So what was Poor Thing Andy doing? Sitting on a bench behind some bushes reading a book. No girl (too shy) No ice cream (not enough $) No skateboard (can't do that stuff -- lack of coordination -- long story) No Ipod (not that interested in Music) No video game store at this shopping area No friends in the area Nope, lost in his own Andy world, reading. Now, no one got an exact answer, but Michele Zwart was the first one to guess reading so she wins! Michele, send me a private message at Splitcoast -- I am Joan B, and we will go from there. You will enjoy dealing with Karen at Paperosity! By the way, I read most of these answers to Andy and we both had a good laugh. He said, they don't know me very well, so they?? Back to cleaning my stamp room. Good grief, this is the worst it has ever been!
