Hey, we all need them.
“I’d be writing but…
- “That chocolate chip skillet cookie just had to be made. And eaten.” [My wife did the baking; I helped her with the eating.]
- “Geeeez, that Hallmark movie’s Nielsen Ratings need me.”
- “Right now, I’m getting more concrete results from cleaning the garage than rewriting that last chapter.”
- “I just have to call my friend back east, even though she hasn’t acknowledged my existence in the last eighteen and a half months.”
Okay, there you go. But you can only use them once. And then it’s back to work.
Tell me your favorites you’ve used [overused?] through the years.
