Donald Davis spent three happy summers working at the local drive-in movie theater. His most memorable co-worker was "Mrs. Mease, who could tell by looking at a car's suspension how many people were in it." Davis’s gleeful delivery says it all - literally and figuratively. Another co-worker, Mr. Yant, the projectionist, "had the most wonderful and profane vocabulary," which left Donald continually hoping that the man would become irritated. Davis's delivery, with his Southern drawl, presents listeners with an audible picture of a man who "sleeps all day." Even those who've never seen an outdoor movie theater will feel they've missed something special.
