Did your parents ever have to write a note to a school teacher asking that you be excused from class? My dear, sweet wife bought me a devotional book from author and humorist, Ken Davis, that offered some really funny notes from parents.
My son is under a doctor's care and should not take physical education today. Please execute him.
Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick and I had her shot.
Megan could not come to school today because she has been bothered by very close veins.
And my favorite:
Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it was Monday, we thought it was Sunday.
