Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling The Adventures of The Passive Aggressor No one suspects that Louis Maltby is actually THE PASSIVE AGGRESSOR, hero of the oppressed! Louis: ...so he totally wipes out and his bike falls apart! Boy: Huh. Hey, Reinert. Wanna come over after school and see my new dirt bike? Reinert: Sure. Boy: Cool. Reinert: Yeah. The Passive Aggressor is not one to take that kind of slight lying down! His course is clear and must be executed with merciless determination. Even as time passes, his steely-eyed devotion to his mission does not waver. Parent: Louis, I didn't even know you were home! Are you OK? Louis: I'm studying! Finally, the climactic moment of his daring act of rage comes to fruition. Parent: Louis, it's dinnertime! Louis: I'm not hungry! Parent: Louis, is everything OK? Louis: Yes! Why? Thus is the Passive Aggressor's revenge exacted! The Earth trembles beneath his terrible vengeance! Parent: Well, come down if you get hungry.
