You gain courage from somewhere deep inside and decide that you're sending a sexy photo to your love. What you didn't plan on doing is posting it for everyone to see! Now you need to delete the photo and come up with an excuse. What do you give as the reason? 

This past week, I'm scrolling through Snapchat seeing photos of people putting filters on their dogs, experiencing deep FOMO when I see friends out together and, of course, the obligatory snow photo. Then I play one friend's "story" and there's one photo that was CLEARLY not meant to be posted to her story.

Because I'm the most excellent friend I am, I screen shot the photo and text it to her "Are you wanting all of us to see what a great body you have?" She about died. It was obviously not for any of us to see. She was scrambling for an excuse as to why it was posted to her story. All she ended up doing was posting a selfie that followed saying "Sorry for that last photo". Ha!

It was then that I was thinking that I needed to help a sister out. I needed to be able to tell her to say one certain thing so people wouldn't know she was sending sexy photos to her guy.

This has happened to so many other people. The worst is when you take a photo of yourself and all that goes through your mind is who you shouldn't be sending it to. Since that person is going through your mind over and over again, it's actually who you send it to.

Noooooooooo!

I wanted to do a little research so if you're in this position and you accidentally text a nude to a family member, you can immediately follow it up with a clutch excuse that they will believe.

I posed this question to Mateo at Night and he had an immediate answer. His excuse: It's a "before" picture.

What's your excuse? Let's make a list.
