It could have been worse

So the day started out kinda like any other except I was overly tired because of my lack of sleep the night before. I was hearing things...imagining break in noises....one day I will post my mace story....

Anyway we got up and ready to go in time and only slightly rushed. Steve was very excited for the day. Kinder graduation and the zoo what more could a kid ask for....On the way Steve had to raise his hands twice to ward of the carpool police..twice they had their lights on ready to pull me over from the side and the over pass and then backed off once he raised his hands.

On the way I realized I had forgotten my digital camera...gosh darn it anyway. I had some time before the actual graduation and dropping Steve off so I went to the store to get some one timer cameras and then to vacuum out my car. It really needed it.

I still had some time and had to use the ladies room...a perfect excuse to decide I deserved a non-fat Chai Tea from Starbucks...I have not had one in awhile. Once I got my tea it was back to the school.

I still arrived early enough that I had the pick of seats. I generally don't sit in the front of the room for ANYTHING.....But this is a big deal and I wanted to be able to see it all. I sat in front, second seat from the end leaving room for Stephanie's dad.

Long story short....with the help of someone else's balloons that I was trying to remove from my view, trying to take pictures of the kids walking on stage, flagging down Stephanie's dad and brilliantly leaving my Chai in my lap...I ended up with a lap full of tea.....Placed in such a way anyone would guess I that I had not made that stop to the ladies room and could not contain my excitement.

The good thing or the bad thing however you want to think about it, was that I had the tea long enough so that it was not hot...just warm....If it had been hot I may have reacted faster to the spill. So my decision was to either get up right then and there escaping to the rest room to clean up my spill and maybe get it dry....(probably NOT)...or sit there and watch the ceremony that was just barely getting started. I choose the second one.....two reasons I really did not want to miss even one little part of it and I did not want to stand up in front of the watching crowd to show what looked like I had peed myself.

I had to make jokes after it was all done because some of the kids were looking at me all wide eyed....I explained I had dumped my coffee and wasn't it funny because it looked like I had an accident. It made for a good laugh....

Stephanie and her dad could not make it to the zoo....He had another appointment. Of course I was not thinking or I would have suggested that Stephanie could still go with us if he was comfortable with that...but I was too self involved with my wet jeans.

He did say that they would like to go sometime so I told him that we could go this weekend if they wanted...just to give us a call. He asked for our number and since I did not have my phone he called it so we would have their number too. We do...I will never use it....at least not as a first call only to call back....

Steve and I went to the zoo after making a detour back home for a change, basically had fun....both very tired. Sleepy time now.

I've had similar experiences changing the jug for the water cooler. Occasionally the water sprays straight out when the jug is installed. I have since learned to perform this task while standing sideways.

Maybe Stephanie's dad didn't want to go to the zoo with ladies who pee on themselves. ;-)
Just kidding, I'm glad you had a good time, and thx for the story. I'm still smiling thinking about the tea...
