I, Alex Bayden, was walking through the city park when I spotted Theodore Seville sitting alone on a bench. He was throwing bread crumbs to the birds pecking around, and he looked so sad. So, I went over and sat down next to him with the intent to cheer him up.
Me: Why so glum, little one?
Theodore: Oh, um Dave says I-I shouldn't talk to strangers.
Me: A-heh, well I won't hurt you Theodore.
Theodore: H-how did you know my name?
Me: Ha Ha, who doesn't know you? You're Theodore, of the Chipmunks. Name's Alex.
Theodore: Oh, uh r-right; Nice to meet you. W-well I wanted to have some fun today.
Theodore: Alvin's busy playing basketball, Simon is studying with Jeanette, Brittany is practicing for a play, and Eleanor has a cold.
Me: Oh, tsk. That's too bad.
I was looking down at my feet when I heard a bell tinkle. I looked up to see a passing ice cream cart. A wide smile split across my face.
Me: How about some ice cream, Theodore?
