Hey, we all need them.

How about…

“I’d be writing but…

skillet cookie

  • “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.

Need a ‘few’ others?


Tell me your favorites you’ve used [overused?] through the years.

Methinks that skillet chocolate chip cookie is a (very) valid excuse – especially in this season of sharing? (hint, hint!) 🤗✨🍪✨🤗

    Yep, I’ll send one to your multiverse address. I hear that space and time work differently there.
