    No Homework Excuses

    I lost it fighting this kid who you said you weren't the best teacher in the school.

    I was mugged on the way to school and the mugger took everything I had.

    Our puppy toilet trained on it.

    Some aliens from outer space borrowed it so they could study how the human brain worked.

    I put it in a safe, but lost the combination.

    I loaned it to a friend, but he suddenly moved away.

    Our furnace stopped working and we had to burn it to stop ourselves from freezing.

    I left it in my shirt and my mother put it in the washing machine.

    I didn't do it because I didn't want to add to your already heavy workload.

              My little sister ate it. 
     
    Funny, huh?  These excuses might get a laugh, but they won't help your grade.  There aren't many things more frustrating than doing your work and then not being able to find it.
    Organization is a skill that most of us have to learn.  With a little time and diligence, you will never have to worry about using any of the silly excuses above.
