Happy Birthday, Thithter!

In The Music Man, the Winthrop Paroo (the little boy played by Ron Howard) speaks with a lisp. When Harold Hill comes to town, he brings hope and excitement to all the boys, telling them that they can be in a band. Winthrop, who is normally shy and withdrawn, becomes animated and runs to his sister, Marian, to tell her the news: "Thithter! Thithter!"

For years now, that is how we address each other..."Hey thithter!"

Say Happy Birthday to my Thithter...Okay?
