Dear Parents,
This is just a reminder that the Arch Bishop will be coming to our school tomorrow. We are asking that the students uniforms look especially nice for tomorrow. Please make sure the uniforms are clean, no grass or dirt stains.

This is an actual e-mail that I just recieved from my childrens' school.
First thought: do they have the right to do that? Are they really that dirty that this needed to be sent?

Second thought: is the Arch Bishop really going to notice a few dirty kids in a group of 850 or care for that matter? They are kids, right?

Third thought: oh crap! I guess I'll have to scrub knees, stain treat, iron, spit and shine so my kids don't stand out as the dirty bunch!

Tena, did you get some help on the sidebar issue? I talked to a friend that uses the blogger platform and I was hoping they would come talk to you. Anyways, it isnt like the Pope is coming right?

My daughter used to go to a private Catholic school, and we'd get letters like this all of the time too. I think I felt a very similar progression of thought, and we always did some extra scrubbing and cleaning!

VERY funny (the last part!)

Cleanliness is next to Godliness, right?
