Five year old Bobby Tewilliger, a primary school student at Bethune Elementary School in Atlanta, Georgia, already knows what he wants to be when he grows up. He wants to be a Wuxi Expat like his heroes Harry Moore, Lloyd Bridges, Harry Callahan, Gregory Peck, Colonel Harlan Sander, Mango and Gorzo the Mighty.
Tewilliger’s home room teacher Miss Wilkinson says Tewilliger is already his own man and rules the Bethune Elementary playground. "Bobby is a preternatural polymath. He already runs a ten million dollar a year plumbing contracting business, written three novels, gotten five female students and four of his teachers pregnant, pitched a no-hitter for the Atlanta Braves baseball team, discovered material that can be a super conductor at room temperature, and designed and manufactured an amphibious main battle tank that can be driven two miles under the ocean’s surface. When he walks the playground sporting a monocle, wearing a Gorzo the Mighty t-shirt, carrying a copy of the Poolside Harry Moore and performing the Prisyadka dance, the girls swoon and all the boys bend their head down reverentially in admiration!"
Tewilliger told the WCE Blog that before he heard about the Wuxi China Expatdom that he was just a run-of-the-mill toddler who liked to watch Dora the Explorer, pick his nose, scratch his bum and drink too much coca-cola. "But when I read and heard about Gorzo the Mighty, Archduke Harry Moore’s many great accomplishments and his novel the Poolside Harry Moore, the revolution that brought down the Ayatollah of Mordor, the Wuxi China Expatdom Royal Navy commanded by Admiral Lloyd Bridges; the music of Harry Callahan and the WCE Trio, and Wonder Woman; I realized that there was more to life and that a Wuxi Expat was what I had to be!" said Tewilliger, who says he is saying money from his plumbing contracting business to buy an airplane ticket to the WCE.
