I did my best to get your papers back this week.
I tried really hard.
You only had to write one--I had to grade 40.
I have other classes you know.
I was sick.
My kid was sick.
My dog was sick.
My computer was down.
I forgot you’d want them back.
My other class didn’t mind my turning them back late.
Yes, those excuses sound just as lame when the teacher gives them as when the students give them. I can’t use these excuses to excuse myself from grading student papers, but student papers can provide a nifty excuse for not blogging.
See, I was going somewhere; it just took a bit.
