De Je Vu All Over Again
OMG I can't believe I was dumb enough to let it happen again. What kind of a moron locks herself out of the house twice in less than 2 months? Seriously, I am an independent, smart and educated female, what is wrong with me? I went downstairs to put laundry in the machine and came up the stairs to go back in side and think about if I wanted to cook dinner or not and low and behold the door was locked. So now I have to decide do I want to walk someplace in my slippers and call my husband to see when he will be home so he can rescue me or do I hang out in the laundry room and wait for him? I start walking with no idea where I am headed because I had no intention of going anywhere when I started my load of laundry. I figure I will walk to the diner close by, call D and tell him to meet me there for dinner and I can just sit, order and wait for him. You have no idea how hard it is to find a damn payphone now a days (I sound like an old fart talking about in my day) Of course the diner has no phone. So I keep walking, end up at the library where I am excited to see they are open until 9:00pm. I try to use the pay phone and of course you can't make a collect call to a cell phone and I can't charge the call to my house because there is no one home to authorize the charge. I tell my saga to the operator and she tries to connect me but as soon as D answers the phone the call is disconnected. So I beg the kid at the library desk to let me use the phone. As soon as D hears me say "I locked myself out again" he busts out laughing (can you blame him?) so he says he will meet me in 20 minutes. No problem, I am sure I can find something to do for 20 minutes inside the warm library. Well 35 minutes my knight in shining armor walked through the door to rescue me. As I sit and type this I have given up on laundry and am enjoying a glass of red wine.
