I received an email today from a fun friend I only hear from occasionally. She related something that happened to her recently, and I begged her to share it here on CeCeCantSleep. It just made me giggle.
Names and places have been changed to protect her identity should she choose to run for public office in the future.
Due in March with the long awaited baby #3, my friend, hmmm let's call her Toluca, is measuring a little larger than expected given how far along she is. My opinion is.. that she is not measuring larger than normal, it's just a mistake in calculation. I think she's probably farther along than they are telling her. (That's always what I told myself!!!)
here you are..
I can laugh now.
I went to lunch with a good friend today. We were at the mall, so I
parked where I always do, so I know where to find my car when I am
done. I parked, had a wonderful lunch and visit. When I got back to
my car, the car parked next to me was on the line. I reached in
(lucky I have long arms) and opened my car door, thinking to myself,
dang, this is going to be a tight squeeze. As I try to get in there,
first straight in, then sideways, NO CHANCE!
My sister, Delilah, just happened to call at that moment and I was
freaking out. I needed to get home to pick up Marvin from school and I
can't get into my car. Delilah is laughing hysterically and I am
starting to giggle, but I am feeling the pressure of needing to be home.
I start looking for anyone to help me, a couple of 18 year olds with
major attitude, don't even acknowledge me, a couple of teenage boys,
same thing. I am ready to go get the "security guard" at Target and
ask him to pull my car out, when this cute, LITTLE, mom pushing a
stroller appears. I gently ask if she could help me. Explain my
mortifying situation and she tries not to laugh, but she can't really
help it. She even has to squeeze sideways in and as she is
squeezing, this big guy in a bigger truck pulls up and asks if we are
leaving. I turn to him and say, "I'm trying!" He sees what is going
on and sits and waits.
By the time I get in the car, I am laughing out loud, tears running
down my cheeks because it is the best story ever, and the most
Big with baby,
