I’ve been a little sleepy and/or out of it the past few days. So much going on… I’m just trying to not fall down the rabbit hole. I realize it’s probably not so good to start a story off with excuses, but I have to give you an idea of what we’re working with here. I’ve been so out of it I drank coffee EVERY day this week. I don’t even like coffee, but if I didn’t have it, I wasn’t going to make to the shower in the morning… let alone work.
So, today I woke up at 6:00 a.m. to get ready to go snowboarding in Keystone. No big deal. Pulled everything together, applied layer after layer of socks, pants, shirts etc. and stumbled out the door. Stopped for some coffee and was on my way. I made it to the meeting spot, switched my board, boots, bag and belongings to another car and settled in for the ride up. Right before we left I quick (well nothing was very quick this morning) ran meandered back to my car to grab the new CD I’d made. Can’t go on without it. Turned the car on, hit eject and ran back to deliver the goods. And deliver I did.
About, oh, 7 hours pass. We head back down the mountain and I realize I don’t have my keys. Can’t find them ANYWHERE. Not in my bag, not in my coat, not in my pants. NO WHERE. You want to know where they were? Take a guess. Really, do it. They were in the ignition. In a parking lot. For 7 hours. Now, before you tell me what an idiot I am (I know, I know), you have to know that I also left the car on. Battery is now dead and I’m out of gas.
*Insert laughter and head shaking here*
I’m an idiot. Example one.
