Today was, to put it mildly, a challenge. To begin, it was 94 degrees and humid when I began about Noon. I pulled a little close to the gas station pump and there wasn't room to maneuver, so I couldn't get out my crutches - so I limp/.dragged in to pay my $10.00. I tried to put the nozzle in my tank and it wouldn't go - THEN I notice the light is flashing over "Diesel!." I figured I must have hit it by mistake, so back in the office I go. She cancels the transaction out, puts it back in and back outside to the pump I go. (I figure some reading this have already figured it out!!!) I repeated this process, canceling the transaction, going back in, coming back out, about five times (all without crutches) when I notice the nozzle on the OTHER side of the pump! Gee, perhaps the attendant could have mentioned something about this BEFORE my many limp/drags back and forth??
Then I get to Kohl's and make that return easy peasy.
Next to Sears to return a Lands End purchase. I park at the entrance where I know a register is right inside. When I get there, I am sent to the Lands End counter at the OTHER end of the store ----- but at least they have AC....so I limp/drag my way across the store. I take note of the entrance to the appliance section of the store with concrete columns over the doors. When I leave, I go back through the appliances, out the door ----- and cannot find my CRV. In the heat (but WITH my crutches at least), I scour that lot hither and yon - getting hotter and more desperate as time goes by. I finally find a spot of shade and decide to think about it LOGICALLY. I then retrace my route into the lot and realize there are TWO entrances with cement columns, both emanating from the appliance department and.....I find my truck.
On to the spa for a pedicure. AFTER I parked and limp/dragged the three blocks, in the heat, I realized I left my flip flops IN THE TRUCK...so back I go.....limp/drag/limp/drag!
I am FINALLY home.....and I am not going to smoke over ANY of it.....but I guarantee I ain't movin' an inch this evening!
I hope you all fared better today!
