Prophecy - Class of 1953
By Gloria Fargo
The year is now 1966. I have attained my long time ambition of living in Minnesota, although the circumstances are not those I would ordinarily choose. You see my husband and I run the Minnie Ha-Ha Hilarious Home, better know as the Minnesota State Asylum for the insane. We had just begun working here about two years ago, and the first patient we met was Ann Boyd, who had a very interesting hobby of making little animals and people out of chewed chewing gum and then selling them to the other patients for the price of a gum wrapper. I had just begun to meet the other patients when who should I see but Sharon McGrath, who was an attendant. She said that she took the job to be near her hubby, Jerry Arland, who I found out was a very sick man. All he did was climb around in trees and eat bananas. He thought he was a monkey. The next person I met was Roger Craig, who is a regular visitor here to see his fiancee Terry Daly, who I am not a bit surprised to think that she is Longfellow. As I went down to the basement, I met the janitor Joe Webb. He thinks he is the King of England, so we just humor him. He told me he has been secretly in love with our chief cook and bottlewasher Kay Norton for a long time, but she just doesn't care for him. I then went to meet the rest of the patients, as we call them "the nuts." In Ward A, Room 261, whom should I meet but Mickey Seeburger and Sharon Quinn, whom I will take time out to say have been happily married for 6 years. They get along just fine together. They both think that they are parakeets. All they do is sit in their cages and chirp to each other. And then I went onto Ward D, where I met Fred Katzureck and David Forst. They both said they hated women and would never get married. By the way, I might mention the reason they are here. They are both under the impression that they are airplanes. They are always jumping off the roof and breaking a leg or arm. I then went to the supply room where to my great surprise there was Tommy Wyman. He was a bookkeeper and treasurer for the home. (It was then I recalled how he loved Arithmetic.) He told me that he liked his job very much and hoped to remain there until he was 163. He now believes he is 132, so we just go along with that and everyone calls him "Grandpa." I then went into the attic and there was Rose Marie LaVia who was trying to count the stars. She now had the grand total of 4. She told me that she and her husband, Steve Penisten, were both interested in studying the sky. Steve was out on the roof with a 12 inch ruler trying to measure how far he would have to jump to get to the moon. I proceeded to the garden where whom should I meet but Susan Tamse. She told me she and her sweetheart, a tall mysterious boy from Minneapolis, were both insects. She said that she was a lightening bug and he was a caterpillar. The only trouble was she came out at night and he came out during the day. I went into the garage and met the mechanic, Jack Karpan. He said that he would have married, but he never found the right girl. He said he was in love with his car, which I noticed was a 1953 Cadillac convertible. I started into the house again and who was sitting on the porch but Rosann Glas. She was married to Mike Harden, M.D., and she said that she was a trained nurse. Mike was a veterinarian. She said they never saw much of each other as she took care of nuts and he took care of horses and dogs. On the back porch I met Joe Brafford, who told me he was a cat and was going to marry a little kitty named Christine Del Prado, who was now a singer and tap dancer on the Canadian Barn Dance every Saturday night. I then went into the dining room and the maid and butler, Kay Kircher and Mike Couch, whom I mention are Mr. and Mrs. Mike Couch, who served a wonderful supper of fried cateyes and stone biscuits. For dessert we had a lovely burnt chocolate pudding and a stale cake.

Well, in the short time of two days I had met and greeted almost all of my old classmates of '53 at All Saints. As I said, this all took place two years ago and I am now settled and know most of the patients very well. I will end this by saying it was a lot of fun to greet all of my school friends once more.
