Letter: Trump is not the only one who can declare emergencies

I opened the refrigerator today and discovered no beer, so I declared a national emergency. I called on my Cabinet officials (wife and dog) to find out why sans suds? They paid me no never mind.

I ventured outside and discovered a wind chill of five below, so I declared a national emergency. I beckoned Don Paul and Kevin O’ Connell (Retired? Never!) to find out what became of global warming. They paid me no never mind.

I completed my 1040 last night and discovered a rather sizable debit, so I declared a national emergency. I summoned my two accounting amigos (amigos? English please!) to locate my tax cut. They paid me no never mind.

I peered into the back yard and discovered my neighbor relieving himself on the bushes so I declared a national emergency. I immediately mustered up my mason (he’s no Perry). By golly, he had that wall up by noon.
