Have you ever noticed that at OHS nobody gets trash-canned, swirlied, or their money to buy cookies stolen? Well, no one in OHS has the guts to do that because they know what the consequences are. Most people notice it but never think anything of it. There is a story behind it and whether you believe it or not, it is true.
Tiny Tim is his name and no one knows his real age but he has been protecting the seventh graders for as long as any OHS student can remember. He has big, blue eyes, and he doesn’t wear any clothes but he is white, cloudy, and transparent. His voice is squeaky and he smells like cologne. He is always making jokes and though he is kind to the seventh graders he can still be very mischievous. At night you can find him in a different locker every night sleeping soundly and in the daytime he ambles around in the halls looking for high school kids that are bullying the new seventh graders. Tiny Tim is very cute, and only about 3 feet tall. “But how can he scare anyone if he is only 3 feet tall?” you ask. Well he has his ways!
Tiny Tim is always making up new tricks to get back at the older kids for picking on the seventh graders. Sometimes you will be sitting in class and out of the blue you’ll hear a shriek or scream followed by giggles and laughs. Then you start to smile because you know that some high school bully has learned their lesson. Or other times you will see someone spontaneously fall in the hallway and you know Tiny Tim was feeling a little rascally today. One of his annual tricks he does is hiding in the bathroom stalls, and when a high school student opens the door he jumps up and shrieks! If you happen to be in Mr. Hostert’s class at the time he does this in the boys bathroom you know that Tiny Tim is at it again. Another great trick he does is if someone has been picking on a seventh grader again, he will hide in the vending machine. When they bend over to grab the food they have bought, he will slide out of the slot and scare them so bad that they fall over!
Tiny Tim has always given seventh graders great relief and will continue to do so for a long time to come. Like I said, Tiny Tim is most certainly not just a legend, he is a protector of the OHS sevies, and whether you believe it or not he is definitely real.
