Nothing new here. Other than taking the cat to the Vet for her checkup and shots. She'll forgive me eventually.

I've played the blame game. It's his fault. It's her fault. But, those things I have control over are my responsibility. The rest is not my business. I'll take care of my business.

No headache means better use of the English language, and fewer mistakes.

Correction: Prior post should have read "I don't have ESPN. I didn't watch the game. Thank you."

The trolley broke down in front of me. There was a ton of traffic behind me and I couldn't back up. So I had to wait until SEPTA fixed the trolley.
I was stuck there for two hours!!!

From reading the prior posts, I see that I'm going to need to up my game here.

"No, I didn't get the E-mail, text, phone message, or social media posts. I was in the bathroom for an extended time."

Best one I ever used was when I was in the military.

I was just over 1 hour late for class when I slipped in.

During a break, my instructor call me over to his desk and asked me why I was late.

I told him "Chief, it was the oddest thing. Someone left the showers running and the drains couldn't handle all the water.

When the head flooded,the water got up to the level of the power outlets and shorted out the electricity causing my alarm hot to go off.

He looked at me, smiled and said that because that was one of the most original excuses, he wasn't going to write me up.

Trying to not smoke cigarettes. Irritable. Anxious. That's just thinking about it. Haven't stopped yet.
