Maggie S.'s Latest Interactions
Hi All! Yes, Phil - the Breakfast Bunch, and Alice, Purple has totally become my favorite color to wear! I just wore an "all purple" outfit to a dinner tonight.. I'll email you a picture some day soon. I hadn't known about the uncle, or exaclty about the sugar either - although I knew it "seemed" to be an accident. At the time people talked about Paul being quiet and a loner, and maybe it was suicide, but in our homeroom, he was fine and friendly, and I just knew him as a science genius, and that he was known to have lots of checmicals at home for his home science projects - so that's where I thought the cyanide came frome.. I'm glad we're talking about the details.. Yup, Akers 144 (I think!).. For sure at our "young" ages, we hadn't seen or known of too many kids our age dying - so it was defintiely something I have never forgotten, and Alice, I'm sure I have told the story, and people have looked at me with that "are you sure?" look.. but - it's good for all to be reminded of the truth - that horrible day - and realize that even a genious could make a terrible mistake. The sugar packet thing makes the whole thing more understandable - I might have known it then, but long forgotten about it - but for sure he was eccentric so that type of habit does not surprise me at all. I totally remember that he had basically a whole science lab at home.. maybe that's where the uncle came into play.. Linda - what a horrible thing for you to have witnessed.. I can't imagine. I remember seeing some boys (totally unrelated) that had been in a big fight - and even that was something I had never really seen before, and it stayed with me. Can't imagine what that must have been like for you.. I hope it helps that we are talking about it - and getting more details to the picture of that terrible day.
