Yesterday October tenth our intrepid reporter, Fiorella Springyfeet, interviewed Old Granny Grindle, in her thimble out on Pepper Fern Lane.
Granny, on behalf of Fairy View Times, and myself Fiorella Springyfeet, thank you for giving up your time for this interview.
Granny: Would you like some more pepper fern tea, dearie, or a few more pepper fern tarts?
Fiorella: Uh…no Granny. My belly is near to bustin as it is. What our readers would like to know, and what I would like to know, is what made you decide to run for mayor this fall.
Granny: Run…run. Not a body tolds me I had to run for anything. I am too olds to run for anything. Besides I is always been best at flying, not running.
Fiorella: No…no Granny you don’t have to runs, I mean you don’t have to run anywhere.
Granny: But you saids…
Fiorella: I’ll rephrase the question. Why do you want to become mayor of Fairy View, since you live a way out here on Pepper Fern Lane.
Granny: I is been tolds that the mayor gets to go too all the parties in Fairy View and even else wheres.
Fiorella: You want to be mayor, so you will be invited to all the parties.
Fiorella: Do you intend to help the residents of Fairy View?
Fiorella: Would you mind telling me some of your plans, then?
Granny: Of course not, dearie, are you certain sure, you wouldn’ts like another cupful of tea?
Fiorella: I suppose a sip or two won’t hurt. Now, what do you intend to do for the folks in Fairy View?
Granny: Mind my own business.
Fiorella: What about fixing up the roads and a new Tooth Fairy High School?
Granny: Golly woggle, Fairy View Folks don’t expect me to do those things all by myself?
Fiorella: I understand tomorrow night is the…
Granny: It is goods you understands something, dearie.
