You can even make a list of handouts entertaining, Verna! Great meter, rhyme, and word choices. Even tho there is no plot per se, I still wanted to keep reading.
Amanda Brogan04/28/11
Brilliant and fun! I think I laughed the most at "Caesar’s Funeral’s Oration." :)

Congrats for your win on this hodgepodge of awesomeness!

SO completely FUN. I smiled the whole way through. Still smiling! Love the format you used, too. Just one looong list. You rock, Verna! :)
Congrats, dear friend. <3

Oh I love this! You have such a delightful sense of humor. Plus you have rhythm and can rhyme! Congratulations on the well-deserved EC.
Mariane Holbrook04/28/11
Oh Verna! What a delightful, clever entry! I can't wait to share it with my sister and my friend who is also a poet. Your English teacher experience gave you the enviable position of making this sort of thing informative but also just plain fun. I can only imagine what you were like in the classroom! I'm sure no one fell asleep or was bored with a teacher who could produce something this entertaining and good!
Nancy Bucca04/28/11
This is really something. Quite a hodgepodge, truly!
Rita Garcia04/29/11

I had to read this out loud. It seemed to accelerate as I went along. I began smiling. It's a teacher's list, for sure!
Congratulations, Verna!
