Ultimate All-Purpose Excuse

If I was tardy one day in my english class my fantastic excuse would be that i just got to school. If my teacher asked me “why I was late”. I would say “I just got to school”.And my teacher would ask “where is your hall pass”. I would tell my teacher “I gave my doctors note to them and i was in there for a long time waiting for the hall pass and the printer wasn't working so they let me go without a hall pass”.And hopefully my teacher would by without getting a tardy.That is my fantastic excuse.

The stranger would get to know that a kind person filled out these pages.If the stranger read my pages he would get to know that my favorite athletes are Michael Jordan, Derrick Rose, and Jamaal Charles. He would get to know that I could be one of the greatest people in the world.All of that is what a random stranger would know about me if he/she read my portfolio from beginning to end.
