Chapter Twenty-Three

Hercules the Lesser told Louise once – over a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy – that sometimes he wished he was Booger Wilson. Louise was dumbfounded. She reminded Hercules the Lesser that just about everyone General John G. Pershing Elementary School hated Booger Wilson – even some of the teachers. Hercules the Lesser told her that hate was better than apathy.

He didn’t envy Booger Wilson’s life – he just felt that being roundly hated was better than being roundly ignored. Louise thought differently but didn’t argue.
