the gypsy’s curse

Ten year old Harold and his eight year old sister Margret were good kids but Harold was quite lazy about doing his homework. Mrs. Zgura, his mother’s Romanian friend, often teased him about it: “Herrald”, she’d say, “eef you dun’t do humvork, Jeepsies veell keednep littell seester, iven vonce you forrrget”. He did his homework daily for a while. One day, though, he got distracted by friends so he never bothered. The next morning he went into Margret’s room to greet her. Chills ran up and down the boy’s spine.

    Dear Larry,

    I’m hoping that littell seester is hiding. If I’d thought not doing homework would’ve gotten my big brother kidnapped I’d never have done any. Come to think of it, I wasn’t very good about homework.

    Good story.

    Funny story. Hopefully the mom and her friend were in on this “kidnapping.” Or maybe the little sister decided to play a joke on her brother. My son was the same until he went to college and was paying for it himself. 🙂
