Dear Roberte Teacher

Sincerrely
Sally

You realize that people can only do what they are capable of and accept what the universe has given you.

I know, Joy. I'm just going for a laugh here, and some of that rueful English-teacher irony...

to me, the crucial bit isn't getting a letter like that, it's whether that letter's an improvement over the letter they were capable of writing on the first day of my class. There's a successfully executed coordinating conjunction-ified compound sentence in the middle of that mess!
