Has anyone seen the Happy/Laughing Cow commercials w/the cute girl? I love the one where she's had a hectic day at work, gets off just in time to catch the bus. Gets home and puts her feet up to relax, grabs the remote control and realizes that she actually "drove to work" that day! (or something like that)
Anyway, I had a moment like that yesterday! I had just finished my crime meeting and was in such a good mood, I decided to treat myself to lunch. There's NEVER any parking in the city, so I decided to hit a fast food drive in (blah...) As I'm driving down 5th St., NW, I see my favorite spot to the left and a parking space to the right.
Unbelievable, I thought, while talking on my cell phone. I immediately stopped in the middle of the street and made an unauthorized u-turn. After squeezing the car in and working up a little sweat, I got out, hit the alarm and strolled across the street. I was just a smiling and switching. I had on my new Jessica Simpson pumps and I felt great (smile).
Anyway, I walked in and there was no wait. I got a great seat by the window and all eyes were on me. I'd gotten my hair done this past Friday and I was looking hot! Got the menu, glanced over it, trying to figure out what it was I was actually craving and decided on a Turkey Burger & sweet potatoe fries (yummy)!
I just had to call my friend and tell him about the luck I'd just encountered. And while searching through my bag, I noticed that I did not have my "WALLET." No credit/debit card, no cash, no checks; just a big smile. I burst into laughter so hard, tears came to my eyes and again, all eyes were on me.
I was "NOT" leaving my favorite spot w/out a Turkey burger. THANK GOD for BFF. I called mine, and he brought me $20.00
