- I have head lice.
- The barometer was too high.
- The neighbor’s dog died in front of my garage, and I couldn’t get the door open.
- I couldn’t open my garage door because the power went off.
- My car tires were repossessed, and my car was up on blocks.
- I left my car keys at work last night.

- I got so sunburned on the weekend that I couldn’t get dressed. (I'd believe this one - but you'd have to obviously look sunburnt the next day at work)
