101 uses for a cancer diagnosis: #86

Kit forgot to take his homework this morning and I asked if he had to do it again.
"Nope," he declared proudly at the supper table. "I told my teacher that my grampy has cancer and things were in such a muddle that I forgot to bring my homework."

All jaws dropped around the table before turning to laughter.
"Really?" Grammo was incredulous. "You used your grandfather's illness as an excuse to get out of homework?"
"I only told her we were upset and I forgot," he said.

Well." I shrugged. "Glad I could help."
