Why was Tarin K., My Kindergarten Friend, So Special? First off, he was nice to me and helped me with a worksheet. I don’t remember too many classmates, but I remember Tarin because I really liked him. (I thought Tarin & Karen had a pretty nice ring to it.) He lived down the street from me on the other side and we used to play with trains and army men together. (Yes, I was a tomboy.)
Second, I remember one day he sang “The Battle Hymn Of The Republic” in school as a solo one day. I was so impressed and never forgot it. Every time I hear that song, I think of Tarin and wonder if he remembers me. I even remember his LAST name! If you happen to read this, Tarin, I’d love to hear what you are doing now.
Do you remember a unique classmate? What was so unique about them?
