Excuse needed
« on: October 12, 2005, 06:04:56 PM »
Anyone who can get me into an unbreakable commitment to be somewhere on the evening of Wednesday, October 26, will earn my undying devotion and, possibly, a large financial reward. My father in law is getting married that day and, frankly, I'd rather sever my ears and lips with shards of dirty glass.

This is a tough one.

My original idea that you have to come to my apartment to play Heroclix and Mutants and Masterminds or else I'll kill myself may not be enough.

Perhaps you can arrange for me and Spriggan to break your kneecaps?

Or I could talk to some of the Social Workers at Wasatch Mental Health and maybe have you committed to the Psych Ward for a week?

Too bad stacer isn't in town for the 26th or you could use her as an excuse since technically she is a possible future employer.

Um...take the 5th?

Or find out what the menu is and claim to be deathly allergic to something they are serving.

Although if the person you are trying to fool is your wife, that may not work.

You could fake your death and then when you show back up after the wedding is over you can claim it was your evil twin that died and you have been locked in a cellar somewhere in Southern Utah for the past 2 weeks.

Come to Ari's baptism in Montréal on the 29th.

Leave a little early to, umm . . . prepare.

Course the easy way out will be just to claim that one of your kids is sick and needs to stay home. This could involve offering several bribes.

I'm sure you could convince Audry to play sick and not let Dawn in on the scam for at least a few hours.

You know, if you DID cut off your ears and lips with dirty glass, you'd probably get out of it.

Yes but that's the easy way out.  Fell doesn't do anything unless it's dramatic, heck he even enters a room with fan-fair.

Cutting off your ear is pretty dramatic. Just ask Van Gogh's girlfriend.
