6:00 pm: Return home from an exhausting trip to church with a two-year-old.
6:01 pm: Preston tells me I can go pick out a movie and pick up dinner. 10 points for a wonderful husband, I think he knew I was a bit stressed and could use a few minutes to myself.
6:02 pm: Get in car, fuel light comes on.
6:03 pm: Hope my car isn’t gonna die before I make it to the gas station.
6:04 pm: Get gas in windy/cold weather.
6:08 pm: Park illegally behind two other illegally parked cars to rent a Redbox movie.
6:08:30: Stand behind two people for 30 seconds, then decide to go inside and get some deli food for dinner.
6:10 pm: Start with chinese for me. They’re out of crab rangoon, bummer! Chinese Deli Lady asks if I want to wait for them, they’ll only take 30 seconds. You’re darn right I do! I tell her I’ll be right back, I need to get some chicken for my husband.
6:12 pm: Get chicken. Chicken Deli Lady says they’re out of dinner rolls, it’ll only be a second if I want to wait for one. Yep, sure do. Tell her, I’ll be right back, I need to get my chinese food.
6:14 pm: Grab chinese food.
6:15 pm: Pick up chicken, pay for both. Walk back by chinese food to fill up two styrofoam cups of tea.
6:17 pm: Finish filling up tea, realize I’ve forgotten the sweet & sour sauce to dip my crab rangoon in.
6:19 pm: Wait in line to get sweet & sour sauce.
6:20 pm: Walk back outside and see there are 2 more people in line for redbox. Then look over and see my car. Crap!
6:21 pm: Run over to put my food/drinks in car.
6:21 pm: Unlock car and open door. My hand somehow squishes one drink and the whole glass of tea basically dumps into my car.
6:22 pm: Begin cursing while cleaning my car out.
6:25 pm: Walk by Redbox to throw leaking cup of tea away. Notice there are again two more people standing in line waiting to rent.
6:25 pm: Realize second person in line is someone I know.
6:25 pm: Smile and say, “hi”
6:26 pm: Walk right back to car and drive home with no Redbox movie and only one glass of tea.
