The plan was to go to the phone store to talk about some different options for my cell phone service. Instead of going to the store by my apartment, I decided to go to the store I originally got my phone at. It's about 30 minutes away but I really like the people there.
Anyway, I get there and...... it's gone. Granted I hadn't been there in a while but still. Poof! Gone.
I drove through a couple strip malls in the area to see if it had moved. It hadn't. So frustrated, I decided to go to Half Price Books to see if they had a couple things on my reading list. They didn't have what I was looking for but the nice girl there called another store which did have one book I wanted. So I had them hold it for me and headed south to pick it up.
On the way I got a phone call, so when I got to the store I sat in the parking lot talking for a bit, after which I went in the store to ask for my book. Well my name was on "a" book, but not the one I'd reserved. Not even close! Fortunately they had what I wanted on the shelf so I got it. Then as I headed out to my car I realized that the keys were.... locked in the car. Yeah, I'd set them on the seat next to me while talking on the phone and conveniently left them there when I got out of the car. Grrrr!
So I called my daughter who came and got me and took me back to my place to get the other key. Since she was nice enough to come get me, I bought her a couple movies, and as I was checking out I decided to get the "wrong" book that had my name on it. It's called Emotional Intelligence 2.0 and I figured since I've been dealing with tons of emotional stuff lately I better get it!
I started reading it to Donna on the way to get my keys and I think it will be pretty good. She liked it too so I'll pass it on when I'm done. Anyway, we got the other key and she dropped me back off at my car. By this time the phone store nearby was closed so I just headed home.
But I gotta wonder... what's the deal? Was I really supposed to go running all around town to NOT deal with my phone but to get a book that I "might' need to read? Who knows. The world sure can be mysterious at times.
