the homework assignment



A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment...



 
 

 
After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:  
   
Dear Ms. Davis, 
I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint.  I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel. 

Mrs. Harrington



psst!  I have a friend who blogs here... her name is Vodka mom. It's also the name of her blog.  Her blog is one of the funniest I've ever read! Anyway, she was nominated for the Top 50 Mommy Bloggers.  It would be really cool if you could check her out, read some of her stuff and go over to Babble and vote for her!  Last time I checked she was ranked #19!  Simply click here to go to the site.  Check out her blog!  You won't be sorry!!

Can't see the illustration for some reason, but I think I've seen that before in emails. Pretty funny.
