Excuses, excuses

"Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday."

This excuse is part of a collection of excuses at Strange Places garnered from the Office of Educational Assessment at the University of Washington. My favorite:
"Carlos was absent yesterday because he was playing football. He was hurt in the growing part."
Obviously, some parents need to go back to English composition 101.

I also like 101 reasons why fingers are better (than what -- or who, you can guess).

Okay, I'm feeling silly today. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.
