Excuses, Excuses

in General

blog365 …. mmmfffp! Who’s stupid idea was it? It might be the ugly brain child of this fricken fine fellow (sorry Kamen Lee).

I was going to skip it today. I started to think up excuses:

* The dog ate my homework laptop. I just knew you wouldn’t buy that one. You know with the dog being a shitzu and all.

* I have to attend the opening of my garage door. Haahahah … Ok, so that’s not all that funny, AND I don’t have a garage and, therefore, no garage door. I could hear you all chanting, “liar, liar, pants on fire!”.

* My uncle escaped again! This is actually fairly close to the truth, AND if my family didn’t read this blog, I might just be tempted to tell you the whole sordid tale. Then again, I do tend to have that lazy streak … the one that keeps me from getting too long winded or in depth. Well, because that would take a little work and even a little work is sometimes too much work for me … it’s a LONG story.

* I have to study for a blood test. Really, I was going to go for a blood tests tomorrow at 6 a.m., but I am not supposed to eat or drink for 12 hours prior. My lazy streak kicked in right around supper time, we didn’t eat until 7’ish … I decided to wait for Monday, 7 a.m. is just too late. Tomorrow’s a busy day.

As you can see, I am a pathetic ‘excuse maker upper’. It’s easier to just blog!

What’s the best (or worse) excuse you’ve ever heard? MommyKnows you know

    Roo can’t stay in her own bed because:

    1. “I love you so much and I miss you!”
    2. “I just want to kiss my baby brother.”

    I worked with a guy who called in to work one day and joked that he had “anal glaucoma”. He said he couldn’t see his arse coming in to work that day.

    I think it is your garage door opening! It is a good one. Cindi

    Well your dog might not be able to eat a laptop but mine sure could! Those dogs eat everything.. most recently the Dora Pirate Ship that we bought for the girls last year… the gosh darn thing is huge, heavy and apparently not as un-destroyable as I had thought!

    Well the best excuse is the truest one… you need some me time! I use that all the time!

    One of my elementary students once gave me the excuse that his parents wouldn’t let him “stay up that late” in order to do his homework! Umm, sure.

  • Deb March 28, 2008, 8:34 pm

    ha! mine is completely uncreative, but i was gone all week with my kids (visiting my mom). dh phoned me and said how nice and quiet it was – no kids, internet wasn’t working so he read a bit, no meals to prepare (yes, i made him some food (basically he didn’t do anything). I come home and the three things i ask dh to do in my absence were not touched. his excuse? too busy. aaargh!

  • Blood Test Man December 15, 2009, 12:26 pm

    eeeeek. That’s pretty early for a blood test! I just got one done the other morning as well. Can’t wait for the day I can stop getting these things. I guess it comes with old age :(. Love the site btw.
