(Here's the reply the teacher received the following day)

Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic
I work at a Home and Garden shop and I told my daughter how hectic
it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every
single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that
several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn't
show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last
snow shovel we had at the shop. From now on I will remember to check her
homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.


Mrs Smith
