Melissa has a future in Chicago politics. She wanted to run for school Historian. I was thrilled. She was showing an interest in something. She had to prepare a speech, to be given next week, AND make a few posters to put in the hallways at school. I told her to make sketches of what she wanted on her posters. After 45 minutes of concentrated drawing, she showed me her sketch.... I told her she could in no way, shape or form, put the following on her posters:
MELISSA for HISTORIAN
Vote for me, or watch your back.
I have since slept with one eye open.
