"The Dog Ate My Work!"

Yes, I said "work," not homework.

Yesterday was sitting here just surfing the web and suddenly I noticed that my LAN connection was lost. I looked down to the floor and saw Peanut chewing the wires. She actually cut right through the network cable that connects me to the rest of the network we have in the house!

I laughed, looked at Ken and said "Um, how do I explain this on Monday morning when I can't work?" Do I say "The dog ate my work?"

Well, it wasn't such a big deal anyway. All Ken had to do was swap a couple of cables, essentially disabling my home computer from the network and reestablishing a connection for my work computer. Then we got a new cable at Staples this afternoon.

I just thought the whole scenario was funny and had to mention it.

It's a good thing, because as a teacher (my mother wouldn't let me have my notebook so that I couldn't practice---Oh, yeah. Just throw away the money! ), I've heard a lot of stories!

My cat ruined my homework once! I had the book sitting open ontop of the table then Hanzel decided to use it as a scratching post. Homework ripped to shreds.

Sincerely, Krystle.

Now THAT would be the hardest to believe out of all of them...Why would your mom not let you have your school notebook...I mean who'd believe that?

Jo, that is funny, only because you got it fixed!

Krystle...LOL
