LOL- Yes I can- But not today- I have a luncheon for one of my grants. Thanks for making me smile!

Oh yeah, I'm feeling number 5 right about now. Need more sleep. How about to work on a WIP?

Happy Friday!
Holly Ruggiero said…
Number 5 was me yesterday. I love the number1reason!

Dog swallowed the car keys? Okay, I'm going to have to hear more about this one!
Carol Kilgore said…
Summer - Enjoy the luncheon.

Miranda - Another good reason.

Holly - Sometimes we have to catch up.

Linda - Can't tell :)
Joanne said…
After the winter we had in New England, ANY sunny day is a reason to play hooky :)

Happy Friday ...
Mason Canyon said…
The warmer weather is always a good reason to play hooky (at least once a week). :) Have a great weekend.

Thoughts in Progress
Talli Roland said…
Yeah baby! I love number 1!

Hope you have a good weekend!
LR said…
Sometimes it's great to just do nothing at all! :)

Have a nice weekend.
Maryann Miller said…
Good ones, Carol. Numbers 8, 8, 4 and 1 worked for me earlier this week. Our son was visiting so we went to a movie. The weather has been so pretty I have been out a lot planting new annuals and tending rose bushes, etc. Now I need to make up for slacking for three days.

Here's a pathetic writer one to add to the list:
"Because you'd rather be writing."
a lil cousin once buried our car keys in beach sand. She was evil, luckily she's all grown up now.
Lola Sharp said…
I'm still waiting on the beautiful weather. It's FINALLY sunny today, but a high of 42 degrees. *pouts* Now they're saying snow on Sunday night. Evil, I tell you.

#5 sounds rather nice right now. :)

Happy weekend, Carol!

Carol Kilgore said…
Joanne - I hear you!

Mason - I know. I have to make myself stay inside. Mostly - LOL.

Talli - Me, too :)

LR - I'm more a Type A - unless I'm reading.

Maryann - Very nice. I know you had fun.
Carol Kilgore said…
Lydia - For sure!

Joanna - LOL! But not funny at the time.

Lola - Brr. We're supposed to hit 90 tomorrow.
Arlee Bird said…
I usually feel too guilty to play hooky, but sleep sounds good. I'm getting sleepy thinking about it.

We're still in winter-mode here, but soon it will be number 4.
Clarissa Draper said…
Great reasons to play hooky. Now I just need ten ways to get me out of the guilt I feel afterward. Have a great weekend.
Carol Kilgore said…
Arlee - Rest up. April will be busy!

The Happy Whisk - Winter needs to take a hike.

Clarissa - Hooky is a guilt-free activity. Or it should be :)
RaShelle said…
Great top ten!!! Love them all - especially shopping. I want/need new clothes. Yes, I do. =D
The Happy Whisk said…
I'm okay with it still being here but I am also really looking forward to getting outside and playing in my veg and flower garden. Gotta get a new table and chairs for the yard, too, this year.

Do you like to write outside? Or read outside? I love it. Ah ... the good life.

Have a great weekend. Supper's nearly done and the house smells yummy.
Carol Kilgore said…
RaShelle - I need clothes, too. Today I bought a pair of capris, a pair of shorts, and a t-shirt. Writers' clothes - LOL.

The Happy Whisk - I like to read outside a lot. I like to write there, too, but not much writing gets done. I'm much more productive inside with fewer distractions. Getting ready to start dinner here - tacos!
Laura Eno said…
The poor dog! :) Sleep sounds good to me right now. Hope you're having a great weekend!
Anonymous said…
These are all great reasons. I usually do #5.

Have a great weekend.
Carol Kilgore said…
Laura - They eat homework :) Hope you get some sleep.

Medeia - I think a lot of people here sleep more than I do.
I'm going for the sleep one!!!!


I can find all kinds of reasons to play hooky :)
Manzanita said…
Had to check in on your top ten. Now, "Dog swallowing car keys is definitely a winner. Have to remember that.
Hope you're having a Sunny Sunday.
Carol Kilgore said…
Words Crafter - Me, too :)

Manzanita - I figured you'd get that one! Cloudy today and warm. We're having a bbq.
Anonymous said…
Lol! I've missed your top tens. :) I can definitely go for number one, although the beach (in a few months) sounds nice. Hope you had a great weekend!
Carol Kilgore said…
Welcome back, Kimberly! Hope all is well.
Almost missed this! New movie is my number one reason.
Carol Kilgore said…
Alex - I'm not surprised :)
