This Moment Brought To You By Ditzy Mimi


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.

Did I go home? Heck no. I drove ten miles down the road and found this: Wait til you see what I found.
Oh yes. There's more.
And this time they were ready.
Stay tuned tomorrow.

Sorry, I am done here. I tell people I know you and you go out with broken pedicures?

Julia Smith said...

I know it's bad at the time. But those kinds of mornings always make hilarious posts - thanks for the laugh!

Mark said...

Ha, there are no accidents, just curves in the journey we did not see coming. Looking forward to more.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I hope they had the red carpet.

The Gal Herself said...

Can you tip the waitresses at the drive-in? (Not having a car hampers my knowledge of drive-in etiquette.)

How many books did you leave with? Are you counting them by numerals, or by the pound?

Starrlight said...

You have not lived until you have closed your hair in the car door and then tried to walk away.

Not so graceful =(

reeflightning said...

i would like to make a brilliant comment but ...
'fraid it is past my bedtime.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - I guess they have the internet now....Amazing, huh??!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - It was a weird day!

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Then you know how traumatic it was for me to venture out with such a catastrophe. I'm trying to remain calm....

Mimi Lenox said...

Julia - My life seems to be a series of such mornings.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mark - Interesting you should mention curves. I've got plenty of them coming up in tonight's post! Stay tuned..

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - Now you're talking!

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - You'll have to wait 'til later this evening to find out. And oh! How in the world do you survive without a car? The therapeutic value of driving is worth the sticker price to me.
Seriously!

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr - It was a moment.

Mimi Lenox said...

ree - Welcome to my insanity. I'm glad you find my humor entertaining.
A French Tip is a little white painted handpainted pedicured toe.
Prissy. So, technically, this was not an acrylic add-on. It was my actual toe with the painted tip.
Oh my Lord! That must have hurt!


I need to lie down now.

Duchess Dethroned said...
