Thank God it's Fraydey

My ex-wife - as an inner-city school teacher - has long been a supplier of much of my blog fodder here on "Mental Poo."

Some of which has resulted in various cartoons involving The Incredible Hulk.

You're welcome.

I was at work when I received this text message from her:

"Sick note from a parent. Thought u would get a laugh."

She attached this:


I was confused on why, exactly, Marlon no go fraydey so I texted my ex-wife back where she informed me that 'fraydey' = 'Friday.'

Oh.

Gotta give the woman bonus points, though, for getting all the letters in 'because' correct - even though they were slightly out of order.

Credit where credit is due, is my motto.

Happy Fraydey, everyone.

Either that or the kid needs to learn how to spell and forge his mom's signature a bit more convincingly. I had it down by fifth grade.

Oh. My. Lord. This is a reflection of our society as a whole, not just our schools.

This just makes me sad.

At least there was a "good morning".

Christy said...

It's Freydey, Freydey, gotta get down on Freydey!

Jeannie said...

I have many frayed days myself. And I no go.

Dorn said...

You know the kids not forging this himself, otherwise with a great teacher like your wife this would be grammatically correct.

It doesn't REALLY say what Marlon 'no go' to.

We don't even know why, all we know is that someone named Beacuse is sick.

The best part is when they scribbled over their initial attempt at writing 'Thank You'. Obviously they caught a spelling mistake that they felt was unacceptable.

They wanted the note to be perfect.

Will her student write me a note too? I need to get the fuck out of here.

Opto-Mom said...

I noticed that, even though it's more than 7 months into the school year, the mother apparently doesn't know the name of her child's teacher. Unless, of course, your ex-wife's name is actually "Teacher."

I know my daughter's teacher's first and last names, e-mail, and cell number; and we are friends on facebook.

I think I'm just gonna start calling you, "Blogger."

totally stealing that and calling out sick when i get frayed on tequila.

Eva Gallant said...

Maybe she meant her daughter was not going to join in the "fray" and spelled that wrong. I'm sure that Friday is fray day in elementary school!

meleah rebeccah said...

too funny. I love Fraydeys!

Knight said...

I'm still concerned. Did the parent or student write this? Can your ex even tell?

Al Penwasser said...

Wasn't Fraydey a character in The Lord of the Rings?

Kage said...

Brooke Amanda said...

I'm actually impressed his guardian (cause you KNOW he's not living with his real mommma) had the foresight to even write a note.

I don't think it's the kid that needs to go to school...

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

This makes me want to cry.

Pat said...

Sometimes I have a fraydey, too. Luckily they don't happen too often!

Sandra said...

I just have to commend you and your ex on sharing these kind of experiences. Nothing says "great relationship between exes" like free blog fodder.
