Check your child's homework

 I received this in an email and it gave me chuckle.

"Dear Mrs. Jones, 

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic

I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. 
Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. 
From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

Mrs. Smith

That's precious!

It also reminds me when my son announced he was bringing me to Show-n-Tell that week since I lived through the Civil War!

That is so funny!!! I acutally laughed out loud!! Did she write this after her daughter handed it in? That's one for your scrapbook.

I saved, and wrote down what some of the kids say when they come into the school clinic too.

Classic! Surely the best opening line to a parental letter that has ever been written?!

Surprisingly, I had never seen that email. That's wonderful! Yes, some of those kid drawings are hysterically funny.
