[Danny Says] Danny's Fool Proof Excuse

User Journal 10

Recently the family was at a hotel. I asked Danny to get me my shoes his reply was, "No. I can't. I'm naked." He was, in fact, naked at that point.

Several days later I asked him to do something:

Me: Danny, beer me!

Danny: No, I can't. I'm naked.

Me: (looking at him) No you aren't. You're totally wearing clothes.

Danny: Not anymore.

And then Danny was naked. In my living room. Naked as the day he was untimely ripp'd from mother's womb.

No, I can't. I'm naked.

You have to admit it's a pretty good excuse.

He's not losing his touch.

and come to the realisation that being naked is the reason to do things.

Damn...that IS a good excuse... (1)

And from the mouth of babes, no less.

I should see if I can find some strategically advantageous ways of applying this great wisdom. :^)

I can only assume that this idea is NSFW. Even in the porn industry, where you are supposed to work naked.

Actually, I regularly get asked to do stuff by people talking over the cube walls at work.

"Hey, could you come over here a sec and help me [do X]?"

"No I can't. I'm naked."

"WHAT?!"

"What?"

"What did you say?"

"I said I can't."

"Yeah, but after that?"

"What?"

"You said something after...wait, I heard you say"

"[soft voice] Naked."

"What?!"

"What?"

"What did you say?"

"Leave me alone. I'm naked."

And so on and so forth. I could have a lotta fun with this, and actually get work done, too, since most of the interruptions are pointless anyway. :^b

Now all I need is something to say that sounds like "naked", for plausible deniability. And just so's I can *&#$ with people.

"I'm the 'nay kid' - you ask me to do something when I'm busy, and I vote nay".

Re:Damn...that IS a good excuse... (1)

Pancho Pistolas (846302) | more than 6 years ago | (#23149684)

You'd say 'nay' to a chance to *&#$ with somebody's head?

'Cause I'm all about the 'yay' on that count! :^)

Sorry - I said that badly.

First you say naked, then, when asked for clarification, you announce that you are the 'Nay kid'.

So yes, you do get to screw with their heads. ;-)

I have a modified version of this that I use on my wife, albeit unthinkingly most of the time.

When I get home in the evening, one of the first things I do is take off my work clothes and put on a pair of sweat pants, sans shirt, shoes or much of anything else. Apparently, I do this very quickly; or so my wife tells me. The end result is that she will want to get me to go out and do something but will pull up short because of my now half-dressed state.

Of course, I usually still end up doing what she asks, but it does slow her down. I also have very little shame and will walk the trash down to the dumpster dressed as stated.
