My name is Glenn Millar. The Millar’s Tale was something that began 30 years ago when I was assigned to write a weekly humor column for the Palo Verde High School newspaper in Tucson, AZ. Jan Watson, one of the finest teachers I ever had, (I hope Jan sees this at some point,) told me she had the perfect name and had me read The Miller’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer. It’s the second of the Canterbury Tales. It starts with wit and ends with one of the characters getting a red hot poker shoved up their . . . um . . . backside. You have to read it to appreciate it. Geoffrey was brilliant. Though perhaps Ms. Watson was trying to tell me something. Enjoy.
