Being the Little Women fan I am, I’ll do an interview today! It’s with Theodore Laurence (you may know him better as Laurie)!
Thrilled to have you with us, Theodore!
TL: Merci, Ms. Tiwari.
Me: [blushes because he said tHANK YOU TO ME IN FRENCH]
Q: Uh- a- a little about yourself, Theodore.
A: I’m Theodore Laurence, better known as Laurie. My wife’s named Amy and a daughter called Elizabeth. My best friend is Jo, who is Amy’s sister. I’m very close to the March family. I live in a house called Parnassus.
Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: I’m generous (I think) and I’m a very jolly sort of person.
Q: How did you feel when you pranked Meg?
A: [blushes slightly] I thought it was a very good idea at first, but when Mrs. March scolded me, I was truly ashamed of myself. I will continue to be embarrassed by the memory forever.
Q: Moving on to good memories. Which incident with Jo was most fun with you in your childhood?
A: All my time with Jo was extremely fun, but the time she cooked was truly hilarious, because the food was horrible, and she was hoping that it would be good. I had kept going on and I was laughing internally all the while! I think Jo must have seen that laughter in my eyes, because she burst out laughing, and we all laughed till tears ran down on our cheeks.
(Note: Chapter 13 of Little Women, ‘Experiments’ for those who don’t remember!)
Q: What’s your favourite quote?
A: “Not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do is the secret of happiness.” -J.M. Barrie.
(Note: I know the timeline doesn’t fit, but this quote seemed very Laurie-like.)
Love having you here, Mr. Laurence!
