wet mondays

you know it's going to be a bad Monday when your day starts out like so:

*you realize all of your contacts in your phone have been deleted by a software update
* you are on the bus when you are frantically trying to retrieve your lost phone numbers
*you are so busy dinking with your phone when you look up and realize that you missed your stop
*which wouldn't be so bad, except your stop is the very last one
*you remember your bus is the very last bus into downtown as you are getting on the freeway, heading to the garage
*you run to the front of the bus and tell the driver that you missed your destination
*you scare the crap out of him because he has NO idea he still has a passenger on board
*the driver desperately pulls the bus over, as if you have him at gun point

so there you are, walking on a 6-inch ledge on the freeway
in the pouring rain
as buses and cars speed past you, dousing you as you fade into their rear-view mirrors

Oh my poor McCall. What a horrible way to start your day/week. I sure hope it only got better.

McCall! Mondays are already bad enough! The good news is, your week can only get better, right?

Love you :)

Ooohhh- That is a really bad day. I'm so sorry to hear about it. I would have been crying in frustration, because that's what I do these days when things don't go my way. As Gav would say, "This is not my favorite day." I hope that your week goes much better. We really really miss you.

Oh my gosh, Call! That is terrible! I can't believe he dropped you on the freeway, that's insane!

Liz said...

I hope you were wearing appropriate footwear for that. And hopefully you had something really good for lunch to cheer yourself up, or at least made yourself a chocolate pie when you got home. Chocolate pie heals ALL wounds.

Poor McCall.

By the way... I wanted to tell you I have the exact same commitment issues as you. I'm just glad to know I'm not alone!
