I am the master of excuses. legit. if you want to get out of something, i am your girl.
I am going to start sharing my most genius excuses for your getting out of work/dates/etc pleasure.
Please note: It is never OK to kill off a live family member. if you MUST resort to killing off someone, they MUST already be dead. morbid but true. respek.
The excuse of the day is the DELLEN.
A DELLEN is defined by the medical dictionary as:
A transient shallow depression in the cornea near the limbus which is caused by a local dehydration of the corneal stroma, leading to a compression of its lamellae. It can occur as a result of strabismus surgery, cataract surgery, swelling of the limbus (as in episcleritis or pterygium), rigid contact lens wear or senility.
A dellen is not life threatening, not so gross that you dont want to share the news, but serious enough that you MUST not attend your commitment.
This is what a dellen looks like:
Dellen can also be used as a verb.
Person A: What are you doing tonight?
Person B: UGH I have this date I REALLY dont want to go on.
Person A: DELLEN THAT!
Go forth, young fledglings! Dellen your life away!
