No Excuses!!

After dropping my youngest off at school, which by the way didn’t go so well. “I’m tired. I didn’t get enough rest. My tummy hurts. I don’t feel good.” I’ve heard it all. Anyway, it got me thinking of the crazy excuses and things I would do to get out of going to school. Specifically this one time when my cousin came up with this “brilliant” idea to warm our foreheads over the fire on the stove to make it appear as though we had fever. (Are you getting a mental picture yet) ok, so I was like, “you go first”, you know just in case things went horribly wrong then I know not to follow suit. (Now imagine this) my “brilliant” cousin is standing over the stove, face right smack above the burner, the genius then turns it on, (I have to tell you that it’s the old stove that clicks for a few seconds before it this fire just shoots up out of no where) you with me? Ok, so, poof, big fire right in his face, he looks up and his eyebrows are seared and smell like burnt hair. I just bust up laughing and he’s wondering if his forehead is warm enough to pass for a fever. He had no idea and I didn’t say anything. (I know, pretty messed up). There was no way I was going next!! We ran back to the room, jumped in bed and when grandma came to get us he told her he wasn’t feeling well. She did the whole hand on forehead and noticed a burnt smell then she got closer and noticed his seared eyebrows. Man, this lady just started yelling and screaming telling him she knows what he did because his eyebrows were burnt. The look on his face was priceless. His punishment? Going to school with burnt eyebrows. Hahaha. I remember it like it was yesterday. What are some if the things you did to get out of going to School? I would love to hear it.



  1. That came later in life. It was called cutting out of class.


  2. Hahaha. Love this. I was the good girl. Always went to school. No excuses.


    • Nice!! Glad to hear it. I hated school and the times I did go was just to hang out with friends. I should have been good. Too late!! Haha
