Why You Should Always Check Your Kids’ Homework

A friend sent me this. Just hilarious!


Here’s the note the teacher received the next day.

Dear Mrs. Jones,

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

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.

Porthos Gets Manly

Porthos came out of his bedtime shower with his hair slickly combed, and one thick tuft sticking straight up out of his head, like a carrot-top. “Wow, your hair looks cool,” I said, suppressing my laughter. He looked very pleased with his creation.

Some minutes later, I noticed the anti-gravity hair showed no sign of collapse.

“Did you use water for your hair?” I asked. “No, I used the purple gel,” said Porthos, evidently proud of his manly act.

It probably wasn’t the best reaction but I laughed out loud. The thought of Porthos diligently coiffing himself with Pilgrim Dad’s hair gel – just before bedtime – was a bit too much to take.

“That’s great,” I said, when I could finally speak. “But next time, do it in the daytime, ok?”

At bedtime, as I kissed him goodnight on the forehead, he said, “Don’t suck up the gel, Mummy!”
