A significant person


Describe a significant person (teacher, neighbor, mentor, coach, parent, sibling, sweetheart) with as many physical details as possible, but no clich├ęs! (If you’ve heard the expression before, don’t use it.)

David Pope.  Rarely has such a heavy boot come along to leave such an imprint on my memories.  He was my tenth grade math teacher and one of the few I performed well under in high school.  He had a voice like a very pleasant kazoo and could captivate you with it using the tales from his younger days.  It certainly helped that he wasn’t intimidating at all, standing barely an inch higher than my head and carrying a large sack of calories in his stomach for all the world to see.  His think-lensed glasses also gave him a distinct appearance as well.
