At my house we apparently have a competition in the works between 10-year-old Brandon and 14-year-old Heather that I wasn't aware of, "Who Can Give The Best Reason Why They Can't Go To School".  

Heather tried this morning with the excuse of, "I didn't get enough sleep."  

That only received 2 out of 5 stars with me and a reply of, "That is weak! Get up!"

Then there was Brandon who thought the Royalty Excuse would work, "Mom needs to bring me my pants out of the dryer."

I gave him 4.5 stars out of 5 for that one. But I still replied with, "I'm sorry your Highness that your mother wasn't quickly dispatched to fetch the royal britches....GET YOUR TAIL OUT OF BED!"

Here are some of the excuses that you shared.
