If David After The Dentist taught us anything, it's that getting work done on your teeth can amount to hilarity. Let's bee real, it's hard resisiting the urge to click record when we find our loved ones emerge from their surgery with nice and high kick in their step from heavy pain medication.
University of Nebraska student Abby Jo Hemele's experience went beyond just an interaction with family and friends while recovering from her wisdom tooth extraction this month, when she suddenly became determined to secure an extension on her philosophy paper. Under the heavy influence of hydrocodone, she wrote up an email to her TA, Kevin Patton. And she actually clicked send.
The message her TA received deserves a special place in the Hall of Embarrassment Fame
This email is packed with so many gems. To start, Abby Jo calls Kevin "my dude." Then claims she won't be "normal" again until she eats some Thanksgiving turkey. Just to seal the deal she throws in the phonetic spelling of her last name in case he was wondering (he wasn't). But her earnest promise to end awkward class silences by answering all his questions was the best part. Wait, no — the "love you" is even funnier. This email just gets better and better.
Abby clearly has a sense of humor about the whole thing because she shared the message on Twitter. The question is, did Kevin? Did he fail her, or report her for trying to bribe him with Expo markers?
