"Sorry I can't go to Boston with you this weekend, it was too short notice for me to come up with the money for it."
"I don't make last minute travel plans b***h, and I got better s**t to do this weekend than to drive out to Boston and spend the night there just to go to a ******** museum and then come home."
I lied to my mom about already getting the card she sent me.
Then I actually checked my mail and got it.
And I liked it so much that I called her back to tell her I lied and then proceeded to talk about how much I liked it.
And everything was happy.
