I need believable excuses as to why I don't have to head out in 10 below zero weather to attend wm's quarterly staffing. I have this staffing memorized - the only good thing is the donuts (which I don't need) & foster mum's company (the woman is a delight!). A car not starting in this weather won't be believable - c'mon this is MN; everyone has jumper cables. The fact that my head feels as though Mt. St. Helen's is about to explode inside isn't going to fly either. Maybe, just maybe, explaining that I shouldn't be driving while taking narcotic pain killers might make a difference. Explaining that I lost my balance on the way out to the garage, fell , & my lips hit & froze to one of the poles on my bird feeder might be stretching things a bit - what do you think? Either way, it's quite the picture. Being honest & saying I've heard it all before - many many times , I'm out of ideas & that I'd really rather be home getting rest before kt gets home from school just isn't going to fly. So, ladies - don't let me down. I want fun, but believable ideas from you. I need a good laugh this morning.
