"Fear is stupid. So are regrets." Marilyn Monroe I think in all actuality, Myrtle was seen by Williams as a sort of poor man's Marylin. I see her that way too. She would have wholeheartedly concured with the above statement...except for her fear of water. And Chicken...at first. But she sort of liked that kind of fear. And she was never one to look back in regret!
