How to defend yourself against fresh fruit

Quick, can you guess why this stix was so late? Yes, it's because I'm editing poetry textbooks for fifth graders. Today I got the weirdest feeling when I edited the unit on Lawrence Ferlinghetti's Constantly Risking Absurdity (#15), and remembered the day Ms. Hauser, my favoritest-ever English teacher, taught my fifth grade class this poem. I was so proud that I knew who Charlie Chaplin was.

Ms. Margery Hauser, that is. I mention her full name in case she ever goes on a Web search for her name. Hi, Ms. Hauser! You were totally my favorite! You gave us The Most Dangerous Game to read, that was badass.
