My dog ate your homework

Scenario: bagel in school briefcase left on the floor. Puppy eats briefcase, lesson plans, tests, quizzes, homework and the bagel. Family members take pictures and laugh. At least they took pictures. This will make a great scrapbook page when I finish making up all the lesson plans that she ate.
Thankfully my students laughed and took the hundreds and grades gifts I handed out with a grateful smile. I then gave tests on Thursday. The class average was not very good. One of the students handed me a bagel and asked me to leave it in my briefcase with the tests. He was hoping that we would have a reenactment of the bagel incident, which is how the class refers to it now. I am the only teacher in the world that can say my dog ate your homework.
