3 stories...

Wow, I'm impressed, three exciting things have happened in the last few days. So I feel like a little story-telling, and I'll tell them in order of most exciting last, and actually the order that they happened...



On Monday, I was working the drive-thru, and this guy comes up in his truck and gives his order, and I'm chipper and perky as usual (or as I try to be), and when I ask him if there's anything else I can get him (besides his Frappuccino), he says, "Just your phone number." I wasn't sure I heard him right, or if he was joking or how I should remotely respond to that, so I didn't, but when he got up to the window, I gave him his drink, and he asked when I was going to go out with him. I started laughing because no one's ever asked me out in the drive-through before. Granted I haven't been working there that long, but still. I found it a little odd, and a bit unnerving. So he said he'd pick me up the next night for our date, and drove off. I'm still kinda "Wait, what?" about it, but I'm thinking if he comes back I'm going to say I'll go out with him. He wasn't bad looking, and if he's crazy enough to just ask like that, it should at least be fun.



Then, yesterday, Wednesday, I was enduring the second day of a Migraine. My first one since January, but this is the first one I've had that's actually lasted more than one day. I think it's stress/tension related. At any rate, I left early from work: I went home around 8, when I was scheduled around 9:30. I was able to go home that early because they've got us closing early to install ovens for the stupid breakfast sandwiches, plus there was a new guy, so they had 4 people besides me for the closing. So no huge deal. On the way home, I had to stop and get gas because my tank was almost empty. I probably could have made it into work today, but I just didn't want to push it, and didn't want to try to figure out how much gas I had left because my head was hurting. So I went to the gas station, put my money in and tried to pump my gas. I don't know why, but I couldn't get the pump to work. For those of you not in California, we have pressure switches on the nozzles that tells the pump that it's actually in the tank, so you don't get the opening scene of Zoolander. At any rate, the guy inside, the attendant, had to come out and help me, because I couldn't figure it out, my head was throbbing so much. The guy on the pump next to mine could see I was having a rough night, and as he was leaving, he said, "Here, take this, it'll make it a little better." I didn't know what else to do, so I took it, 'it' being a bright red lollipop. After he left, I got in my car and drove off. Exciting? Wait, it gets better. As I was driving away, I had to wait for a light to change and took the chance to examine my candy. On the label it had a picture of a cannabis leaf and medical warning to keep out of reach of children. Strawberry Banana flavored pot lollipop. Oh. My. God. It's in the trash can already. I probably should have done something else with it, but I don't know what, and it's already out there....



The most exciting thing that happened, didn't even happen to me. It just kinda happened while I was there. I was on my lunch break today, and went to a taco stand that's up the street from work (great food, and super cheap). Across the street from them is a car wash place (one of the ones where you feed it quarters and then do it yourself) and across the side street (still across from the taco place) is an auto sound place. I was almost to the food place, when I head a bang. It sounded like a car hitting something, so I turned to look. It had definitely come from the car wash place, and I was trying to look and see what it was, when suddenly, a car comes flying out of the car wash into the side of the auto sound place. The vehicle must have been going at least 45 or 50 miles per hour. It was as if someone had just stuck a brick on the gas pedal, or gotten the gas and brake mixed up, and floored it. It was completely crazy. I only had half an hour on my break, so I got my food before I got a good look at what had happened, but when I finally saw where the car hit the building, I was saying, "Holy Sh*t!" a lot. The car was 3 feet off the ground because it had hit the curb before implanting itself in the wall. It was also buried all the way to the rear window. I'm not sure what kind of vehicle it was, but it was something kinda cheap/sporty. You know the category I'm talking about. The cars in the $15-25k range that parents buy for their kids. I almost took a picture of it, I was so amazed, but I figured that would be REALLY tacky, and none of my business.



Question of the Day: What has happened that's fun in your life?
