    No, I’d just tell my husband I didn’t want to go.  Easy peasy 🙂

    oh hell yes. I bet there are people out there who think I have AIDS or something because I’m “sick” so often. Tongue Out There are also people who think I travel a lot for work and often have to work late. White lies!

    @stuckinwonderland:  +1. I’m a really bad liar and I always get caught when I try. I remember I did make up an excuse for an event before and totally called myself out. Since then, if I don’t want to do something I just say so.

    ETA: unless it’s work. For work, I’m happy to be “sick” 😛 I don’t think calling in saying, “no, sorry, I don’t want to work today” would go over well.

    I get sick super easy so it’s not pretending it’s just me not showing up whenever I normally do while I’m sick.  I would never do that to my soon to be in-laws though because they are perfect.  My side is a different story.
