With Deepest Regrets ● 10 Funny Cocktail Party Excuses

Have you ever been invited to a cocktail party and at the very last minute, you decided that you really didn't feel like going? We know that feeling all too well and asked some of our Facebook and Twitter peeps how they would address this matter and below are the most memorable responses we've received to date:
  1.  "We do not have a babysitter and I know you mentioned "adults" only, so have a drink or two for us."
  2. "Damn, we were dressed and ready to walk out the door (full makeup on according to them) and out of town guests showed up at our door, can you believe that?"
  3. "I had acupuncture done on my back today and I can't get out of bed."
  4. "You live wayyy too far and I cannot drive home alone after taking shots."
  5. "I was getting ready to come over, but while I was doing my makeup, I dropped the brush and when I bent over to pick it up, I hit my head on the edge of the sink and knocked myself out. I will post the knot on my forehead on Facebook."
  6. "I'm on a diet and really trying to behave; however, is your cute cousin going to be there?"
  7. "I was on my way, but would’ve been a half-hour late, and you know I hate being fashionably late."
  8. "Life is too short to waste time and I've been meaning to tell you that I really don't like you."
  9. "I am sorry, I forgot I had this HOT date on my calendar for tonight!  This might be the ONE!"
  10. "I can't find a dress and I refuse to be photographed in the same outfit twice."
Although, the responses provided above are humorous, you should always be honest and tell the host(ess) the truth.  Concocted stories are totally unnecessary and considering everyone in your circle is a social butterfly, there will be other opporutintes to connect and have a great time with true friends.

 Happy Friday - enjoy your weekend!
