Lipsey’s Law of True Explanations: The true explanation of why you messed up can always be stated in six words or less. Some examples of true explanations: I overslept. I drank too much. I didn’t read the instructions. I didn’t know they checked. I thought you wouldn’t notice. I forgot to turn it on/off. I don’t actually know Spanish/Tagalog/Navajo. I dropped/lost/burned/over-tightened it. I’m not really a pharmacist.
