How To: Perfect Your Powder Flu

by Powderhound Cat March 1 2012 0 Comments

Today was one of my favorite kinds of days - a mid-week powder day. 

I know for some of you, there is a little four letter word that might get in the way of experiencing epic powder turns: WORK.

So, I talked to some of my friends and came up with a little list of excuses you can use to get the day off when Mother Nature calls. Which she certainly will, I have a feeling it's going to be a good month.

*I have fallen on some ice, and I can't get up.

*Today is the funeral for my pet goldfish.

*The pipes in my house froze.

*Colonoscopy.

*I'm getting a wart removed.

*My electric blanket caught fire.

*NASA keeps calling me for advice.

*I need to bail my friend out of jail.

*Jury duty!

*I got stuck in the blood pressure sleeve at Wal Mart.

*I burned myself getting dinner out of the microwave last night.

*My grandma is sick. No, the other one, not the same one as last week...

If all else fails: I'm calling in blind: I just can't seem myself coming in to work today!

Remember, the more creative the better. At some offices you are one of a dozen trying to get fresh turns. What's the best excuse you've ever heard, or used? Don't worry, I won't tell your boss.

*Let it snow*
