While BLOG HOPPIN' yesterday, I saw this on my pal Angie's blog.
(and she actually found it from another blog....Blessed by 3 Miracles.)

A little backstory on the actual photo:
When asked to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up, second-grader "Sarah" turned in the lovely drawing shown below.

Now what comes to mind when you look at it?
You are probably thinking Momma works at the
"Shakey Shakey" place

Needless to say, the teacher was a bit surprised -- Mrs. Smith had always seemed like such a conservative woman. So she sent a note home to the girl's mother asking for clarification as to the picture's meaning.

Mom's response:
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

ROFL.....This actually reminds me of the time my son went to church telling his sunday school teacher that I made him drink beer.

Yep, BEER!

Only it wasn't BEER but rather ROOT BEER.

That is hilarious! Back in the day when I worked at a preschool, the stories some kids would tell us really had us looking at their parents in a different way. Sadly, I am sure that at least some of them WERE true!
