Another email to a professor

Dr. Steele teaches Food Microbiology. This week we learned about microbes that cause food poisoning. I got food poisoning this same week, and sent him this email on Saturday:

Dr. Steele,

I think I should get a little extra credit for an out-of-class activity I'm doing right now. I'm experiencing a case of food poisoning.

I'm guessing it's foodborne intoxication, most likely Staphylococcus aureus, because it was quick onset, with mostly upper digestive tract symptoms, i.e. vomiting.

Sorry to hear of your extracurricular experiences. Isn’t it great to be educated in your illnesses!
