A couple of random things

11.23.2010

1. Sometimes Russ and I plan our date nights to have a romantic evening together, and sometimes they're just for fun, and when that's the case the more the merrier! Case in point: Saturday night we went out with Russ's brother Erik and his wife Tricia and ended up having a high school throw-back date night out! We ate at the mall food court, drank Jamba Juice, had cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon, saw a movie, and then briefly raced a stranger on the freeway on the way home. Oh yes we did. And about died laughing.

2. My husband's commuter car is a junker that I refuse to be seen in except in desperate cases, such as yesterday afternoon when I needed to run into town to return some movies that were due back at the video store and Russ was using the Tahoe to haul firewood. Okay, it wasn't desperate but I really wanted a Starbucks coffee. Enough so that I lowered my pride and took the Geo, which I deeply regretted when I pulled up in front of Blockbuster and could not get out. On either side. Both doors locked and would not unlock no matter how much I messed with them, or rolled down the window to try from the outside. Nothing doing. I was stuck. 

Believe me when I say that I left Russ a heated message on his cell phone and may have ended with a loud audible "Grrrrr" before hanging up. After 5 minutes and a serious debate with myself over whether to drive back home and have overdue movies or climb out the car window to return them I thankfully unlocked the doors. 

3. I learned something about myself yesterday: I am waaaay too prideful to climb out a car window when parked in front of a video store. It was never gonna happen, people.

  5. Very funny! I think you and Russ should swap vehicles all the time! I'm going to suggest this next time I see him.

  7. I would have been frustrated to no end, but never would have climbed out the window and would crawl up into a ball of embarrassment if I would have had to "flag" a passer-by-er. That's why us melancholys would never have done that. We would go home with over due movies (and maybe cry!)

  8. I would have definately left a heated message about the car (done it before) then I would have cried a little and finally I would flag someone down to drop the movie in the box, but not without a pitty party!
