i haven't bought a tangible CD in a long time. i'm not a digital music champion--just can't find any of the stuff i like for sale anywhere nearby. ali reminded me about patty griffin's new release & i thought, "surely, best buy! surely." so this morning, on our way to the airport, i asked mom if she'd mind a quick stop (so much easier when someone is around to stay in the car with the kids) & she said that'd be fine.
as we're pulling up, i verbally said, "i know it says 'bestbuy.com purchase parking only', but i'm parking there. no one is ever in that spot. and i did look on the web page last night. 3 minutes." i opened the door, stepped out, started walking toward the entrance.
"CARON! CARON! CARON! AAAH!" mom shouted from the car. "WE'RE ROLLING!" guess i forgot to put the car in "park"...and the large, gifted-to-us suburban ran right over that 'bestbuy.com purchase parking' sign. thankfully there weren't any cars in front of me & the sign wasn't bolted to the ground. so i backed up, picked the sign up & placed it on some landscape rocks, & laughed my way around the store.
friends, this is just another fun example to remind us all of something...but i'm not sure what. these things always happen to me: just when i think i can do whatever i wanna do...i run over a sign (or something). happy friday!
