I think I may have had the most insane day of my life. Someone complained about my blog being boring (spencer) and he was right. So all day long as the insanity happened, I kept thinking "I have gotta blog about this." It started off with my car, my stupid stupid car. It has been acting up forever. I was trying to go and meet a friend for lunch and as I was parking, my car lurched into a fountain. Talk about embarrassing. I thought I was going to have to get it towed out and EVERYONE was looking at my crazy driving, but I swear it was the car. It was like possessed or something. So I was able to reverse out of the fountain, not without grinding noises and more looks. But as I was reversing out of the fountain, the car wouldn't stop. Seriously, I tried everything- it was stuck in gear and the breaks were not responding. I even pulled the emergency break- but nothing happened, I kept going. The resturaunt where I was supposed to meet my friend was right behind me. People were eating outside on the patio and my car was heading right for them!!! I kept praying "Please don't let me hit anyone, please don't let me hit anyone!" Well I hit the restaurant, but everyone jumped out of the way. But my car was smashed and the front of the restaurant was smashed. I wasn't hurt, but I sure was embarrassed. When I finally got out of the car, they had me wait in the lobby for the police and the ambulance to come (they said it was necessary protocol). Now I know this story can't get any weirder, but who was in the lobby with me? DR. PHIL! I am not lying. He saw the distress on my face and started talking to me. Somehow it came up that I was thirty and single and Dr. Phil started giving me advice! He was telling me to "get myself out there" and to "stop being so picky". All things I have heard before- he gets paid a billion dollars for this advice? I could do that.
Well, needless to say, I woke up. And when I realized it was just a dream I was SO bummed that I didn't have an exciting story to blog about. So I did anyway.
