. . . I've been told that I write novels for email messages. Perhaps this is the way to go. I'll try to make each entry, or Gemstone, a "precious" one. On mediocre days, all I might be able to produce is a "semi-precious" entry. In any case, an entry might be a "neat" Gemstone--something that is uniquely mine.

A Funny Funny

A dear friend from my Ladies Night Out group sent the following out in an email and made me laugh so hard. I'm sure you'll appreciate the humor as well.

Life Lesson: Always check your child's homework before it gets to school!

When asked to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up, 2nd grader Sarah Smith turned in the drawing shown below.  Sarah's teacher was surprised, because Mrs. Smith had always seemed like a conservative woman.  She sent a note asking for clarification as to the picture's meaning.


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 Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit.  I told her we sold out every single shovel we had.  Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it.  Sarah's picture does NOT 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
