The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after she shared a status update from actress, Mara Wilson…
Mara Wilson: People sometimes tell me Bruce Bogtrotter eating the cake in Matilda was one of the most stressful things they’d experienced as a kid. I always want to say “In that case, I’m really glad you had a happy childhood.”
Selma G.: And I was just sitting there all jealous wanting some cake. 😐
Will O.: I think all the little girls being physically brutalized was a bit worse
Selma G.: Roald Dahl that stinker!
Rayn: “Smells chocolatey, eh?”
