That used to be the catch-all excuse for all musical cancellations from major surgery to an illicit tryst in Hawaii.
I think we finally drove the term out of business.
Now they’re falling back on ‘personal reasons’ – which is even crappier.
What, exactly, is a personal reason?
Leaky bladder? A director with wandering hands? Cat has to be taken to the vet? Pasta’s not up to mamma’s standards? New boyfriend doesn’t like Verdi?
Any more suggestions?
