By the storytellers of the Huntington
Once upon a time...
There was a little boy that wanted to get into the Huntington. His mother told him he was too young.
His mother said he was misbehaving.
He's so young he thinks the teddy bear is misbehaving.
He is Roger Richard. He's 4 years old.
His mother's name was Mary - she's wearing sunglasses 'cause it's a bright sunny day.
It's in the spring.
Roger forgot to get his socks on.
The poor boy just got up too late.
His mother needs a shoe tied - he wants to tie his mother's shoe.
He's playing with his teddy bear - he's cuddling something.
He wants his mother's sunglasses.
He's got pretzels in there.
His mother is fixin' to say something. I think she's probably going to say, "Oh, thank you! It's perfect, I'll put that right on my pillow."
Mary is in prison and Roger came to visit her.
She had him illegitimately and they put her in prison.
Roger stole the pretzels from a sweet little old lady at the Huntington.
He looks like he's sorry he stole something.
Mary seems to be very happy about being in prison.
Roger has a daddy - there has to be a daddy but we don't know who it is but his mother knows.
Look at the hair - you don't get that done by accident.
The Huntington bus brought Roger to the prison. April brought him.
Roger visits his mother probably once a month - he can only get out of daycare once a month.
When he grows up, Roger wants to be a doctor to take care of his mother.
He just won the lottery - that's how he's gonna take care of his mother.
Roger wants a little girl - she's in school with him. Her name is Huntington (it's an old family name). They call her Hun.
He could be a window washer but that window is a "pane" in the neck. His squeegee doesn't even fit in the window. He called Eli to help him.
Mary wants to get out of jail, find a husband, find out who the father was, and have a happily ever after.
She spent 5 years in prison.
She wants a middle-class home.
Right now Roger lives in the nursery at the Huntington.
When Mary gets out, she's gonna take that kid to the shoe store and get somethin' that better fits him.
She's gonna put out an ad in the paper describing the little boy to find out who made him.
A millionaire answered the ad - his name is Big Bucks.
They lived happily ever after.
