Where Is It???

What you ask? I'm searching for my brain, of course. I seem to have misplaced it somewhere and no, the pain meds have not affected the brain, at least not today. I haven't had anything but aspirin for two days now and that seems to be working okay, for now.

Anyhoo, let me explain why I truly think I've lost my mind . . . ESPECIALLY today (as you can imagine, I have this feeling often but DEFINITELY today). What happened, you ask? Well, this morning I had loaded the car with the essentials for my hour+ drive to work. Just to break the mundaneness of commuting on the bus and train, I usually drive on Friday, plus it gives me a chance to run a few errands!

I was about halfway to my destination when all of a sudden I realized and then looked down to confirm and, yes it was true, I had left home without my left shoe!!! I had put my walking boot in the car and everything else I needed, walked back into the house in my "stocking feet" to set the alarm and then I jumped into the SUV, opened the garage door, and was on my way. I had decided to drive today without my boot since yesterday (had to drive then because of a dentist appointment), I narrowly missed causing a rear-end wreck because the boot was stuck on the gas pedal and the brake pedal. Lesson learned - do not drive with God awful boot on foot.

So, of course, I had to turn around and go back home to retrieve my shoe. What is normally an hour+ commute turned into 2+ hours. UGH - I hate it!! As much as this was a pain in the "patooty", I just thank God I wasn't on the bus as there is no turning back on that thing. Can you imagine how that would have ended?

Anyway, happy Friday everyone - it's got to get better from here, don't you think? Pin It

You know, as strange as it sounds, I can imagine myself doing exactly the same thing under similar circumstances.

I once got to work with a blue shoe on one foot and a black one on the other. (I had two identical pairs in different colors) I didn't realize it until about an hour into the work day, and even then a co-worker had to point it out to me. It took me a while to live that one down.

LOL! I always keep an extra pair of shoes in my car - well I say that, but I have a bad habit of taking my shoes off in the car and just leaving them in there (yes even when I drive).

I've got you beat on that one. I've done that more than once! I have several pairs of identical shoes in different colors.

I was able to discern the color variation in the navy and black pair on my own, but the black and chocolate brown pair was pointed out to me by co-workers while walking to lunch one sunny day! My boss just looked at me... shaking his head.
