Fibbing Friday — Excuses

Di (aka Pensitivity101) hosts Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. For this week’s Fibbing Friday, Di has given us ten scenarios and would like us to make up excuses/fibs for not complying or owning up either as kids or adults.

1. Meeting the prospective in-laws for the first time. Sorry, I can’t. I need to stay home and rearrange my sock drawer.
2. Going to your partner’s firm’s social evening where you know it will be talking shop all night. My book club is meeting that night.
3. Not going to school on a test day. I have a cold and I’m contagious.
4. Broken a window while playing outside. A bird flew into the window and broke it.
5. Having gone shopping, spent all the money, but not bought anything on the list. The store was out of almost everything on the list, so I improvised.
6. Damaged the car. I came out of the office and notice a big dent in the fender. The SOB who hit the car didn’t leave a note.
7. Late for work. There was a major accident on the 101 freeway this morning. Traffic was backed up for miles.
8. Forgotten to do your homework. The damn dog ate my homework…again!
9. Insurance claim for damage to property. The fire was started by a lightning strike.
10. Ruined an expensive piece of clothing. I set the temperature on the washer to cold. The setting on the washing machine must be broken.

    Ruined an expensive piece of clothing.

    This is something my mother did every time she came to visit me when I lived at a different address from the one I’m in now. I always told her not to do any of my laundry. She ignored this begging and followed up with, “I’m sorry.”
