It’s been quite a while since my last “You’ve Got To Be Kidding” post.  I want you to know that I’ve got a lot of really good excuses, and I was prepared to share each and every one of them with you.  However, this reminded me that we need to add a little Disney magic to all aspects of our lives.  So, instead, allow me to provide a list of Disney-inspired reasons for being late for anything.

  • I was waiting for Rivers of Light to premiere.
  • I’ve been working on my unsuccessful campaign to replace Bob Iger as Disney CEO.
  • My screensaver kept popping up with “Sorry, we’re closed to imagineer a brand new attraction.”
  • I was standing in line for the latest update to Disney Infinity.  What?  Never mind.
  • I had just ridden Small World and every time I sat at the keyboard all I could type was “All work and no play makes a small world after all, a world of laughter, a world of tears, a world of hope and a world of…”  ARGHHH!! There it goes again!
  • I was told I should remain in my vehicle.
  • I needed to do just one more update to my park in Disney Magic Kingdoms.
  • I was working on Chapter 36 of my soon-to-be-released book Why I Hate “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!” Before I Even See It.
  • I’ve been waiting by my mailbox for my one-time offer of a free membership to Club 33.
  • I was practicing for the Gumball Rally.
  • I was buying up annual passes before the price went up again.
  • I was trying out Pixar’s production approach – develop a concept, write, rewrite, rewrite, throw it out and start over, write, rewrite, rewrite, rewrite, rewrite, just do a sequel.
  • I was waiting to get into Trader Sam’s.
  • I didn’t manténgase alehado de las puertas
  • I just saw the new colors being used on Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and I’m too depressed to do anything.

And, with that, I promise to provide more consistent content in the future.  In fact, for my next piece I plan to…Wait!  Is that a Gravity Falls marathon?  I’ll be right back.  In the meantime, what are  your best Disney-related excuses?
