My daughters are four, so they are full of excuses (and stories about zombie seahorses, which they told to my friend Kelly as we were ramping up for the most awesome library Skype visit EVAR). And last night, I was telling my husband about this annoying situation, the details of which aren't particularly important. Someone was supposed to do something, and they didn't, and they are full of excuses. And before you start wondering if it's you, IT ISN'T. :)
So he says, "What kind of excuses? The kind the girls use when they don't want to go to bed?" And I thought, THAT'S BRILLIANT! I now have an excuse for all occasions!
I'm sorry, morgage people. I would have paid you, but I'M NOT TIRED!!!!
I'm sorry, officer. I know I was speeding, but I NEEDED THE MUSIC ON!!!!
I'm sorry, editor. I know I owed you a book today, but SHE WON'T GET OUT OF MY BED!!!!
I'm sorry, American Idol. I know it upset you when I said all your contestants look like Muppets, but I NEED PANTS!!!!
That's right. One of my daughters woke up and refused to go back to sleep one night because she wanted pants. It's funny now. At 2 AM, my sense of humor is somewhat impaired.
What's the worst excuse you've ever heard?
