Finish the story begins with: “The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be…”
Teresa Dean Smeigh copyright August 2015
The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be special. He was tiny for his age, sort of a wimpy, girlish type of child.
When he was around 17 he ran away. He went to the big city. He started growing into a big man. Larger than any of the men in his family. His body filled out.
One day a scout for a local gym saw him on the street and approached. “How would you like an all expense paid membership at my gym? All you have to do is fight for me.”
Luigi signed a contract as “Luigi the Squeegie.” Didn’t take a genius to figure that one out.
Luigi’s family came to the city one day to see the fights. They heard about this famous Luigi who was known for cleaning up the floors with his opponents.
As the contestants were introduced, Mama fainted dead away. Papa stared at Luigi. THEIR Luigi.
