One day last week, I wrote a letter to a local lawmaker about something near & dear to my heart:  animal rights. 

Madame Mommy Dearest had actually given me the woman’s information & pointed out that she has a history of voting in favor of ethical treatment when it comes to animal-related legislation. MMD said she was going to write her own letter, but knows I’m better at that sort of thing, and was afraid that she’d be too wordy if she got started.

I don’t know—my letter is pretty wordy.  But powerful. 

And I told her:  “I forgot what a good writer I am when my undies are in a bunch.”
