AND I MEAN IT, STANLEY

The words are those of a swaggering, raggedy-muffin, very small girl who calls through a fence as she goes about constructing a sort of figure from assorted junk she picks up around the lot. ""Listen, Stanley. I know you are there. . . I don't need you, Stanley. . . I am having a lot of fun. A lot of fun! . . I am making a great thing, Stanley. . . I don't want you to see. . . You stay there, Stanley. . . Don't even peek. . . ."" This kid is a master of negative psychology and it's evident that Stanley won't be able to resist, but his appearance at the end will surprise you just the same. Good fun, from attention-catching start to knock-down finish.
