  4. I forgot my anniversary and need to do something special for my wife
  5. Mercury is in retrograde
  6. Today is the Holy Day (requires good knowledge of a real or fake religion)
  7. My mommy said I’m not allowed to see you today
  8. I sprained my wrist and my ego while playing Guitar Hero

  11. I’ve been exposed to gamma radiation and am worried I might turn into the Hulk
