  • Pretty Dumb, but it does show how a lot of people believe in rumors and fallacies...and fears.

    5.0
    Buffy and Jody are talking to a kid school and he tells them that he read an article by a scientist that New York will be hit by a major tidal wave on a certain day at a certain time. Buffy and Jody believe him and Buffy talks to Cissy, while Jody talks to Mr. French about their fears. Both say that there definitely will not be a tidal wave on that specific date and time.

    When Bill gets home, the twins ask him and he is sure that there will not be a tidal wave on the 23rd. At school, all of their friends are scared and Jody and Buffy try to convice them that their Uncle Bill is right...no tidal wave.

    When they get home, they hear Mr. French confirming Bill's trip plans for the 22nd...the day before the big tidal wave! They thien think that Bill did not want to scare them more, so he made plans to take them to Chicago the night beforehand. Buffy and Jody begin to pack their bags.

    When Mr. French sees this, the twins explain why they are packing, and French explains that Bill just has a business trip that leaves the day before the big tidal wave. They do not believe him. They also hear neighbors discussing trip plans because they want to get out of the city before the big tidal wave, that scares them more.

    It is now the 23rd,a nd the twins are getting more frightened by the moment. French and Cissy just scoff at them, but Bill cancels his plans and returns home to be with them. They count the minutes until 5:15, and are not sure what to expect. Suddenly there is a loud noise and they are frightened, Turns out, French just dropped a baking dish...there was no tidal wave.

    It was kinda stupid, but then, kids can be scared of things adults never think of, especially if they hear scary rumors and hear gossip about it. .moreless
