Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.
Twain's viewpoint on the German language was written a long time ago. He has been one of my favorite writers since I was a child and this is one of his funnier pieces. It is only surpassed by his story about crossing the Platte River near Julesburg CO where I currently live.
He tells a story about a buffalo climbing a tree after a hunter that makes most people laugh out loud.
I advocate reading more Twain for the good of your digestive and respiratory system!
