“While watching Beauty and the Beast with my aunt, she pointed out that my dad and I are a lot like Belle and Maurice, which I can’t believe I never noticed. I am a quiet person who likes to read, while my retired-mechanic dad liked building contraptions (including a unique wood-splitter) with old parts. (He’s envious of Maurice’s wood-chopper.) We’ve also both been seen as odd, but it’s okay, ‘cause we’re close. I love watching Beauty and the Beast more than ever now.”
