This E-Mail Cracked Me Up

M has been out two days sick. Not at all typical of her. I just had to share this e-mail that I just got from her.

Hi Mrs.POd, its me m from your favorite period 9 class. Im really sorry I couldnt make it to your class. I didnt come to school and i cant make it in tomorrow either. I tryed my best to get out of bed, but i lost my voice! and i have the worst fever flu ever. I do not mind taking the test when i return. im very sorry Mrs.Pod im just so sick, if there is any homework or anything you will like me to do, i do not mind. As im writing thing email im laying on the couch on my sister laptop. I will probably see the doctor tomorrow, i'm feeling worst.Trust me i know better not to cut or miss a math test, which is a major major subject. I hope you have a wonderful mid winter recess.Bye

And my reply to her--I couldn't resist.

Don't worry, just take care of yourself and get better.

If you want, I can count the next test as two tests and make it twice as hard! (get it--two tests, twice!!--very mathematical)

I'm only kidding. Missing it won't hurt at all. I'll mail you a copy so you can do it for practice.

See you after the vacation.

That's in stark contrast to my students who fake being sick and have their mommies pick them up when they have a test scheduled that day.
