 My sense of humor may be slightly hindered by my present circumstances

Maybe it is the extreme lack of sleep. Perhaps the sickness which has taken so much out of me. Perhaps the weakness due to having no appetite for 3 days...but when my friend Angel sent this email to me today I could not stop laughing.
Subject: Always check your children's homework
(Here's the reply the teacher received the following 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. Sincerely, Mrs. Smith

Okay, Wendi, I feel like a MORON!
I had no idea what the picture was suppose to be of. I never would have thought "pole dancing!"
Then I read the "note" and thought HUH?! Pole dancing...it looked to me like she was collecting money from her children who probebly said naughty words...or giving money out because they were all begging for allowance.
Oh MAN do I feel blonde at the moment...maybe I'm getting sick!
Hope you get some good rest:)

A friend sent me this earlier this week and I laughed for quite a while after being mortified of the thought of my kids actually doing this.
