So my father is out of town on business and my mother is home alone for the next couple of days. She called me this morning while I was on my way to work and told me something that almost made me crash I was laughing so hard.
My mother, late last night, decides she smells burning rubber and calls the fire department to ask if they knew of something burning in the neighborhood. They said they didn't but replied that they would send a few men to check it out. My mother feels assured and goes back to bed. Now let me say that my mother is alone and is paranoid. An hour or so later she hears a knock at the door and goes to answer it in her nightgown not knowing who it was.
She opens the door to see four large firemen standing there (she felt the need to tell me that one of them was very cute).
"Oh...Hi. Are you here because you found something? Is something burning?"
" Ma'am...do you know what a skunk smells like?"
Yes people. My mother thought the smell of a skunk was a fire with burning rubber somewhere in the neighborhood.
In other news...
Today I have been with my boyfriend for 7 months. I call it 7 months of joy, laughs, growth, and love...
He calls it..."7 months of putting up with you," "7 months and I am still alive," and, "7 months ago I had no gray hairs."
The season finale of The O.C made me cry many many times. I have to say that after a less than stellar season they pulled out all of the stops for the finale. Hopefully next season will be a good one.
I saw two puppies at the pet store this weekend. I am soooo tempted you have no idea. I like the Jack Russell and the King Charles Cavalier (sp?). I want a puppy!!!
I talked for over 5,000 minutes on my cell phone last month. I think I might have some issues. :0 Though I can't be the only one that talks that much.
Work is going well. There is some catty drama here in the office. I am not surprised bring that most of us are female. That and there are so many big egos here it is nutty. I am getting really involved in breast cancer awareness though so that is a good thing. It is just shocking to me how many women there are that have it.
I am going to start training for a marathon. I want to be ready by next years rock n roll marathon.
I looked at my bank account and felt like a real live grown up. It was just the thing I needed to help feed my ego. :)
Thank God it's Friday!!!
