I am somewhat of a loose cannon. I'm known as someone who doesn't always have a filter, although I'm trying to work on that. Sometimes, I say things, and then wrinkle my brow at my own self. Where did that come from?
Let's take today for example, shall we?
I had to go to court today. I was involved in a car accident, and the other driver was ticketed. The other driver fought it, and we ended up in court today. It was a court system in a city that is unfamiliar to me, although I visit the city often – but I've never been to court there. So after dropping my kids in school, I drove to the other city.
In retrospect, I should've taken the light rail system. It would have dropped me right there. But I drove in case the court case took longer than I thought it would, and I needed to have somewhere to sit for lunch. My thinking was, should the court cases take longer, past the middle of the day, I could have lunch, and then return to the court room.
Sometimes, I actually do think. At least when it comes to eating. My mind is always RIGHT THERE when we are discussing foods.
I realized the night before, though, that there was a lot of construction going on in the vicinity of the court/jail, and I was unsure of where I needed to park. I asked on Facebook, and the consensus was to park in the mall parking and walk over. So I did. What I thought was a block away - was more like five. And it was pretty cold today, and the wind was whipping.
Across the street, across another street, walk down the street, across the third. I saw a police officer, and stopped to ask for directions. There was another woman there, and we both discovered that we were going to the same place. So we started walking together, and she said something to me about how chilly it was today.
And then it happened. My filterless brain kicked in, and I said, "it sure is chilly out here. This wind is nuts – and I've really got to pee something fierce. If I've got to walk too much longer, it's not going to be any fun, I can tell you THAT MUCH."
Which is how, sadly, I ended up walking into the court room all alone.
ME SO KLASSY.
