Discussion with the ghost of Millard Fillmore

the ghost of Millard Fillmore

I was visited by the ghost of President Milliard Fillmore. We were both kind of shy at first. I nodded. He nodded. I went back to building my model airplane. He wandered around the room, occasionally looking out the window.

I put down the model and said, “How are things, Milliard?”

The ghost of Millard said, “I’ve just been exploring, really. Looking around at things.”

I said, “What’s something you’ve seen recently that had an effect on you?”

The ghost of Millard said, “I saw someone making an ice sculpture of an eagle. I was amazed at the carver”s ability to be delicate with his cutting movements. If it had been me, I’m certain the block of ice would have been cut in half, or I would have lost a leg.”

I said, “I hope that when I die, I can visit Antarctica. I can’t imagine I’ll ever get there when I’m alive since I’m so opposed to the cold. I want to get close to the penguins and pet their shiny heads.”

The ghost of Millard said, “When you die, I’ll make sure to catch up with you and we can go together.”

I said, “It’s a plan!!”
