Whether you're lazy, or just don't have your shit together, lateness is always a hard thing to mask. Next time you're rushing in for a coffee date, 20 minutes after the settled meeting time, come prepared with a list of too-detailed-to-be-lies, just-believable-enough-to-be-true fibs.

All things that happen to me at least once a week - for real, and for fake.

I'm sorry, but no one argues with a bloody nose. No one.
