I want to be like mommy!

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

After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:

Dear Ms. Harris,

I want to be very clear on my child’s illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. 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. Davis

The above is not original to me (oh yeah, I did change the names of the Ms. and Mrs., that's my contribution to this post ). However, since I just saw it for the first time and liked it, I thought I'd post it. The version that introduced me to it you'll find here. The blog author there expands it slightly (and for the better, I think), including a change of locale from Home Depot to Wal-Mart.


  1. It is a funny one isn't it? I really like it. Glad you liked it too.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. Sandee,

    Thank you so much for your comment. I often turn to lighter blogs (and by that I certainly do NOT mean lesser blogs) for some relief from the daily grind. Yours is one of the best!

    I make my own feeble attempts at comedy from time to time, but I can't say they're very worthy. Bloggers such as yourself inspire through laughter. Don't stop. Keep up the good(funny)work.
