This story is for Baby Cougar Clause, who is officially in her late twenties today. Such an old lady! With love from Auntie Indy.
One day Baby Cougar’s high school English teacher just lost it. He was tired of staring at a roomful of slack and resentful faces. He looked at them all and said “I should just defenestrate you all. I’ll give an A to anyone who knows what that means.” And Baby Cougar, who was not the best student in English despite her inherent brilliance, strength, and beauty, and who, in fact, had just come perilously near failing an English quiz, raised her hand. She was the only one in the class who knew what the word meant.
This is why everyone should have at least one sarcastic auntie around to keep things interesting.
Who taught you what you know?
