I believe in a higher power, I do, I do, I do!
Just when you think everything is normal (and maybe even slightly boring) and you're walking along living your life almost effortlessly without even thinking about it, that's when The Great Equalizer sends something along to shake things up a bit, just as a reminder
: Things can change Without Warning.
OK, here's the story (morning glory):
I worked and after work (which went fine) Sam (a server at my restaurant) offered to give me a ride home. I was in a rush to get outta there because Sam was ready to leave. I dashed to my locker and grabbed by jacket and backpack and then Zoom!
we were on our way. Sam didn't know about driving downtown so I was the navigator. Sam didn't hear me when I said to make a right and we were headed left and I said "No! We need to go right! Right!" so we swerve to the other lane where we needed to be and there was a cop
The cop thought Sam had been drinking and was asking all kinds of questions: Where were we coming from, where were we going, why were you driving so crazy, and so forth. After explaing it at least 3 times, eventually he let us go.
Sam let's me out at the front gate in front of my building and I use my code to get in, and I wave goodbye to Sam as the car drives away and I get to my front door and then I suddenly realize with a sense of utter dread
that put icicles in my stomach and made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, that I left my house keys in my locker!"F*** a duck!"
I exclaimed in frustration.
So I'm wondering what to do. The retaraunt was closed at that point, no way to get my keys until they opened the next day. I decided to knock on Thomas' door to ask to use his phone. He's my upstairs nighbor.
I really hated
to do it. It was nearly midnight, much too late for uninvited guests. We've had maybe two dozen conversations and I think I was at his apartment once in the year and a half I've been living at my building.*sigh*
I knocked on Thomas' door, explained what happened and he said I could crash on his sofa.
I was way
grateful. He suggested a "key exchange" so in case this happens again to either one of us, we wouldn't get locked out. A really good idea! I told him I'd think about it.
So the next day I get up, thank Thomas again, and head to work. I had to be there by 12PM anyway so I just stayed there. No sense in going home just to turn around and go back to work anyway. Work was so slow
they let me go home early. I was a little tired, but I decided to go out anyway. I went to the Allegro and it was really fun. I had a ball! I was just sitting there, drinking my cocktail, when I felt these hairy monkey paws grab me from behind and I'm thinking "Who in the hell is this!", but it turned out to be Jason dressed as a gorilla!
That man is sexy even in an ape suit!
Shawn was there dressed as Sir Elton. Anyone can be Elton John with a gaudy and funky pair of sunglasses.
There was also alot
of tacky drag! Why is it on Halloween every other queen decides to put on a dress?
Not a bit hung over, even though I drank a little more than usual.
It's Friday, so you just know I'm working.
That's OK. My next day off is Monday --only 3 days away.
I can dig it.
