I'm not sure what this has do with the direction of this particular blog (DeMon's Blue Options), but I feel the need to share this with you. It's my definition of excuses. This isn't the dictionary definition. It's just my belief or interpretation of it. *So here it goes:
Excuses are merely explanations that mitigate personal responsibility while appearing to take ownership of the outcome, and spin it in a way to lesson blame and thus their involvement.
*wonderful use of ebonics on that one "so here it goes"... lol
