Another thing I did that may or may not be attributable to father was a play I wrote in 9th grade. Evidently this was in response to an assignment of some kind. I decided to write a play called 'Odysseus and the Malaka Monster'.
Three or four of us put this play on in front of the class ending in the refrain 'Malaka here, Malaka there, Malaka, Malaka, everywhere.' As we did this we repeatedly made an obscene gesture to the class which fortunately the teacher had not seen before.
