      Dear Students~
      You should be so lucky! No high school experience has ever been that interesting. But I feel your longing and my compassion compels ME to impart a valuable secret. Go Small.
      And, if you dare, go MINUSCULE. That’s where all the best mind bending stuff is hidden.
      You’re welcome.

    I am Twisty the Raccoon and I wonder, Pearl, if we have met in a past life?

    Native american Opposum story:
    “VERY little food there was for Deer one dry season. He became thin and weak. One day he met ’Possum. Deer at once exclaimed, “Why, ’Possum, how fat you are! How do you keep so fat when I cannot find enough to eat?”

    ’Possum said, “I live on persimmons. They are very large this year, so I have all I want to eat.”

    “How do you get the persimmons?” asked Deer. “They grow so high!”

    “That is easy,” said ’Possum. “I go to the top of a high hill. Then I run down and strike a persimmon tree so hard with my head that all the ripe persimmons drop on the ground. Then I sit there and eat them.”

    “That is easily done,” said Deer. “I will try it. Now watch me.”

    ’Possum waited. Deer went to the top of a nearby hill. He ran down and struck the tree with his head.

    ’Possum watched him, laughing. He opened his mouth so wide while he laughed that he stretched it. That is why ’Possum has such a large mouth.”
