Answers to yesterday’s contest….
1) found cat poop in the corner of my bedroom
Yes, this happened yesterday morning. Buttercup is an indoor/outdoor cat and I’ve never kept a litterbox for him except last February after he was attacked by the dogs. He had to stay inside for a month while he was weak and recovering. Since then, he’s had moments when he thinks there is STILL a litterbox here somewhere…..or should be.
2) discovered I ran over a roofer’s nail and my back left tire is flat
No, this didn’t happen yesterday morning. I’m well-known for finding nails with my tires, however, so stay tuned.
3) spilled an entire cup of coffee on the pale beige living room carpet
No, this didn’t happen yesterday morning. It did happen about a month ago, though, which is why I have a carpet cleaner scheduled…….
4) run out to the high school bus in my t-shirt and underwear to get the driver to wait
Yes, this happened yesterday morning. Not that many people guessed this one, which leads me to suspect that this is EVEN CRAZIER THAN I REALIZED. The high school bus came earlier than I expected–6:15!!!! Luckily, my son had had his shower. I could see the bus turning around in the cul-de-sac in front of our house as if it was getting ready to drive away. I shouted for my son to come downstairs and I ran, YES, I RAN OUT THE DOOR, INTO THE STREET, in my t-shirt and underwear, yelling at the bus to WAIT!!!! Saving graces: the bus driver was a woman, it was still dark, there weren’t very many kids on the bus yet, and the neighbors weren’t out.
I could blame my husband who left for work without reminding me to put my pants on.:fryingpan:
5) lost my glasses
No, this didn’t happen yesterday. I do have glasses, but most people don’t realize it because I almost always wear contact lenses.
