Its Great To Be A Kid Again
Myself has a problem with this. As I have grown older, I've lost the exceptional talent I had for school note writing and signing my fathers name better than a currency counterfieter. Since I've never used any where near my allotted sick time, never been AWOL and never just stayed home because I felt like it, I found the rule slightly insane. Not to mention I'm almost 60 and a grandmother.
After much thought on the matter, I've decided that - should I need to provide this silly request, I will have two options available. One is, I will asked my Mother to write a note and sign it Donna's Mommy under her name. The other is I will prepare a letter pointing out my exceptional virtues (and age), explaining the illness and sign it GOD. I could leave an old sucker stuck to the paper, wrinkle it up and dirty it in a mud puddle before handing it in.
Perhaps this is a juvenile attitude but given the circumstances...
