Finally, the final final finale

Hello again, fellow felines, canines, and human pets,

It's pretty hard to believe that it all comes down to one last item on the to-do list: The final final. The test will be online, which means the pet can stay at home this evening and have all of us help her. To be honest, though, I'm pretty sure I don't know the first thing about total physical response, suggestopedia, or the language experience approach.

The good news is that the pet did pass her last certification exam with flying colors, and wow, were those colors flying: 296 correct out of 300. (I personally think she was slacking as I know she could have done much better.) Nonetheless, she is now ESL certified, meaning she can teach English as a second language to others.

This final final is all that is left. I can't believe I helped her get to this moment. I'm tearing up right now just thinking of everything my pet has accomplished. It's really amazing to know that, in my own little way, I had a paw in it. From keeping her feet weighed down warm while she typed her atrociously long papers, to laying uncomfortably encouragingly on her chest while she tried to take chapter notes on the couch, or guarding her books when she forgot left them on the bed - I have been there. I'd better get a thank you card or something for all of this undying support...

We here at The Zeus Excuse would like to wish a huge congratulations to the entire MUSE cohort for doing such a terrific job! The past three years have made you family to all of us here. It has been a long road, but one that was worth traveling.

Give her some sugars from the Mack. Or do you give sugars? If not then just give her one of those dead mockingbirds you felines like to hunt down!
