That red spot in the middle of my forehead

January 24th, 2008 · 6 Comments · Family Life

Yesterday morning I had to be in Court at 9:45. I hate that particular time slot. I really don’t have time to go to my office and get anything done before I have to leave again. It’s really too late to stay at home.

So I drank my coffee on the way to my office. I couldn’t find my file before I left last night so I had to stop and have my secretary/assistant find it. I sat my empty plastic to-go cup on the dashboard of my car and parked at a meter in front of my office.

Cause, you know, I can walk 2.33 miles in 45 minutes on the treadmill. And haul my ass the ten minute drive to the health club to do it. But god forbid I walk the four blocks from my office to the Courthouse! This morning it was too cold. I think it was 23 when I left for work. Other times it’s too hot. And I hate arriving at court all sweaty.

So my secretary/assistant finds the file. Apparently when I’d given it to her two weeks ago to put away, she mis-filed it. She kind of shrugged her shoulders and told me she couldn’t find it this morning. I suggested she just start looking at all the files in the drawer. I didn’t mean to sound bitchy but damn woman! I need that file to go to court and YOU put it away.

So anyway. I have my file and I head out to my car to go to Court. And as I pulled away, my empty to-go coffee mug, came flying off my dashboard and plunked me right in the middle of the forehead. I couldn’t have done it better if I’d tried.

I was just glad I hadn’t switched to the stainless steel to-go coffee mug I’d been thinking about buying.

    Ouch. But at least it was empty so you didn’t end up with coffee all over your outfit. (That’s what would have happened to me, no doubt!)

    Actually that has happened to me. And I think it was the point when I started this entry and I lost it somewhere along the way. Thanks!

    Some days are just like that – a blunt force injury to the forehead all before 10 a.m.

    Sorry, but that is a bit funny!!! It didn’t spill on you I hope!

    Well at least you’re laughing about it. That is laughter I hear right?

    Ouch. Oh, and I am totally lazy like that too. If it’s cold, forget it. And I *despise* showing up somewhere sweaty. Bleck.
