Thanks so much for browsing in on such short notice. I know we’re in the midst of The TwinfaMaui Saga, but dire circumstances have prompted this brief interruption. I don’t have much time, so I’ll get right to the point.
Just a few days ago, scientists at the Twinfamy Research Labs unearthed a lost and long-forgotten relic from the elaborate network of catacombs beneath the Pseudonymous residence: the (tw)infamous Dead Draft Scrolls. For those who don’t know, this highly sought-after artifact is a hard drive containing sacred ancient writings of the Pseudonymous people, including drafts of compositions that really ought to be New York Times Bestsellers by now (and surely would be had yours truly realized how much free time I had before becoming a parent).
Among these legendary texts is a collection of war stories from my career as a middle school English teacher, a stint that ended in a blaze of glory as I was summoned to stay-at-home greatness. The writings are dated 5 B. T. (5 years Before Twins), placing them around the year 2006.
As you can imagine, there was much rejoicing in the Twinfamy camp, as my Prodigal Brainchildren had been found. However, it is with a heavy heart that I report one of these pieces is already missing.
Which is the reason I’ve called you all here.
I won’t name any names, but according to the Central Twintelligence Agency (CTA), the story is alleged to be featured as a guest post today on James Hudyma’s blog EduDad. You may remember James as the non-Sasquatch creator of The Twinfamy Theme song.
The thought of James stealing my work was puzzling at first, but it made complete sense. His blog often shares hilarious anecdotes about his own classroom mishaps (which are very worth checking out), so clearly his motive was to include my work because it was a perfect fit. Putting two and two together to make a tutu, I also realized I’d excitedly sent the post to him with my full blessing to publish it as a guest post.
Your mission, O Loyal Operatives–should you choose to accept it–is to uncover this post on EduDad and enjoy the hell out it. The CTA speculates it is hysterical in nature and being held in this location:

I loved the post at EduDad, and I also thoroughly enjoyed your intro to it here! Clever, as always!
Thanks Mrs. Firepants! Looks like you’re off for summer now, so congratulations on making it through the school year.
I’ve gotta start documenting all the crazy stuff that happens or that kids say in my classroom, too! Middle school is crazy…
It sure is. I stopped writing these down after my first year and really wish I’d kept it up. There was some form of hilarity every day.
