i heard this story once on the radio|
i don't know who it's by, or what it's from
but it's my second favourite story of all time, i think
i'm going to type it up completely wrong
if you recognize it, pleaseplease let me know what it is:
once upon a time there was a little boy named timmy
timmy was a good little boy, but all he could say was 'uh-huh yeah'
when he was on his way to the grocery people on the street would say 'hi timmy!'
and timmy would respond with 'uhhuhYEAH'
his friends would say 'how's it going timmy?'
and timmy would say 'uh huhyeah'
'nice weather we've been having'
and no matter what they said to him, all timmy would ever have to say was 'uhhuh yeahUHhuhYEAH'
pretty soon no one bothered talking to timmy anymore
and he didn't have any friends
people almost never even said hi to him in the street anymore
so timmy got very lonely
he would just walk around all day talking to himself:
'uhHUHyeah uh huh YEAH uh-huhyeah UHHUH-yeah'
people thought he was strange and stayed away from him
one day, a fairy godmother appeared before timmy
and the fairy godmother said 'hello, timmy'
and timmy said 'uhhuh yeah'
and the fairy godmother said 'i'm your fairy godmother, timmy'
and timmy said 'uh huh-yeah'
and the fairy godmother said 'would you like me to turn you into a very smart little boy?'
and timmy said 'uhhuhYEAH'
'what's that?' said the fairy godmother, 'i can't hear you'
timmy said 'UHHUHYEAHUHHUHYEAHUHHUHYEAH'
and the fairy godmother said, 'ok, timmy, i will make you a very smart little boy'
and waved her magic wand and turned timmy into a very smart little boy
timmy was so excited that he ran off to find all of his old friends to let them know how the fairy godmother had made him smart now
when he found them they saw how excited he looked so one of them said 'hi, timmy'
and timmy opened his mouth and said
for, you see, timmy was always a very smart little boy
it was just that for some reason, though he was smart, he could only ever say 'uhhuh yeah'
trapped in a body he couldn't control,
timmy jumped off a bridge
Moi, j'avais jamais rien dit. Rien
