I think that everyone should have one of these in their arsenal. This is an excerpt from a letter I had to send to a friend this morning:
I meant to send you my "Morning After Going Drinking Apology Letter Template," but I already had two emails in to you so I refrained.
Basically, the Morning After Going Drinking Apology Letter Template features the following clauses:
-Sorry if I talked way too much about myself
-Sorry if this excessive talking about myself interfered with you wanting to talk about yourself (excessively)
-If I said anything negative about anyone/anything, it was the alcohol talking, not me. I'm an angel when I'm sober.
Anyway, that should cover all the bases. I totally missed a doctors appt this morning, not due to drinking, due moreover to the fact that I'm mildly retarded.
