My Little Adventure

Well that was interesting. Quite the little adventure if I must say so myself.

I had a hair appointment. In "the city". With someone I had never met before. I was a bit nervous.

So.....I leave out from work at 5:00. Plenty of time...as long as I don't get lost. I kinda knew the way to the mall....sorta. So, I drive up the highway - making good time. Turn off and take the one road I'm sure of. So far so good. I'm on the phone with Teresa when I get to a stop sign.

"Hmmmm" says Tammi. "I think I'm supposed to turn right here - but I'm not 100% sure".

Teresa: "Uh Oh."

Tammi: Ok - I'll turn, but I think I'm wrong."

I was right. There it was - THE MALL - just up the road and around the curve.

Damn - I'm almost an hour early. Didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would. So I have a choice. Sit and talk to Teresa or shop. Shop in some of my favorite stores. I talked. (surprised ya didn't I)

Anyway - the girl that did my hair is a doll!! I like her a lot. The color turned out perfect - but the cut. The cut. Well, it's short. But I think I can train her - and it will grow. Eventually. I hope.

The real adventure came getting home. There is a family crisis of sorts going on right now and my phone was going crazy. I got turned around and ended up driving all over "the city". I finally stopped and back tracked. I knew damned well it didn't take this long to get to 39.

Well shit. It was within a block of where I started.

Did I mention my hair was short? Yeah, well, it is.

I finally get home at 10:30. Poor Cody. I've got him outside. He just realized the people that live behind me have a fire going and he wants to go play. I think he's lookin' for a beer. Damned dog.

Anyway - I survived. Got a new hair stylist. (did I mention it's short?) AND I got good and lost yet found my way home.

Gee - wonder what trouble I'll find tomorrow night?!?!

Let me guess... your hair is now short?

As long as Cody recognized you, you are doing good!

How in the heck do you get lost going to the mall? You can see it from the interstate! Am I going to need to (shudder) give you my number (/shudder)in order to get directions?
