Ten Original Excuses to use if you forgot to call Dear Old Dad on Father's Day: 10. "Lightning strike took out my phones." 9. "Was going to get you a card, but things are getting way too commercial, don't you agree?" 8. "I keep your phone number on my Newton, which of course hasn't shipped yet." 7. "All circuits were busy." 6. "Your E-mail bounced." (might have trouble with this one.) 5. "Thought you were supposed to call me." (might have trouble with this one too.) 4. "Did I surprise you by calling *the day after* Father's Day?" 3. Two words: "NBA Finals" 2. "I thought it was Mother's Day and called Mom instead." And the Number One Excuse for not calling your Father on Father's Day: "I was allowed only one phone call after putting that syringe in that can of Diet Pepsi."
