1 my eye bags are particularly offensive this morning.
2 i have coffee breath and dropped my toothbrush in the toilet.
3 my cat peed in my purse, de-activating my car lock, and i can't get in my car.
4 my children are becoming enslaved to the establishment and i need to free them
from the puritanical expectations of organized education, and i don't want to go to work.
5 i'm going to be late anyway.
6 how will i ever chisel my body into a sparkling statue of Greek Goddess perfection
if i can't find time for 5 Minute Abs?
7 i have a hangnail. ouch.
8 if i call my husband right now, i bet he'll come home to get some.
9 the phone is ringing.
10 my real life doesn't involve group urination.
i don't want to go to work today
