A letter to Kendell's Teacher
Friday, November 03, 2006

Dear Ms. First Year Fifth Grade Teacher,

Thank you for sending home Kendell's reading log yesterday. I have signed it and sent it back today as you requested.

However, you might notice that the reading log is, shall we say, a bit worse for wear. Evidently Buddy, our dog, was a bit peeved at being left out of the whole, reading for homework, loop and took some interest in Kendells log yesterday.

In the ensuing struggle between boy and dog over the homework, Buddy some how ingested some of it. Evidently reading does not agree with dogs and Buddy promptly gave it back to us, albeit in pieces. Please note that we did wipe it up as much as possible.

Kendell himself showed great ingenuity in taping together the remains of the reading log and using an iron to try and get rid of the wrinkles (that would be the burn marks you see).

I try to instill in Kendell the importance of turning in his homework despite all odds and was able to fill out what was readable and sign it for you.

I'm sure the smell of vomit will fade in time.

On the off chance that you feel the log is not readable as is, could you possibly send a new log home with Kendell?

I would greatly appreciate it and promise to keep it away from the dog, the iron, and any adhesive materials.

I don't know about this. Even with your embellishments on your son's behalf, it's still a tired old excuse. You're just putting a very artistic twist on it with the iron marks and nasty smells. When you get right down to it, my dog ate my homework just doesn't cut it. LOL Nice try tho.

I love that the dog ate your kid's homework - and, looking at your profile that Practical Magic is one of your favourite movies. It's a PMS classic for me!!
Thanks for stopping by my site today.

Hehe Sometimes it happens! Had a cat in high school that pissed on two of my school books. My punishment... couldn't exchange the book and there was about 2 months of school left. Yeah, I lost the book.

I never really believed dogs ate homework until it happened to us!

Smell of vomit...ha ha ha! I'd love to give Zed's English teacher homework that smells like dog vomit. She's an idiot.

OH MY LORD! Funniest letter ever and now as I finish reading this the post about Kendall sending the note to the teacher pretending to be you makes so much more sense.
