Christmas Challenge - Day 1
So last night my boyfriend and I went over some friends house for a crab dinner.
Hold on, let me back up. First of all, BEFORE dinner, I was at work. My second day. And it was AWFUL! I'm sure I'm exaggerating but I felt like a complete mess. My job entails picking students up, hanging out at The Braille Institute and dropping them off at their homes after their activities. A job consisting of mostly driving for a person directionally challenged like myself is just plain wrong.
Anyways, I was dropping 2 students off at their respective homes, both places I have never been before. So I plugged the first address into my trusty iphone... bee bo beebo beep... and off we went. Drive. Drive. Drive. Drop off.
Second child, plug in address...bee bo beebo beep. Drive. Drive. Drive. Answer questions. Drive. Drive. Drive. Answer more questions. Drive. Drive. Ask important question. Stop. Check Address. Plug in new address... bee bo blah...Turn Around. Check dying phone. Drive. Drive. Drive. Drive. Drive. Drop off.
Not so successful.
Any guesses as to what question I asked....?
Me: You live in Santee correct?
LittleMissQuestionPants: No. I live in Lemon Grove. Are we lost?
Me: No *looks down at dead battery on her phone* we'll be fine.
LittleMissQuestionPants: Are you sure? Now I'm getting nervous.
In the end she made it home safe and sound... not before asking me a MILLION questions along the way. Here are a sampling:
"What color do you think oil is under a microscope?"
"Who is Buddah?"
"Do planes and cars use the same kind of gas?"
"Do you believe people are put here for good or are all people just bad?"
"How many gallons of gas do we get from one dinosaur?"
"What is the Industrial Revolution?"
"Wouldn't it have been better if there wasn't the big oil spill?"
"Don't you think everything would be better if we just had world peace?"
*waiting for me to finish my last successful phone call on a dying phone*
"Can we keep talking now?"
That last successful phone call was to my boyfriend saying "SCREW DINNER AT SHAUN AND BETTY'S! I'm going home to cry."
Well needless to say I didn't do that. I sucked it up, mostly because I wanted a hug.
When I got there my boyfriend was just finishing up preparing dinner. He was SO proud to show it to me. He said "Look honey, it's made in a muffin pan!"
Alright, I gatta give my man some credit. They looked ABSURD but they tasted AMAZING! Crabby, mushroomy, cheesy goodness. *tear* My first muffin pan prodigy.
It was the perfect ending for my horrible day. Crab for the crab!
