Little Phantasma Update

Just when the work day was reaching the pinnacle of slowness, my friend Beth Fisher emailed me with an update on Little Phantasma.

Subject: upcoming quiz
Hello parents,

We are currently moving through the human body systems.  Our next quiz will be on Wednesday, December 9th.  It will cover both the respiratory and excretory systems.  Supplemental review materials have been posted on the eBoard.

Permission slips have been coming in for the S B Nature Center in school field trip.  If your child has not yet returned theirs, please make sure that payment in the amount of $5.50 is included and is in the form of a check made out to Main Middle School.  The presentation will be during science class on January 11th.  This will mark the beginning of our study of the animal kingdom.  The permission slip has been posted on the eBoard in the event your child has misplaced theirs.

Thank you for your support of our blood drive.  If you would like to come in as a walk in on December 16th, they will do their best to accommodate you.

Warm regards, B. Fisher
Phantasma just had her quiz on the digestive system on Tuesday and had spent the Thanksgiving break writing out her index card in that super-tiny print that only non-existent children can do. Since she's my daughter (and a creation of my imagination) I know that she aced that quiz. That being said, she shouldn't have any problem with this upcoming quiz, even if there is no index card support.

I'm going to have to look into this permission slip thing though. I don't remember seeing one which can only mean that she's forging my signature. Again.

Damn kids.


  1. You know, you could always email the teacher to let her know that she has the wrong email address . . .

  2. I thought about it, but I want to know how Phantasma does over the school year.

    Besides, what else was I going to blog about today?

  3. I still think you should email back and completely pretend to be a concerned parent. Imagine the hilarity that would ensue.

  4. Awesome. You should volunteer to go on the trip. This way you can meet your child.

    Maybe you should also start asking the teacher questions, like
    "Could you please explain why my child got number 5 wrong on her quiz."

    Or "My daughter came home saying there was an incident in class, I would like to hear your side of the story before I beat the shit out of my kid."

    Teachers love that sort of stuff. :-)

  5. For those of you who don't know - Erinn is a school teacher.

    And I got a new email today, so I'll be blogging about Phantasma in a bit.
