Double Checking your Child's Homework!!!


OK, it's very very cold (at least in the midwest and northeast!!!) and it's that dismal time of year for many. So, my friend Teresa just sent me the funniest email message I've had lately. Normally, my friends send some odd stuff - as I'm sure your friends do too.... like dogs playing piano, people embarrassing themselves in strange ways, stupid jokes... and the odd right wing nonsense (you know who you are!). But, this latest one, involving the image above, was just to funny - and, all parents could relate. My oldest son, who is in first grade, has already narrowly embarrassed us unintentionally by relating information that we just assumed was private!!! So, when I saw this funny message, I just had to laugh laugh laugh.... and, if you're like me - well, I just needed it today! Thanks Teresa!

The mother is writing a note to the teacher because the teacher has asked about the above image that her daughter drew. I'm pretty darn sure none of it is real (check out the depiction of the dollar bills!).... but heck... who cares. The tag line to the above image reads like this:

Dear Mrs Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer - as you suggest. I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the big blizzard hit. I told her we sold out of every single shovel we had, but that I had found one in the back. The customers were fighting over who should get it. Her picture does not show me dancing around a pole! It's supposed to depict me selling the last shovel we had at Home Depot! From now on I will check her homework more closely!
Sincerely,
Mrs Smith
