  1. This one’s just for fun …

    I’m not sure where I was planning to address writing to a prompt …. If nowhere else it would be in Chapter 14 on State Testing.

    HIGH TEA 101

    I’m not sure why I have so much trouble writing when some tells me to write …. or when someone tells me what to write about. After all, I’m a teacher and that’s what we do …. tell people what to write about, when to write, how to write, and even where to write. (From here I will tell the story about when Judi asked us to bring something to read at Brian Scott’s High Tea … c. 2004?) I brought a poem …. that was written “Dorothy Parker style” called “High Tea 101” …. and was formatted like a school assignment…
