I'm not even talking about my physique, which, really, the title of this post could describe as well.
I went to Wal-Mart today. Horror of horrors, I know, but it's really convenient to me. Mr. Monkey has been so sick lately. He called me at work, and, in a very feeble voice, requested sugar-free cough drops. I was on a mission of goodwill.
With two different bags of Ricola in hand (variety is the spice of life), I left the store and started walking in the hot summer sun to my car.
Or so I thought.
I couldn't find my damn car!
After pacing up and down several aisles, exasperated, I said quite loudly, "Where the fuck is my car?!"
A mother with two young children glared at me.
Finally, I spied my ugly beat-up purple clunker in the distance.
And this is why I'm slow (read: dumb) and unfit (read: not mother material).
I've spent at least 20 minutes in the CSULB parking lot with my clicker held high above my head, stretching any hearing capabilities I have as I click my car to hear where it is coming from. I have been there. I feel for you.ReplyDelete
HILARIOUS. ps. Walmart is the devil.ReplyDelete
I vowed never to go to the Century City Mall parking lot after losing my car and walking around that damn underground dungeon for 50 minutes. I finally gave up and called Mr. Insomniac to come get me and take me home and we went back to get my car at 1am.ReplyDelete
I hope you at least remembered the sugar-free variety. Tres important!ReplyDelete
But you're quick and fit enough to find your car. Kudos! =)ReplyDelete
I once spent 2 hours wandering around the campus parking lot looking for my car. It was my first day of school there. Ever since then I have written the row I'm parked in on my hand so that never happens again.ReplyDelete
at least you weren't at century city mall.ReplyDelete
hope the panda feels better soon.
I do that crap at CSULB ALL the time! luckily not around any children =)ReplyDelete
I say shit like that around my kid all the time. Then I catch myself and realize I probably shouldn't. *sigh* My kid's first word is going to be fuck. No doubt.ReplyDelete
glad to read I'm not the only one who has lost her car...not fun! I agree, WM is the devil for more than one reason.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry, but did you say Walmart?!?ReplyDelete
We lost our car at Angels Stadium on Saturday night. Stoopid Toyota Corolla having 3,799 twins in the parking lot! Thank God for the panic button!ReplyDelete
At least you recognize your car. I try to get into someone else's car almost daily.ReplyDelete
But as someone still suffering from a cold, I appreciate your willingness to get your husband the specific coughdrops he wanted.
Hope Mr. Monkey feels better..ReplyDelete
On another note this post made me fricken LOL.
I lost my car in the Disneyland parking lot once. That was bad news.ReplyDelete
Im slow and unfit too - LOLReplyDelete
I love it. I always lose my friggin' car, too. It's annoying.ReplyDelete
Awwwww. Nothing wrong with that. We've all been there.ReplyDelete
