Funny Bone Monday

Thank you all, bloggy friends, for your interest and concern about my ickies. My tummy has recovered, but I've been on a headache bender for several days. If history is correct, today should be the last day for that. Here's hoping.

What have I done? When I started Funnybone Monday, I vaguely considered that it would be a long standing feature on the blog. You know, in passing. But it happens every Monday. Every single one! Did I do that? The jury's still out on whether or not I like that.

Whether or not I like it, it's still going to happen every Monday. So prepare yourself for a little classroom humor today.

Excuse Notes from Parents

The following is a partial list of actual written excuses given to teachers in the Albequerque public school system by parents of students:

  • Dear School: Please excuse John from being absent on Jan. 28,29,30, 31,32, and also 33.

  • Please excuse Dianne from being absent yesterday. She was in bed with gramps.

  • Please excuse Johnnie for being. It was his father's fault.

  • John has been absent because he had two teeth taken off his face.

  • Excuse Gloria. She has been under the doctor.

  • Lillie was absent from school yesterday because she had a going over.

  • My son is under the doctor's care and should not take fizical ed. Please execute him.

  • Carlos was absent yesterday because he was playing football. He was hit in the growing part.

  • My daughter was absent yesterday because she was tired. She spent this weekend with the Marines.

  • Please excuse Joyce from P.E. for a few days. Yesterday she fell off a tree and misplaced her hip.

  • Maryann was absent Dec. 11-16, because she had a fever, sore throat, headache, and upset stomach. Her sister was also sick, fever and sore throat, her brother had a low-grade fever. There must be the flu going around, her father even got hot last night.

  • Please excuse Lupe. She is having problems with her ovals.

  • Please excuse Pedro from being absent yesterday. He had diah, diahoah, dyah, the sh*ts.

And because I loves me some Tim Hawkins, as well as because I was a homeschool mom for so very long:


Happy Monday! Happy MLK Day! Back to sleep for me!

Until I write again ...

I love those excuses. I'm thinking I may write some like that for my own kids next time. The ones that can fully appreciate them, of course. :)

Go to sleep! I'm looking forward to a well rested and un-sickened Flea!

Love 'em. I kept trying to pick a favorite but couldn't though being in bed with gramps and having her shot were both serious contenders...

Hope you're feeling 100% soon.

Hoping you're already feeling better. You're amazing that you can write and be sick at the same time. I'd just be in bed.
