Funny from Daughter

Daughter was off school last Monday with a bug that has been doing the rounds.

I emailed her form teacher, cancelled her bus place and let her gym coach know because she’s having extra training for a competition on Sunday. On my way out of the house for my meeting, I said to Daughter – "which drama teacher is taking the after school activity? Can you write and let her know that you won’t be there as you’re off sick?" And with that I left.

This was the email that Daughter sent.

Names and addresses have been changed to protect the guilty.



I haven’t stopped laughing yet.

Did the teacher write back? So so funny...this will be keeping me laughing all day! Absolutely brilliant! All best to you all, Pacha

Bless her. Wouldn't we all have loved to write those same words when at school?

JJ Beattie said...

Spiral, I'm sure she'd be happy to!

Pacha, hello sweetie... I wept with laughter last night; and I've continued to chuckle all day today. The teacher wrote back saying 'Do you mean of? Or off? I hope you mean the latter.'

Debs, for us, what's particularly funny is that this is the child who isn't sick of school!

That is brilliant. I bet Ms Drama T had a good laugh, too.

so funny, it is like using google translating when doing your school work. Not ideal.
