Cute teaching tale!
As she walked into the squad room, Grammar Smith glanced over at Dis Connect’s desk and saw Henrietta Hyphen slumped in a chair.
Henrietta was a “frequent flyer” at the Dept. of English Language Offenses.
“What have you done this time?” Grammar asked as she ambled up to Dis’s desk.
“I haven’t done anything!” Henrietta snapped. “I’m here filing a complaint against my cousin, En Dash.”
Grammar raised an eyebrow. Dis nodded his confirmation.
“What’s the problem?” Grammar asked.
“En has always been jealous of me, and now she’s stolen my identity! She keeps popping up in phrases where I should be. She’s stealing my thunder!” Henrietta fumed.
Dis showed Grammar the file:
Exhibit A: the 25 – year – old lawyer
Exhibit B: The antique — book collector pounded upon the first edition.
Exhibit C: She could be a full – or part – time worker.
