(“My Top Three Excuses” contest. 150-word limit.)
1. Dear Anne. I can’t come to your party on Friday. I’m driving to Las Vegas to marry my new love. I hope you and Larry have a great time.
2. Dear Anne. You and Larry broke up? Since when? Do you have someone new or are you playing the field? Sorry I won’t be in town on Friday.
3. Dear Anne. Sorry I’ll miss your Friday party. Can I buy you a drink on Saturday?
