You’ve all seen her fancy colored fingernails in So Long Nigel, so you might as well see her “wa’urmelon toez,” as she called them, using her best English accent! An accent that is quite good, if I may say so. She’s pretty gifted in mimicking accents, like the time she came away from a perfume counter on a cruise telling me the prices of different sizes in her interpretation of a South African inflection, “It’s $19.95 for the smoll Papaw, or $29.95 for the larrz!”
As you can imagine how it cracked me up when I came by the couch where she and her Granny were lounging, and encountered her feet suddenly thrust before me, toes up, and her saying, “See me wa’urmelon toez, Papaw?”
“Oh, those are sharp! Does everyone paint’em up like that,” I asked, looking over at Judy out of the corner of my eyes?
“Nope, just me…I started to put my initials on’em…KT,” she said proudly.
“Yes! You know, KT…K A T I E? That’s all I put on my school papers now…just KT! Everyone knows it’s me!”
“Hummm, maybe you’ll start a trend,” I said as I winked at Judy.
“No doubt,” she said. So, I added the letters using Photoshop, just to see what the fad could have been!
It's hard to believe that almost 16 years ago this was her:
She’s a wonder, and always surprising and refreshing to be around, and I love it!
