Lust requires little effort.
Love requires great effort.
Trust requires
the greatest effort of all.

Teacher Said ... Mother Said ... June 17, 1984 ... Columbus, Ohio

________________________________________________________________________________________________

"Hello."

"Am I speaking with the mother
  of Lois Murphy?"

"Yes you are."

"I am Mrs. Schinn, her ceramics teacher."

"And I am Clara Murphy, her mother."

"I am calling because your daughter
 was absent from school
 for the entire week."

"That's not quite true, Mrs. Schinn."

"Yes it is true: I can show you my rollbook,
  Mrs. Murphy."

"Please call me Clara or Murphy, Mrs. Schinn."

"Whatever. I repeat: You're daughter has been
  absent from school for the entire week."

"My daughter was not absent from school.
  She was only absent from your class,
  Mrs. Schinn, with the approval
  of the Principal of Sherman Powell 
  Junior High School."

"That is nonsense. She would have said
  something to me about it."

"Ms. Seamster decided not to tell you
  because of your special project.
  The Principal did not want to disrupt
  your annual Salute to Father's Day.
  
"Less than two weeks ago, 
  Lois' father commit suicide   
  in a Cleveland hotel room
  and we were able to keep it secret
  from everyone in her school
  except the Principal."

"If that's true then please
  accept my sincere apology,
  Mrs. Murphy."

"Well, I wish it weren't true,
  Mrs. Schinn and I also 
  sincerely wish I could
  accept your apology."

California Lost Opportunity To Be ... The First PINOCCHIO State

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Given the opportunity to have
the most powerful man
in the most powerful state
admit to being a puppeteer
[when ALL elected officials 
are psychological masters
of the art], the primary voters
of the Golden State gave
the only political candidate
who truthfully labelled himself
A PUPPETEER
less votes than your family's
combined fingers and toes
⚠️  ⚠️  ⚠️
Please note:
The state of California 
did have the decency to list 
the gubernatioral Puppeteer 
first on the ballot.
God Bless the Alphabet!
