Melania’s Coat

J. A. Allen


Let me open by saying I am Canadian. Some people might argue I don’t have the right to comment on American politics. As a human, I believe I do: especially because last night while watching US news, my heart broke. It actually ached in my chest. This morning it still does.

A couple of years ago, I was separated from my middle son at Walmart. He was eight. I was rushed and assumed he was walking behind me with his two brothers. It wasn’t until I came to the checkout I realized he wasn’t. We were separated less than five minutes before my name was called to the service desk.

Dear President (again)

Dear President Donald Trump,

 

I hear you need a new Nation Security Adviser — oh I meant Attorney General! You’re in luck! I would be a great Attorney General.

 

Actually, I really don’t know much about what Attorney General (much less Nation Security Adviser) does. I was a copywriter in advertising. But like you, I watch TV news and regular shows. I didn’t watch The Apprentice (sorry). However, I’ve never gotten fired from my real job, so that’s a plus don’t you think?

 

I didn’t vote for you, but unlike Michael Flynn and Jeff Sessions, I’ve never lied. Well, I once stole a candy bar when I was 9 years old. But someone saw what I did (it was my Dad) so I had to go back to the store and tell the manager what I did. She was mad at me, but she just warned me to never do it again. Thankfully, I’ve learned my lesson!

 

Anyway, let me know when I can start the job. Thanks!

 

Sincerely,

Maureen Twomey
