Social media is loving the creative email a mom from Austin sent to her daughter’s teacher to say the girl would be missing a day of school for an upcoming Taylor Swift concert. Instead of a boring note, Karen Vladeck channeled her inner Swiftie, filling the email with the singer’s song titles and lyrics. She shared it on Twitter, where it’s been a huge hit.
The subject line, “It’s Me, Hi, I’m the Problem, It’s Me,” sets the tone and the email reads:
Dear Reader [Ms. Parks],
I’m writing to let you know that Maddie won’t be in school on 4/24 because she is going to the Taylor Swift concert in Houston the night before. I hope missing school doesn’t ruin her otherwise stellar Reputation, but she begged me to go and maybe I Should Have Said No but I didn’t want to be Mean. So It Goes …
Anyway, I hope this doesn’t leave any Bad Blood between you and Maddie and that things for the rest of the year are not Treacherous. I know I Did Something Bad and I promise this will be The Last Time she has an unexcused absence before the Cruel Summer starts.
Forever & Always,
The mom says at first, it was only going to be one sentence long, but she got into it and kept coming up with titles to use. Fortunately, her daughter’s first grade teacher, Ms. Parks, thought the email was hilarious, responding in all caps, “THIS MADE MY ENTIRE DAY.”
