Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

Always Check Your Child's Homework

After first receiving a picture drawn by one of her students,
here's the note 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.


Mrs. Smith"

NG, I'm glad you stopped over here. As the title says, "Odds and Ends." ;-)
