Those days.

6:20 a.m. and Matt realized his alarm didn't wake him up, and he jolted himself out of bed with a plan to be at work by 6:30. I should have known right then we'd have one of those days...

6:45, I found out shortly after he left that he forgot his phone.

I had a nightmare between 6:30 and 7:30...a parking attendant in Philly was chasing me around trying to kill me.

7:30, I felt SO groggy from running from the angry parking attendant.

8:30, I was out the door on my way to my doctor's appointment in Central Philly. No traffic, no problem.

9:30, about to reach the exit....oh blast! That WAS the exit. Lets try this road....nope.

9:40, crossing the Ben Franklin Bridge into NJ...yes, the appointment is in Philly, not Jersey.

9:43, realized there is a toll to go BACK over the BFBridge. I never carry cash. Alas, I have $4. The toll is $4! God is good.

9:47, back in PA, found the parking lot, parked (I'm a regular in this lot now). Security attendant was friendly. Day was getting better.

9:50, signed in. Took my seat in the waiting room.

10:00, walked back out to the parking lot....

....my appointment is tomorrow.

Oh, baby - you make me laugh. I'm glad you could laugh at your day because I'm sure your only other alternative would be to cry. Mine would be.
