Has Always Been Big Fan of Recess
TORONTO (Slings And Arrows) — Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s actions late in life may have been ingrained in him as a child. In an exclusive interview with Mr. Harper’s third grade teacher from Northlea Public School in the Leaside neighbourhood of Toronto, Slings And Arrows has uncovered some striking similarities.
“Little Stevie was a shy child,” says Miss Mary Idowtit, “to the point where he hardly ever came to school. When he was in class he was very quiet and didn’t interact well with others.”
Asked why she referred to the Prime Minister as “Little Stevie”, Mary Idowtit, a 70 year-old spinster, now living in Fort Lauderdale Florida, where she enjoys watching CNN, said, “He’d stay home practicing that harmonica, closing his eyes, pretending he was Stevie Wonder. I think that may explain why he was so ‘uptight’ as a child, and even now as an adult, although I hear now he has friends and he’s getting some help from them.”
“That poor boy,” said Idowtit. “Even when he did come to school he wanted to go straight to recess. But you know he must have been home-schooled because he kept calling it prorogation. Big word for such a little boy. He wasn’t like the other boys at all who were always trying to scare me up onto my chair for some reason.”
When asked if he thought he knew what the word meant, “I doubt it” said Idowtit. “He’d say he needed time to recalibrate so he knew in which direction lunch hour was going to go.”
