Remember when we all pined for plans, desperate to get dressed up to go anywhere? Remember when we said we'd never turn down an invite again? Well, that was months ago. Now that we've thrown ourselves back into the routine of painful stiletto-stomping, Uber surges, and split-check dinners, a precious night in with Netflix and cheap takeout actually sounds amazing. The social fatigue, like Zoom fatigue, is real.

If you, like us, have been overbooked and too busy lately, but don't want to seem ungrateful to be getting back into the swing of things, simply offer up one of these glam last-minute excuses that sound way better than "Sorry, I just really need to devour a pizza alone in sweatpants tonight."
