My car-jacker...

The other day I needed to go to the other base around here and pick up my girls from a sleepover. I had to take the same street where I had my accident. I've been up and down that street at least a dozen times since then so I'm thinking no problemo. I was as wrong as wrong can be. Now please know before I start this story that I am soooo not making this up!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't think of this stuff if I tried. Here is what transpired...(you know it's a good story when I break out the big words!)
I'm driving along, minding my own business when I stop at a traffic light. There are wall to wall cars so you can't go anywhere. I see this man looking at me and walking funny on the sidewalk. For some reason I think to lock my door. Good thing I did cause he walked on over to the car. he knocks on the window and points to his hand. I nod my head no and hold up my hand then go back to looking out the front window and saying 70 hail mary's that he will leave. He doesn't. He tries to open the door!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you even believe it???????????????? He starts yanking on the door and pounding on the window. Yeah, I was a little freaked at this point and again I looked at him and shook my head and said no. I started to look around for other Americans......where are you guys when I need you by the way??????????? Finally the light turns green and we can move, the guy just stands there with a funny smile on his face and waves bye-bye to me. If my mother is reading this I didn't flip him off...if she isn't then HECK YEAH I DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a little talk with God after all of that. I promised him I would never cuss again or eat ice cream if He would keep the drama to a minimum til the hubby gets back. Here's hoping He was listening!!!!
Hope everyone else had an uneventful day!!!
:)
This is Dawn...the attractor of all crazies singing off....bye!

OK, Dawn, go to the nearest store and buy the biggest can of D-CON you can find, because I think the locusts are headed your way! The plague, too! Watch out

Man, I can't believe all that has happened to you in the weeks since your hubby left. That will teach him to leave again! You deserve some major league pampering when he returns.

I'm so happy that your sense of humor is still very much intact. I loved when, if your mom is reading, you didn't flip him off, but if she wasn't reading, you did!
Too funny. Take care

Quick, go buy a copy of The Secret. You should get the book on tape so you can listen as you drive along. You need to start attracting good karma instead of the bad. :-D You must be under a dark cosmic cloud or something. I can't believe this so soon after your little accident.

Oh my! I think I would be hiding in the house preferably in the closet until your hubby gets back. The kids can cook can't they? ;)
