    After getting back from the pub tonight, I realised I really don't want to go to University Brass Band in the morning, only due to the fact its in the morning and that is quite a lot of effort for a student. Trouble is we are all expected to turn up unless we are dead!
    Have any of the tMPers been in this sort of situaiton and managed to get out of it? If so what was your excuse???
    I'll promise not to use them........ :twisted:

    My dog choked on my nipple and I had to take it to the vet...

    ps. Is it only trombones that have nipples or do other instruments have them too??

    You've changed your religion and your having to answer the call to Mecca at this time.

    Flooded house, having to stop in for a plumber.

    Slipped and hit head in the shower, just came too and now your off to the docs/hosp.

    England were playing last night and even though they didn't win I drank too much beer and now am really hung over!

    :wink: :lol: 8)

    A broken instrument was usually my excuse. Except it was usually true as well!! Poor wee baritone!!

    Jokes about being surrounded by t*ts are becoming very tempting, but I won't.... (only joking! :lol: :lol: :lol: )

    'Sorry, can't make it tonight. Clashes with the Badger Folding Society AGM'

    'Someody's stapled my lips together. What do you mean 'Well how can you talk, then'? Well he hasn't done it yet, but he says he's about to. What do you mean 'It'll improve your embouchure'???

    'Can't come tonight. I've swallowed my tuning slide'

    "I've used up all my sick days, so I'm calling in dead"

    If i remember rightly the only way to get out of uni band was to die. probably not the best option! Oh well Becky!hope you had lots of always! :D

    Or indeed: 'Band's been making me ill, but I feel fantastic now, so sorry I can't come tonight. I'm too well to make it!'

    Student (Brazilian/guitarist) walked into one of my classes some 20 minites after it had started. I gave him the usual hard stare and waited for an apology/explanation.

    "Ay am no layte" quoth he, "Ay 'ave been making lurve"

    Seems reasonable.

    Me thinks we are getting somewhere along the right lines!!

    Glad you don't want me to die, lucky for some that they don't have to go to uni band anymore!! Wouldn't be much of a problem, but it isn't right having to get up in the morning, especially if you've been out the night before!!! :(

    I'd have retorted 'Male, female or animal?'

    Ha ha, and to think I nearly quit uni band at Christmas ... the only reasons I didn't ...

    1) There's pretty much no-one left to replace me
    2) I'd get shouted at

    You see? Oh yeah ...

    3) The pieces are vaguely interesting right now

    you could always try the one they have offered, "sorry, I cant make the practice this morning as a result of my sudden death"
