Chapter 1. And You Wonder Why We Get Called The Weird Watsons

BY: Madison Floyd

The Watsons go to Birmingham

it was very cold outside
It was very cold outside
  • “ It was one of those super-duper-cold Saturdays. One of those days that when you breathed out your breath kind of hung frozen in the air like a hunk of smoke and you could walk along and look exactly like a train blowing out big, fat, white puffs of smoke.”
  • “ It was so cold that if you were stupid enough to go outside your eyes would automatically blink a thousand times all by themselves, probably so the juice inside of them wouldn’t freeze up.”
kenny and byron had to scrape the car s windows
Kenny and Byron had to scrape the car’s windows
  • “ Dad pulled two ice scrapers out of his pocket and said,“ O.k., boys, let’s get out there and knock those windows out.”
  • “ We moaned and groaned and put some more coats on and went outside to scrape the car’s windows.”
byron got froze to the car
Byron got froze to the car!
  • “Keh-ee! Keh-ee! Hel’ . . . Hel’ . . . ! When he started banging on the door of the car I went to take a peek at what was going on.”
  • “ By was leaned over the outside mirror, looking at something in it real close. I picked up a big, hard chunk of ice to get ready for Byron’s trick.”
  • “ Ke-hee! Keh-ee! Hel’ me! Hel’ me! Go geh Mom-ma! Go geh Mom-ma! Huwwy uh! He banged his hand against the car harde and started stomping his feet.”
  • “ I moved closer. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Byron’s mouth was frozen on the mirror! He was as stuck as a fly on flypaper!
  • “ Momma, quick! It’s By! He’s froze up outside! I screamed, “Really! He’s froze to the car! Help! He’s crying!’
  • Remember….???
byron got froze to the car continued
Byron got froze to the car! Continued…
  • “Momma, please hurry up!”
  • “ The fly was still stuck and buzzing. Oh, Mom-ma! Hel’ me! Geh me offa ‘ere!”
  • “Oh my Lord’! Momma screamed. Joey, of course, started crying right along with Byron.
  • “Daniel Watson! What are we gonna do? What do ya’ll do when this happens up he-uh?”
  • “Dad said, “I don’t know, pouring water on him might be the worst thing to do, bit it might be our only chance.”
  • “Momma tried to pour water on the mirror but her hands were shaking so much, she was splashing it all over the place. Dad tried too, but he couldn’t look at Byron without laughing and shaking. That meant I had to do it.
  • I gently poured a little stream of water over the mirror. Dad was right! This was the worse thing we could do! The water made a cracking sound and froze solid as soon as it touched the mirror and By’s lips!
byron got unstuck from the mirror
Byron got unstuck from the mirror!
  • “Momma gave Byron’s head a good hard snatch and my eyes automatically shut and my hands automatically flew up to cover my ears and my mouth automatically flew open and screamed out, Yeeeowwww!
  • “When I opened my eyes Byron was running to the house with his hands over his mouth and Momma following right behind him.”

Kenny’s First Impression
  • “As soon as the boy thanked the driver in that real polite, that real country way I jerked around in my seat to see what the other kids were doing to do to him.”
  • “I knew they weren’t going to waste any time with this new guy, it was going to be real easy and real quick with him. He was like nobody we’d seen before. He was raggedy, he was country, he was skinny and he was smiling at everybody a mile a minute.”

“I know it was Sunday because I heard Joetta getting ready for Sunday School.”

“She did look kind of pretty too, she had on lacy white hat and little lacy socks and shiny, shiny black shoes.”

“She had on a fluffy white skirt, a regular blouse and the little white gloves Grandma Sands had made her.”


“It seemed like every animal and bird and bug in Birmingham stopped making noise for about two seconds . It seemed like everything that was alive stopped whatever it was doing and was wondering the same thing: What was that noise?”

If one of our dogs got hit by a car and could walk away or if one of them chewed through an electric wire or ran away from home and showed up a couple of weeks later half-starved or something they’d head right for the back of the couch.

The only trouble was that the magic powers seemed to be taking a real long time to decide what was going to happen to me. Maybe I wasn’t spending enough time back there.

  • My Adam’s apple felt like it was going to blow a hole in my throat but I said “I did go to the church, By. I saw what happened. I saw two of those little girls. I thought Joey got killed too.”

Magic powers


He grabbed my ear and twisted my head until I had to look at him. “You think I don’t know you waiting for some stupid magic powers or genies or an angel to make you feel better? Dig this: you can wait behind that couch for the rest of your life and ain’t no magic powers gonna come back there and make you feel nothing.

He walked over to the mirror scrunched his face up so he could look at his chin again, then used his thumb and finger to pull that long, skinny hair out a little bit. He let the hair go, smiled at himself and ran his hands along his head like he was brushing his hair.

  • Some of the time I wondered if there was something wrong with me. A few minutes ago I’d been crying on the floor like a kindergarten baby and now I was looking in the mirror laughing. I blew my nose and out. Besides, I had to think of a way to get at least half of my dinosaurs back from Rufus.
  • “Come in Joey.”
