I got up at the crack of proverbial dawn. It was 7:45 on a SATURDAY morning.
That's nearly blasphemous.
But I was headed for an estate sale. Fluffed and puffed and manicured and ready to do business with the fast-talking man on the podium.
I drove in a sleepy-headed daze to the sale only to find that the auction was two weeks from today. That's what I get for trying to multi-task while driving. I got up for this???! What's a girl to do? Might as well get breakfast while I'm dressed.
I went to my favorite drive-thru restaurant downtown. Pulled up behind a car and waited and waited.....well, no time like the present to clean out the car. I poured yesterday's leftover drink out the window and onto the foot of the waitress who'd walked outside to wait on me. They've never done that before. I was mortified! Apologizing profusely ( she laughed but I was still embarrassed) so much so that I hurriedly hit the button to put up the window and got my hair caught in the electric guillotine. I should have stayed in bed.
This shining moment not to be surpassed by the fact that somehow along the way last night I lost the french tip on the fourth toe of my left foot. And I had to go out in public today. Oh.The.Horror.
Oh yes. There's more.
And this time they were ready.
