Andis said something. along those lines when he turned over, in bed, to see it was 7:55 a.m. on his bedside clock.
What was the significance of 7:55? Tony’s school van was to come pick up him at 8:15. His parents were going to have to boogie to get him dressed, washed, fed, and at the van stop in time. In attempting to do this, Andis had to quicken the tempo of the house atmosphere, by clapping and singing a "get up!" song. Tony laughed at this, but he balked at the idea of getting out of bed all the same.
Now, it is the pleasure of this blog to report that his parents did get him there, but Tony was still sleepy when the van arrived. Standing, he bowed his head and closed his eyes. Being picked up, he put his head on his father’s shoulders. He didn’t protest or show he had any spring in his step.
