You know the feeling. You’re running just a little bit (or a lotta bit) late, and you need to come up with a good excuse for your tardiness. Here are a few that might come in handy, and if they draw a few laughs, then all the better.
You are late because. . .
Your tummy was too rumbly.
It just needed some hunny.
You were too busy saving the world.
But don’t worry. We always knew we could call you, beep you, if we wanted to reach you.
You got stuck in a cave of wonders…
…for a few millennia. Whoops.
You forgot exactly where you were going.
You somehow arrived at 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.
You found a talking dog (no, really).
So obviously you had to stop and converse mostly about…
That’s also why you were late. Squirrel-spotting.
You are actually a toy, and a human just wouldn’t leave the room.
There’s nothing you could do except stay for another cup of tea.
You went through the wrong door.
And somehow ended up in Hawaii (not that you’re complaining).
Hakuna Matata is all you have to say.
No worries if you’re late.
You got marooned on an island.
And the rum is gone, of course.
You got lost in a bit of sidewalk chalk art.
You couldn’t turn down dancing penguins.
You pulled the wrong lever.
Why do you even have that lever?
So there you have it. Choose one or mix and match a couple, and you’ll have a fool-proof excuse for any future delays!
