The teacher and parent comments were added by whoever stole the pic from Chelsea’s My Space page. And, while most versions merely refer to the child as “my daughter,” the text of some dubs her “my daughter, Sarah.” Also, while the overwhelming majority of versions we’ve examined have the mother working at Home Depot and place the incident “last week before the blizzard hit,” one has that harried parent working at Bunnings (a Home Depot equivalent in Australia and and speaks of “how hectic it was last week after the floods hit.” An additional reflection of how this tale localizes to suit its audience appears in the text lettered in childish script below the drawing: “I want to be like mommy” sometimes appears as “I want to be like mummy.” The letter accompanying the drawing sometimes takes a different form, as this version (also from January 2009) demonstrates: After the above was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note from her Mommy: Dear Ms.

As the artist’s mother told us, the picture was drawn by her seventeen-year-old daughter, and it was intended to represent a stripper (the Home Depot commentary and the faux letter to the teacher were added to it by others after it was posted on My Space): old; the drawing was made in 2007). It was then stolen and the teacher and parent comments added.
Yes, it was meant to be a stripper or exotic dancer, although I am not one nor have I ever been!Blendr: A flirting app used to meet new people through GPS location services.You can send messages, photos, videos, rate the hotness of other users, etc. Kik Messenger: An instant messaging app with over 100 million users that allows users to exchange videos, pics and sketches.Is it just us, or could these two be the next Rory and Lorelai?
