I Got Mail: 1st Grade Drawing

Most of the “funny” email I get isn’t that funny. This was an exception. The Evil Twins’ dad sent it along…

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

The teacher graded it and the child brought it home.

She returned to school the next day with the following note:

Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be perfectly clear on my child's homework illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money.

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


  1. Hiya FAR,

    This is a very funny email. I could imagine the mother's horror when she saw the drawing. :)

    We're getting snow today and tonight. I have a feeling there might be some coming your way.

    Stay warm and take care,


  2. Hey FM! It can be easy to misinterpret that drawing, for sure…

    NWS says we're getting less than an inch of snow, but Daughter Dearest heard we could get six inches. I'm going with the lower estimate, given local TV's penchant for hyping snow forecasts.


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
