Darwin Award

Sometimes I wonder how I am still alive.  I mean seriously, it's a wonder I have made it this far.

If you've been following along, you might have read my post "Have You Ever Been Glad The Weekend Was Over?"  Now that was an utterly ridiculous series of events.  We all have those days, but I feel like maybe I have more of those days than most.

Really, I have a LOT of those days.

For example, this morning I actually get out of the house early.  I'm thinking Wow, I'm going to get to work early, which means I can leave early.  Which is always a bonus.

Nope.

Following my routine, I go fill up on gas and as I remove the pump from my tank and try to get back in my car, I realize that my car door is indeed locked and guess where the keys are.

Yes, in the cup holder.

This moment is made all the more special by the fact that when you click the lock button on my car, it will go ding ding twice and you have to press the button again to make it lock.  It's my car's very nice way of saying hey, don't forget your keys.

But I am an airhead so I have somehow managed to lock my keys in my car twice now.

Luckily for me my phone was in my back pocket and not also in the car.  Here comes the IPhone to the rescue.  I pulled up a $20 auto-unlock service, called them and they come within 15 minutes to unlock my car.

So ultimately I was on the road headed to work at about the normal time as usual but still out $19 and more than a little irritated with myself.  So I was quite delighted when I saw the prompt for my blogging challenge today, which was if I could change one thing about myself what would it be?  I would change the fact that I am a complete and total airhead in the hopes that ridiculousness like this would no longer be a part of my personal story.

TA-DA, The end, now I'm going to work where I hopefully will be able to pull my head out of my rear end.

  2. You can change this about yourself. Just like I can change my thing about myself. We can do it. We just have to focus.

    It also helps if you don't hear....AAAAAHHHHHH!

    You know? The sound of your estrogen falling!
