…AND, ANOTHER LITTLE RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS (Act 10)

The Peanuts Gang took the day off yesterday, but Peppermint Patty’s best friend, Marcie, came to visit Sun City Peachtree today!

Like me, Marcie has short dark hair, and like me when I was a kid, she never wears a dress.  She most often wears an orange shirt; yellow and orange was my favorite color combination when I was a kid.  Marcie wears glasses, though, something I haven’t yet needed except for reading small print.

I always liked Marcie, because she’s smart, wise, well-read, sweet, caring and honest—everything I always aspire to be. Charles M. Schulz described Marcie this way: “Marcie is one-up on Peppermint Patty in every way.  She sees the truth in things, where it invariably escapes Patty.  I like Marcie.”

Somehow, Marcie and Peppermint Patty, have always remained best friends, even though they nave very different personalities and compete for their crush, “Chuck.”  Charlie Brown is clueless, though, and neither one ever wins his heart.

Marcie is quite a well-rounded kid.  In addition to being a good student (unlike Peppermint Patty), she’s a good ice skater, appreciates the arts (especially “Tiny Tots” concerts), and takes organ lessons.  Organized sports aren’t her forte, however, because she can never get the rules straight.  As Peppermint Patty once told her, “There is no penalty box in baseball.”

You may remember Marcie as the girl who always called Peppermint Patty, “Sir.”  Was it because Peppermint Patty was a tomboy?  I think Marcie was just quirky, but Peppermint Patty called her a “dorky kid” before they became best friends.

Well, it was great seeing Marcie today, and I look forward to seeing who will be next!
