Yep, this is what I’m doing.

Or, just say directly that you’re supporting multiple projects and this is low on your list of priorities. Seriously, Take that stress off of you, and make the reprioritization your boss’s problem. Just be transparent and kickass on anything your name is attached to...don’t dilute your reputation.
