Elie and I went through school together from Elementary through High School. We didn't know each other that well, but somehow we went to the Safety Patrol Boy Dance together in the sixth grade. That was the year of The Twist; there was a dance contest and Elie and I won! Who knew that he and I could rock The Twist? I doubt we had ever danced together before that evening. I think it was the old balloon-balanced-between-our-heads move that wowed the judges. Not only did we win the contest, but they crowned us Queen and King of the dance! Ha! this is what I remember of Elie: a huge grin on his face and a paper crown perched rakishly over one eye. I wish I had known him better.
