"A phrase often heard at the beginning of a fictitious tale typically offered as an excuse for inappropriate, unprofessional or otherwise suspect behavior." ~ Urban Dictionary
Example: "I had a really great cliche shot planned for today, but what had happened was, it was too complicated and I ran out of time"
When, in reality, I'm just a slacker.
:::EDIT::: hahaha I love that this made Front Page after my rant the other day about how the Donkey hates me. Is Big Brother watching!?!?
