If you watched "This Is Us" Tuesday night, there's a good chance you woke up crying Wednesday morning.
And if you need a little more time to deal with the emotional episode of the timeline-hopping drama, don't worry — star Milo Ventimiglia has you covered.
Before the tearjerker even aired, Ventimiglia took to Twitter with a letter to make sure fans wouldn't have to bother with any day-after responsibilities.
"Dear Sir/Madame, Please excuse (blank) from work/school today, Wednesday," he wrote. “Last night was a very emotional episode of 'This Is Us.'"
The actor signed the note as Papa Pearson, as a nod to his character Jack Pearson, aka father of Randall (Sterling K. Brown).
