I learned at a very early age that excuses do nothing to aid you. They only cause confusion and chaos and hurt feelings. I choose not to make excuses when I can avoid it. To me, an excuse for something is a little too close to being dishonest. If there is something that you cannot or will not do, it is always best if you just be honest and clear about what you cannot do and why it cannot be done. If you make excuses about it, if you talk around the idea or the request, it can backfire upon you. It can make you seem to be dishonest or it can undo all of the hard work you have done to get others to believe in you.

Of course, I could talk for hours about the excuses the family or the boyos have made to me or to the Coven to avoid answering our questions. Thankfully, Surreal is a sensible witch and answers all of our questions quite honestly and without a thought for how Daemon the family might react to us finally achieving this knowledge that we have been seeking.

However, it is Papa who often times comes up with the most creative and far-fetched excuses...

You have a favorite one I've used?
