Sunday Morning Smile
There was a high-school English teacher who was well known for being a fair but hard grader. One day after
receiving a B minus on his theme paper, a student in hopes of bettering his grade and in the spirit of the Valentine

day, he received in return a valentine from the teacher. It read: “Thank you… but it’s still BE MINE-US.!”
