TheTheresa The The Biggest Fan Of ‘The The’ In The The World

READ ALOUD

‘The The’ LP was laid on the the table with ‘The The’ poster glued on to it.

‘The The’ fan was THE ‘The The’ fan. She had been thethere, done thethat, bought the the-shirt. So much of a ‘The The’ fan was she that the word ‘the’ on it’s own has lost the meaning it once had.

‘Can you pass me the the teapot?’, she asked me, deaf to the repetition.

‘Who was your favourite band again?’, I coaxed.

Theresa looked at me, incredulous. How could I ask such a thing?

‘How could you ask such a thing? You know the answer; it’s ‘The The The The’.

“Theresa-”

She slammed her hand on the counter.

“Don’t you Thetheresa me!”

The the dirty plates, the the dirty dishes shaking from the the sudden slam.

”The The The The The The’ are the greatest band ever, what must I do to show you?’

She walked over to the stereo. She takes a disc from ‘The The’ collection. She places it in the tray. It closes. The hit ‘The The’ song, ‘This is The The Day’ came through the the speakers. Thetears on Thetheresa’s cheeks.

‘Thetheresa?’ She was shaking. Was she OK? ‘You’re shaking, are you OK?’

”The The The The The The The The’ saved my life! The-The-They are the the the teh eht only band that mather in the world the.’

‘Thethetheresa, stop, you’re the scaring the me.’

Oh no.

‘Thetheresa, I don’t even like ‘The The’.

‘The? The the who?’

”THE THE’! I DON’T LIKE ‘THE THE THE THE THE THE THE’, THETHERESA! THETHEY SUCK!’

Thetheresa pulled the the knife out of the the drawer in the the kitchen and thethethrew it at me. It spun thethrough the the air. It hit me in the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the face.

The the end.
