Hi, I'm Little Man.I have a stuttering problem. I just sometimes want to be like other kids. But I cant.
My only friend, and my best friend, Rat is taking a vacation to his cousin's farm, and wants me to run his newspaper route.
The day before my first day on the route,I realized I would need a knife to cut open the papers. My knife wasn't sharp enough, so I gave it to the neighborhood junk man, Ara T, to sharpen it for a quarter.
When it was the day of the route, Ara T still hadn't given the knife back and I thought he stole it. I went to the bus stop were I got my newspapers and went on my way. My first stop was Mrs. Worthingston and when I went by, I threw the newspaper on her front porch. She said I need to stop and walk it up, not throw it.
My next deliveries were TV Boy and Mr. Spiro. TV boy never stopped staring at the TV and Mr. Spiro was interesting. Mr. Spiro never stopped asking questions about me. I talked so much, I fainted. When I woke up, I was in Mr. Spiro's house. I said "thank you." When I was about to leave, he gave me a piece of a dollar bill that had "student" written on it.
The day I fainted, I came back to my room and all my stuff was gone. A ladder was going to my window and I knew it was Ara T. I told my Nanny and she went down to a bar. She told me to wait outside. I got scared and I ran into the bar. Inside, Ara T was harassing Nanny. I went over, got a bottle and threw it with all my might. It hit him in the head and he got really angry. Just then, the paper bus man came in and stabbed Ara T. The next day, I got my last piece of the dollar bill from Mr. Spiro and Rat came home.
