So, can you spot the difference?

We have our answer! Thank you for playing!

Robin Williams was a teacher, a genie, a nanny, Peter Pan; to those of us that didn’t know him personally, we’ll remember him by the characters he portrayed. This Chicago-born man of many faces brought laughter to us through his comedic antics, awed us with his acting, and inspired us with his philanthropic actions. Here’s the top 10 ways I’ll recall him. How will you remember him?
10. Delusional Holy Grail seeker: One of his lesser known characters in The Fisher King,this is a great film to check out if you like Arthurian legend AND Jeff Bridges co-stars!
9. Jilted children’s TV show host: Death to Smoochy is a weird one, but worth a watch it also stars Ed Norton, Jon Stewart, and Danny DeVito.
8. Therapist/counselor: A “wrong side of the tracks” storyline, Good Will Hunting made me want to make the most of my potential…and work on my math skills!
7. Irreverent DJ: Good Morning, Vietnam is a classic, anti-establishment flick. It showcases Williams’ comedic antics.
6. Loving husband: What Dreams May Come is visually stunning and it’ll make you consider love and afterlife.
5. Nanny: I can remember the first time I saw Mrs. Doubtfire - I was at the age when I spent most of my time at the mall hanging out with friends and going to the movies. Williams in drag had us cracking up for days!
4. Teacher: Dead Poets Society really resonated with me. I didn’t really understand it until re-watching it during my high school years. It reinforced my love of literature and made me want to BE John Keating.
3. Peter Pan: Bangarang! Hook was one of my faves growing up - I played this movie over and over and over!
2. Alien: My earliest memories of Williams are from the TV show Mork & Mindy. This was before my time, but I can remember watching reruns with my older sister and brother when I was a wee one - nanu nanu!
1. Genie: A “diamond in the rough” story, Aladdin is still one of my favorites! Another movie that I watched constantly; I still know the words to every, single song.

Timer

by Max B.

Time passes timers tick

He walked down the hall and looked at the clock on his wrist and then quietly scolded himself, looking at it wouldn’t make it go any faster.

She sighed at her timer it refused to go any faster. No matter how hard she stared it still counted down second by second “3 years 5 months, 13 days 5 hours 18 minutes and 29 seconds.” she stared at it harder willing it to speed up. When all of a sudden she felt someone bump into her.

“Sorry” he said willing himself not to look at his clock, instead he looked at hers and he couldn’t stay quiet. “3 years… that’ll be a while.” he mentally slapped himself; it’s rude to talk about the timers

“Yeah” she said feeling a little sheepish. “How long do you have?” it only fair.

“Quite a ways to go” he said looking down.

“How long” she asked irritated…it’s only fair. “I don’t like to talk about it” he said. There’s probably sixty or so years she’s heard about those with long timers. They are almost never happy maybe he needs a friend

Maybe he could be a friend

Time passes timer ticks

Its prom night and he and she decided to go…just as friends

He danced…badly so she led

She sang…off key so he took that lead

He and she laughed…loudly

It was fun

Later on a boat ride that the school scheduled for all prom attendees they almost kissed

She pulled away said “it feels like I’m cheating on my future soul mate”

He understood, he always would.

Later that night when he and she parted ways he looked at his timer…and once again sighed in disappointment

Unbeknownst to she too looked at her timer…every day she got a little bit closer

Time passes timer ticks

Exactly 3 years 5 months, 13 days 5 hours and 29 seconds from the day he and she first met she met her soul mate.

Exactly 2 days 1 hour 28 minutes and 43 seconds late he met her soul mate.

They all got along

The soul mate was quirky and kind and funny the soul mate was everything she wanted

He was happy for her and her soul mate.

Though he couldn’t stop looking at his timer.

Time passes timers tick no more.

Exactly 1 year 3 months 6 days 3 hours 13 minutes and 6 seconds after she met her soul mate they were married.

He was her best man…odd but they were a quirky crew.

He danced one last dance with her during the wedding.

Later he was approached by her soul mate.

“Hey man” said the soul mate.

“Hey” he said.

For a while there was silence just the pair standing sipping their drinks.

“Hey i have a question.” said the soul mate trying very hard to sound casual.

“shoot.” he said praying that the soul mate wouldn’t ask the question…

“How long do you have left on your timer?” the soul mate did in fact ask the one question he didn’t want to answer.

“A while.” he answered.

“How longs a while?” asked the soul mate with a smirk.

“Longer than most would wait.” he responded taking a swig from his beverage.

“Fair enough.”

Later he watched them drive into the sunset and he looked at his wrist.

00 years 00 months 00 days 00 hours 00 minutes 00 seconds.

It hadn’t changed since.

4 years 8 months 19 days 3 hours 31 minutes and 35 seconds ago.

When he met her

This was the only time he looked at his timeless timer today

It was a good one

Time passes timers tick no more
