Until I get myself settled (I’m still not unpacked. This busy/lazy girl needs to get to work this weekend) I thought I would share another story with you about the day I had yesterday.
I was working from home while I waited for the cable guy to come install the eyesore of a dish that was to be placed on my balcony. When I heard a knock on the door I hopped up with delight, daydreaming of all the TLC and Lifetime shows that were about to be watched. When I made it to the laminate tile in my entry way I hit a slick spot and before I knew it my butt had escaped my skirt and my legs were up in the air.
Knee skinned and face beet red, I sat for a minute trying not to think about the fact that the cable guy had definitely heard me eat shit. I realized then that I was sitting in Emma’s puke. I took a deep breath and tried not to laugh (because people falling is THE most hilarious thing in the world to me…even when it’s me that fell) and opened the door for the cable guy like nothing had happened, wiping dog puke from my knees and hands while his back was turned.
Turns out I can’t have a dish on my patio because it is facing the wrong way. We can use the internet while we are flying in the clouds, but heaven forbid I should have a North facing apartment balcony. I called the company to see about getting a refund and the conversation with the first man I spoke to ended with me saying “sir, you are really pissing me off. I need to speak to someone other than you, please”. In the end when the lady he transferred me to asked if I wanted a second opinion I said “no thank you. I don’t want cable anymore. It’s too much work.”
To destress I went to see Cabin in the Woods (pretty good movie). I didn’t realize it was taboo to wear a dress to the movies, but some lady “whispered” to her husband about how I was “all dressed up” for the movies. I guess they frown upon dresses and heels in Oceanside. All in all I’d say it was a pretty great day.
