"One of Twenty-Three Student Emails in My Inbox"
Really, unedited does it best:
I do not know if you check the pager, but I have had a really awful three weeks. Without much detail, I think you would understand that I have missed a quiz due to misreading the due date as the 31st contributing much of my recent confusion to the stressor of 1: mother broken hip 2: Perp who attempted to kill me released from prison and calling to harass me, now waiting for him to be rearrested, etc. My mind has been literally gone...
On a happier note, a publisher has requested I submit a collection of 50 pieces of my poetry for review!! Bonus...
If you could see it in your heart to open the quiz for me I would be forever greatful and might even send you a sample of my work! (signed of course)
