So I have a friend, who I don’t write to often enough, who informed me that the 18th of July was “International Make Up A Really Good Reason For Not Writing Day”.
I’m so good at this that it has taken me 3 days to write my reasons…
I was kidnapped by pirates.
Dr Who has taken me to a parallel universe where pen and paper have never existed.
I slipped into a rabbit hole, shrank, had a tea party, fought a dragon, played a croquet game, danced with a lobster, baby sat a pig, built a card house and by the time I got home I was so tired I fell asleep.
My children used up all my writing implements creating their own neo-expressionist art work on their bedroom wall. They fed all my paper to the DVD player. All I have left is my lipstick….you can’t take that away from me!
My pencils and pens have gone on strike. They staged a walk out early this morning and are currently congregated on my front lawn. They are holding placards that read “Writing stink! Save our ink!” and “Pencils shout! Don’t rub us out!”
