As much as we all love what we are doing - there does come a time in each dancer's life when things just don't go right and we need to "explain" it. Here is a list that I compiled through the years that I know works:<P>The mirror gained weight overnight.<P>The dog ate my shoes (cat, ignuana, can be substituted).<P>These feet don't belong to me.<P>My clock was upside down - that's why I am late to class.<P>Which is my right foot if I'm looking in the mirror?<P>I forgot to sew the ribbons on my shoes - but that's ok - because I forgot my shoes.<BR>..............................<P>What are you tried and true "reasons" for those special occasions when the world is against you?

There was not only an analysis of the reflective properties (she's so technical) of mirrors but also the analysis of comparison BETWEEN mirrors. <P>The trick was to get THAT OTHER GIRL to stand in front of the "fat" mirror........and ruin her day.........

More - time tested excuses - <P>My tights won't let me plie'.<P>I can't jump because those meatballs I ate for lunch are plopping around in my stomach.<P>I am not concentrating because the pianist is making faces at me.<P>I'm falling down because the floor is hard, slick, sticky, bumpy, smooth, dark, light (pick one - your choice).<P>I can't dance beause my shoes are too - hard, soft, narrow, wide, long, short, wrong color pink, new, old. (another multiple choice)<P>I missed rehearsal yesterday because I was busy baking you a birthday cake - which the dog ate.<P>

When I was learning trapeze and my teacher told me off for failing to remember a sequence of moves, I explained that the moves were in my other leotard. (This excuse didn't work though!)

Marginally off subject perhaps, but what the heck, it's never stopped me in the past. <BR>When I was a table tennis coach one of my charges, Andrew, was drawn against a rather impressive player in a tournament. Before the game one of my colleagues said to our lad, 'You know Andrew, your opponent does have some obvious weaknesses.' Andrew responded at once, 'Yes, but I don't have any obvious strengths!'
