Time: 1961.
Place: A row house in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
*************************
"Mommy,
Bobbi's got 64 CRAYONS!"

"That's nice."

"Yeah! It's a big BOX!
It's really BIG!"

"Julbie, you're not getting
64 crayons."

"But, BOBBI'S got it!"

"You wouldn't even USE half
of them."

"It's got all different COLORS!"

"Your coloring is just fine
with the colors you have."

"Yeah, but I could do MORE
with 64 crayons, Mommy!
I'd have all these COLORS!"

"Where's your Hebrew School book."

"I HATE HEBREW!"

"Your grandfather came all the
way from RUSSIA, so that
his GRANDCHILDREN could
study Hebrew."

"WHY?
I HATE HEBREW!
Can't I get 64 CRAYONS,
like BOBBI*?"

"Because, Julbie,
you don't NEED them.
It would just be a WASTE."

"It WOULDN'T be a WASTE!
Bobbi uses ALL of THEM!
We used ALL the COLORS,
at HER house!"

"Well, then you can use them at
her house. Why don't you want to study
Hebrew. Your grandfather
couldn't study Hebrew in his
country."

"I HATE HEBREW!"

"Julbie, you're driving me
crazy."

"Mommy! I wouldn't WASTE
THEM! I would put the box
on the dining room TABLE!"

"We have enough on the
dining room table, right now.
Vey z'mir."

"I'd have all these COLORS!
There's even TUR'KOYSE!"

"Julbie, you would never use
them. I know you. You would
just set them up on the
table, and look at them,
even during dinner."

"That's not TRUE! Bobbi's
GOT them! BOBBI uses 'em!"

"There's nothing wrong with
your box of 8 colors.
Where's your Hebrew
School book."

"How come I can't have
64 CRAYONS, like BOBBI?"

"Julbie,
you're driving me
crazy."

In memory,
Elaine Michaelson.
I love you, Mom.

around the corner on Forest
Avenue. Her mother's house
was spic and span, and she had
upholstered plastic on all the
furniture. "Days of Our Lives"
was always playing on the
black and white television,
when I was playing over there.
