Dear Donnie,

You have not turned in your home werk for the last two weeks.

I know that you have been mercilessly bullied by the left since your mispronunciation of “Yosemite.” They don’t know how hard you have been werking on your ‘silent e — long vowel’ grammar rule.

I think your speech writer deliberately tried to trip you up with a foreign word. You should fire him. Besides, maybe you’re right and every one else is wrong. The Miwoks probably do say “Yose-might”.

Your remedial reading teacher,

Miss Shene

Her writing muse lurks in the volcanic hills amidst mustangs, marmots and jackalopes. While hiking with her dogs, Ann stumbles upon stories of dark humor.
