About eleven years ago, when I was 13 ('cause I'm only 24!), I bought a fabulous dress at one of my favorite stores...the clearance Dillard's. It was a fabulous deal and I was so excited to wear it to church.
Now, this was back in the "olden days" when I could actually wear almost all the clothes in my closet, unlike today, when I can wear almost nothing in my closet. This is an important part to the story that I tell.
As I was getting ready for church, I was anticipating how great I was going to look in my new dress. All the compliment I would receive. The success that would be mine, just from wearing this new dress.
As I was putting the dress on, I noticed an odd accessory that I hadn't seen the day before, when I purchased the dress.
It was one of those dang security tags with ink in it!
I couldn't wear the new and magical dress to church!
Whatever was I to do?
I surely couldn't remove the tag, since my beautiful dress would be ruined.
Could I pull off wearing the dress, hoping no one would notice the tag? No. Prob'ly not.
So, even though I had a massive closet of clothes--all appropriate for church--I decided my best bet was to skip church that week.
And so I did. And that is about the lamest excuse for ditching church I have ever heard.
What's your lamest excuse? Or do you go to church even when you have a truly justified reason to stay home?
