explaining things away

Do you recognize these explanations? (I'm putting them in quotes, but doing this from memory so the quotes may not be exact.)

1. "We only wanted to cover the safe."

2. "The cuffs were frayed..."

3. "He probably still had a chip on his shoulder."

4. "Maybe the wind blew the top back."

5. "He used to fold up a piece of paper and use it as a bookmark."

6. Maybe she got up from the chair at that moment."

7. "Oh, I've been growing much fonder of him lately."

8. "I was just following instructions."

9. "Maybe she lied to cover up her carelessness."

10. "I put it there myself."
