Friday was one of those days that went off without a hitch. Oh wait, does without a hitch mean to hell and back? If so, then that’s what it was.
It started off with me running around as per usual. It happened to be a rainy morning. Scratch that. It was pouring rain. I got to my bus stop and waited. Waited. Waited. There were 5 people there before me so I knew I hadn’t missed the bus. Waited. Waited. 20 minutes later I decided that my bus was just not coming. I kept waiting. Next bus half an hour later shows up. Of course it’s completely packed because there are 2 bus worth of people jammed into one bus. It’s almost 8 by this time. I work at 8:30. It takes me an hour and a half to get to work. You do the math. A bus ride, metro ride and another bus ride later, I get to work. An hour late.
Fast forward to the end of the day. We leave a little late = I miss one of my normal connections. This means that instead of taking a bus, a metro and another bus, I have to take a bus, a metro, a bus and then another bus. Of course there’s retarded traffic so I miss the last connection. The next bus isn’t for another 20 minutes. It’s (still) pouring rain and freezing. I walk over to salvation army to keep warm and do some browsing while I wait for my bus. I see a sign saying 50% off. SCORE. I find a really nice coat. It’s 24.99. Hmmmm that’s only 12.50. I notice the sign says sale ends at 5:00pm. It’s 7:00. I shouldn’t buy the coat… but it’s nice but I don’t need a coat, but its in perfect condition… I’m running out of time to make a decision so I decide to buy it. I get to the cash, there’s a guy there. They are talking about some plug, the guy goes to see if he can find some sort of plug thing. The old friendly man at the cash makes me WAIT till the guy comes back. Waiting… small talk… waiting… I look over. The guy is browsing the BOOKS. Look at my watch, bus leaving in 4minutes. I ask the man if he can cancel the guys’ stuff on the register and pass me. Apparently this idea hasn’t occurred to him… He does it (slow as molasses in January) I pay $25 for this coat I don’t even need. I rush into the rain, across the street in time to see my bus leave… In the end I don’t even want this damn coat. What is wrong with me?
It’s days like those that make me want to just curl up in a ball and stay in bed all day every day. I worked 3 years for a company where I had to get up at 6am, out the door at 6:30 to be at work for 8am and then back home by 6:30pm. Now it’s been over a year I’ve been doing the above daily treck.
Despite my ‘super D duper’ day, I was pretty happy with this outfit. I had a sudden inspiration from Zoe to fold up the bottom of these jeggings pants and pair them with a v neck tee and heels. If only I were 8 inches taller. Then I would steal Zoe’s identity.
p.s. Freakin hair. It’s going on the chopping block. Soon.
