"Tinky Winky showed Po his special dance with the mittens."
-- Teletubbies "Mittens" Episode
Mittens DuBois-Dugan added Mark Dugan to her family July 24, 1999,
right around the same time as the Village's birth. Dugan has been a
fixture in Mitten's life for several years. He was her former youth
pastor, although Mittens assures us no discretions took place. She credits
alphabetical order for bringing the two of them together.
She went to Oklahoma Christian University for a semester, but dropped
out to get married to Dugan. "Like several other girls, I just went
for my M.R.S. degree," Mittens said of her educational background. She
has no further plans to participate in higher education, although she
is determined to home-school her future children. They have recently
moved away from Oklahoma, and currently delighting in their new church,
the Landover Baptist Church.
Instead of accepting traditional literary criticism, Mittens rejects
all that is not Christian. She is currently penning a manifesto towards
a teen Christian literary approach.
And no, Mittens is not her real name. Her real name is Sarah. She got
the name Mittens sixteen years ago. The local newspaper was talking
to the members of the Christmas Pagent at her church. When asked what
the three wise men brought baby Jesus, she replied "Mittens, because
he had cold hands." Her older sister Francine teased her endlessly about
it, and the name "Mittens" stuck.
