A BAD START IN THE DAY

Some days you better stay in bed and wait until the day is over. Yesterday was such a day for me, at least in the morning. Afternoon I didn't move to avoid other troubles.

It was the day of my painting course, so in a joyful mood I got in my car and when I was just at the corner, I wasn't sure if I had closed the garage door, I couldn't get this idea out of my head so I made a U-turn went back to the house and found the garage door closed. Reassured I drove to my course. During the short trip I heard my horoscope on the radio and it promised me a lucky and happy day.

When I arrived I wanted to take my painting stuff and realized that I had forgotten it while I had put on my shoes in the basement. I pronounced a word of 5 letters in french and 4 in English starting whith sh... got in my car and looked for my mobile, just to call my teacher and tell what happened and that I would be a little late.

I turned my purse upside down, which wasn't that easy my purse has 5 zips and compartments. Result : no mobile. Again the word with 5 or 4 letters and I hurried home as quick as traffic and speed limit allowed.

First I looked for my mobile and did thorough searching like the police in a crime story but couldn't find it. Finally I called myself on the mobile and heard it ringing in the pocked of my parka ! I sighed picked up my painting stuff, got into the car, closed the garage door with the remote control and tried to get back to my course as quick as possible. I took little side streets instead of the fully packed main street, but when I arrived at the church, there was just a funeral cortage coming out with many many cars which also wanted to avoid the main street !

I had no choice I had to stop and let the cars go by one by one, with crying people inside. And this early morning, an idal start in the day. I followed the cortege at 20 km/h (12 miles) and my blood pressure went up to 180 ! As soon as I could get out of the cortege I took a little street, got completely lost and had to put my GPS on to guide me safely to my painting course, where I finally arrived 45 min late ! Everybody asked me where I had been, because some had seen me when I first arrived and then drove back, except the one who kept the account for our membership fees, she asked me if I had thought about the money. And of course I hadn't thought of it at all !

Moral of the story, never believe in horoscopes !

How funny! I love to read stories like this. Not because I love to laugh at people. But because it seems to happen to me so often!

An unfortunate series of events!! LOL you are at least brilliant to see the humor in everyday life situations and share them with us...so maybe we don't feel quite so stupid when we make those little mistakes in life. You are adorable!!

Good choice to stay home in the afternoon and wait for the day to pass!

Oh, yes, how we know days like that, we have them all the time, hubby and me, but that's because we have serious Altzheimers for sure! Always forgetting something, DESPITE the fact that we're TWO and constantly reminding each other to make sure that we have everything we need with us. No brains left. *giggles*
