Sarah's List of Excuses For Not Doing Your Homework
I was not always the best student, very often I didn't do my homework and I was running out of excuses so Evelyn (hi!) and I started to make up more excuses. Now days we do our homework most of the time but it always helps to have this list. Some of these excuses work. Some don't. See for yourself!! (Don't get into too much trouble)
WARNING: If any teacher gets hold of this list or sees this list then you will have to do your homework for the rest of your school years so be VERY careful. Do not leave this list in classrooms, near parents or on school computers or anywhere they would look. Each excuse can be used once, maybe twice on each teacher.
