A Day in the Life

 hi professr sorry for miss your class i went late to school , but i add ur class already but i think i really behind in your class . because i dont have the book, im going to buy it monday morning and , i dont know if i can made some make up for wat i miss monday.. thank you 

I received this email this week from someone named azk3r.  I shook my head, rolled my eyeballs and wrote him back with the usual encouragements and admonitions, and asked him to sign his real name in the future.  Then in order to recharge my Teaching Is Fun brain cells, I forwarded it to my friend and colleague Judy, but with this, first:

deer mis cann,
i work reel hard in yer class but i still dont get it.  i am a reel nice kid and hop that mssing yer class and not havin the book wont be a problem.  thank you

student with no name

I about had a heart attack when I received this in my email box:

whadya mean his nam iz ask3r call him ask3r in ur class on monday
ur frend

Oh no! I thought.  I accidentally sent it BACK to him and one of his friends is taking me to task.  Ack! Ack!

But then I checked out the email address and started laughing.  
Judy had sent a reply.

My Teaching Is Fun brain cells are fully recharged now.

Poor kid. Poor you! At least he took the time to write an excuse. Looks like you've got your work cut out for you.
