What's a good excuse for being a month late to an interview?

So I had an interview scheduled but another job hired me on the spot so I've been doing that for like a month and forgot about the interview to the other place. I called them today and said I had a family emergency that took all my time and attention. If they ask I wanna have something that will help them... show more So I had an interview scheduled but another job hired me on the spot so I've been doing that for like a month and forgot about the interview to the other place.

PS anything is appreciated even if it's not a family emergency as an excuse. Thanks in advance.
