Some of the reasons I can disclose to you, and some I can’t, but today was an extraordinarily bad day. It started with a doctor’s appointment in New Glarus. I print out directions which are fairly straightforward: Uh Oh! A fire truck is blocking southbound access to Hwy 151! I’m supposed to take that road! So I spend an hour wandering the backroads of southwestern Dane County before I find my way back onto the correct route. Holy shit I know nothing of Wisconsin south of County PD.
The doctor’s appointment includes some unexpected surprises including a tetnus shot and a procedure that men get once they reach a certain age. Hurray.
Next up we hit the gym: parking lot full! Park out on Mifflin you jerk! Thanks, Cap Fitness. So I park on Mifflin and as soon as I pull to the curb I realize I’m well and truly fucked. I’m downhill, and I’m too close to the car ahead of me to just pull out again. I can’t reverse because I’m sitting on 6 inches of ice because no plows have been on this street because none of these assholes ever move their cars. I floor it in reverse and burn up my back tires without moving an inch. After I take my foot off the gas my cars rolls forward until I’m 1 inch (no lie) from the back of the car in front of me. After we get out of the gym the situation has improved tremendously! Some jerk in a green VW Bug has parked right up behind me, so even if I could floor it out of there in reverse, that way is now blocked. I storm around and have a temper tantrum for awhile, and spacebee is wonderful in letting me rage at an inanimate object for 20 minutes. We finally abandon the car with a note for the police (it’s a 2 hour parking zone) that says we can’t get the fucking thing out and walk to rumthumb’s place. She graciously gives us a ride to spacebee’s so we can acquire a car, and then it’s back to my house.
Afternoon now: my tetnus shot has made me sick! Hurray! Also, there’s a Super Important Meeting at work that I’m supposed to give status at but wasn’t invited to! Hurray! And now I’m sitting in this Very Important Meeting and it seems like my attendance in the least important thing here.
I’m unsure how I’ll ever get my car back. A rational discussion of options (in the shower) did not turn up anything besides “hope the jerk in front of us drives away.” *sigh*
even saw the lights of the goodyear blimp/and it read “moneypenny is fucked”
