Interview with Patsi Tibbett

Patsi w borderQ: What is your full name?
A: Pat Tibbett.

Q: Really? I thought there was more to it than that.
A: Do I really have to? It’s so embarrassing!

Q: The audience would like to know.
A: Patsi Mae Tibbett. There! Who names their kids Patsi Mae and Lester Ray? It’s like my parents were listening to bad country music or something when they had us.

Q: Beyond that obvious sore spot, what else can you tell us about yourself?
A: I’m in my first year of college. It’s so boring and I hate my Math class. My brother insisted that I go, though, so here I am.

Q: Your brother is your guardian, is that correct?
A: That’s right. Our folks died when I was nine and Lester has been my guardian ever since. He’s quite a bit older than me, but I guess it was better than going to live with some old aunt in Saskatoon that I didn’t even know. He is kind of over protective, though. He treats me like I’m a little kid and I’m almost eighteen. He doesn’t even want me to get a job, which is stupid because I need money to buy stuff. he just wants me to study all the time or something.

Q: Was it his suggestion that you move to the city?
A: Yes, although I was ready to get out of Coulee Creek anyway. It’s so boring there. Not that Lester lets me have too much fun here in Calgary, either. I can hardly wait until I’m an adult and then I can do what I want.

Q; Surely you must have some friends?
A: I did meet this one girl, Megan. She’s nice and she tries to help me with my clothes and hair and stuff. And she has a really cute older brother, too. I think he likes me, but don’t tell Lester that. He would freak.

Q; Sounds like you have some plans up your sleeve.
A: Maybe. I’m not saying anything else. It’s really none of your business anyway.
