We all enjoy videos of hapless individuals wacked out of their minds on drugs after having their wisdom teeth removed. Whether they’re pining for bigger boobs, or they think they might be Kylie Jenner, it’s always an entertaining romp.

Abby Jo Hamele’s story starts off a little sadder than most, when she suddenly remembers her dead dog.

But it rapidly picks up when the 19-year-old somehow manages to both operate a computer and squeeze off an email to her philosophy TA/dude Kevin.

I believe that i relmebmer you said we, as us students, would be able to send you our papers for classss for you to look at over before we turn them in to cColin if we got them to you by the 22nd of Novermber.

I unfortmately got my wisdom teeth sliced outr and have not not been reacting very well to the surgeryy nor the medicatioon i were given/ so I do not thimk that I will be able to habe my paper finisherd by Tuesday at all.

Is tehere any way I would be able to send you my paper at any later date??? I wnt to do very good on this paper you know becayse i like to do well in my classes.

please sir I workled very hard and thouught that I would be abel to finish it on timme but my doctor said I will most likelly not be normal again until at least Thanksginvg turkey. If you say no then that is okay but i would be sad and i would reallyyyy lik e it if you said yes. Thank you Kevin, my dude.

Abby Jo Hamele (pronounced hah-mil-lee) (if you were wondering)

P.S. I will answer youpr questions in class forever so theere are not any more awkard silence. and i will buy you expo markers that work (even thougjh our tuition should pay for markers that work)

love you bye

Hamele seemed pretty embarrassed about the email (not so embarrassed that she didn’t tweet about it, but embarrassed nonetheless) but it turns out she didn’t need to worry. Not only was the assignment due after “Thanksginvg turkey” but Kevin, being a cool dude, seemed to understand.

Way to go Kev! No wonder Abby love you.
