Sometimes, it is amazing what kids can come up with. Their flair for the dramatic, combined with a healthy imagination, leaves them with endless possibilities. So, with this in mind, you have to see the note a boy left his mom after missing the school bus one day. It is nothing short of a hilarious stroke of genius. His execution and argument are pretty solid. Kids are really something else.
In a Twitter post shared by his sister Sarah, we can see the note he wrote to his mom. In addition to a letter explaining the situation, he also included a pro and con list.
never forget the time my brother missed the bus and wrote my mom this note pic.twitter.com/ETqbzW7adN— sarah ♡ (@sarahhollidayyy) June 4, 2019
"As your son, I regret to inform you that I've missed my means of public transportation," the note begins. You can already tell this is going to be pretty hilarious. This kid is clearly a kid who has a way with words. And a lot of personality.
The next line is really one of the best parts of the whole letter. "I know you must be on a roller coaster of emotions right now but rest assured, I've decided to stay home. Seriously, where does this kid come up with these things? "a roller coaster of emotions?" Pure brilliance!
But the pros and cons list is the best. The first pro is that it was his "first day home this quarter," which is always good. It means he's not taking too many days off. It's the second con that makes the whole list better. "You have to call the school and tell them I've got polio," he writes!! Polio!! Not a cold, no something like strep throat, polio! The imagination!
According to a story from a local FOX news station, Sarah explains that the letter is from 2017. She told told them her mom allowed her little brother to stay home.
Even though he may have gone about it in a questionable way, it's good for kids to take a mental health day sometimes. As long as they're not missing an excessive amount of school, a day isn't so bad. School can be grueling for kids, and giving them a day to mentally regroup can only benefit them. One day off isn't going to ruin their chances at academic success, it might actually make it better.
We can definitely learn a lesson from this young boy on how to have a sense of humor. Maybe he can write us a sick note for work.
