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.
*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.
*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*
