(“My Top Three Excuses” contest. 150-word limit.)
1. I want to come but my mom says if I do, I’ll be grounded for a week.
2. I want to come and my mom is ok with it, but my dad says if I do, he’ll beat me like a drum.
3. I want to come and my mom and dad are ok with it, but my jealous sister Gwen says if I do, she’ll let Brian kiss her on the lips. This must not happen! Brian cheated to win my favorite marble, The Peach, plus he’s a moron and a toad.
