And the award for the most creative excuse of the week goes to........

Me: "Aaron, go clean out your closet."
Aaron: "I can't."
Me: "And why can't you?"
Aaron: ....................
Me: ????
Aaron: "Frogs. There are frogs in my closet."
Me: "Frogs?"
Aaron: "Yes, frogs, and they're jumping around."
Me: ?????
Aaron: "They're jumping around all over my closet.........and....um..... they're poison dart frogs."
Me: "Poison dart frogs?"
Aaron: "Yes, I can't clean out my closet because there are poison dart frogs hopping around in my closet, but don't go and look because they will shoot poisoned darts at you and the poison will go into your body and make your arm fall off."
Me: "Aaron!"
Aaron: "What mom."
Me: "Go clean out your closet!"

Um... yeah... that's why I can't clean out my closet either. Poison dart frogs. :)

I had to read this very carefully because for a minute I was worried that there were poison fart dogs in his closet, which would really keep me out of it, too.

He is seriously spending too much time with Max. Either that or he secretly taught Max all he knows.

Either way - funny stuff!

I have to say that you've got a real storyteller on your hands. Get him to start writing those down. You could make millions!
