The dog ate my homework

Yes, I know my assignment was due today and I'm sorry it's not ready....but I can explain.

I spent weeks preparing it. The research was burdensome, with volumes of footnotes,  references, and attributions.

Eloquent does not begin to describe the prose that flowed on the pages like warm honey. Some first readers wept as they read.

The words rang true as the bell of freedom. You would have been enlightened -- your life forever changed......if my dog had not eaten my post tonight.

She's more vicious that she looks in this picture


  1. hahahaha boy if you would only know / see what my little dog does.
    I have two girls and they are so competitive.
    But they look like little angels dont they ? hahahahaha

  2. The dog ate your post. So the dog consumed a computer? I think not, boyfren.


  3. All he had to do was sit on the keyboard and tap the delete, didn't he? Right?

    My brother Bill had the best excuse ever: His horse ate his homework and part of the book. He held the book out to the teacher and, sure enough, a horse-sized bite.

    Do you have a horse?

  4. I can almost believe it when I see what my cat does when lying on my keybooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooard. ;)

  6. Junebug stole my comment.

  7. wouldn't believe how many times I heard that one before when I was teaching literature and composition! Some were joking, but some were not! You would think that no one would try that one, but they did...sad, but true!
