The Peerless Man From Peers

Mors Kochanski Certificate

This certificate came in the mail yesterday. I am at once honored, flattered and humbled. To have your work recognized by your peers is a great feeling. To have your work recognized by your mentor is something else entirely. It says on the certificate that I am recognized as a peer, but in my opinion this man doesn’t have any peers. Through his work, he shaped survival and wilderness skills training into a professional field. For that we all owe him a debt of gratitude.

Honored and humbled, sir, but by no means your peer.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
