What? Have you no sense of humor?
How about the email I sent, also last night, asking my fellow yard duty "moms" to step in for me today?
"I cannot do my before-school shift tomorrow, Wednesday, January 19, on the lower yard. Can anyone find it within the depths of their hearts (and their busy schedules) to cover me?
I'd have my husband do it, but ever since he got the capital murder conviction, the school district has said he can't cover for me. Sure, convicted murderers can't do yard duty but we'll put in DEATH TRAPS and call them 'playgrounds.'"
I know. I know. I really should have my own TV show.
