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?

About mike Jacka

Mike lives in Phoenix, Arizona and has two claims to fame. The first is that he was born the day Disneyland opened. So, yes, he is old. The second is that he is the funniest internal auditor in the profession of internal auditing. Yes, a very low bar. Yes, this is akin to being the sanest person in the asylum. So why not combine those two great achievements? Why not combine that love for Disneyland with a slightly offbeat sense of humor? I guess we'll all find out.
