Learned my lesson...
I have a confession! I have now proven my absentmindedness..or my blondeness depending on who you are talking to, for the second time. It seems like since I had Ava Kate my brain cells are slowly evaporating:) Thats my excuse...but whatever it is of the three it has been confirmed yet again.
We were going out to eat with Roy's dad and I was putting AK in the car. I ALWAYS have my phone with me...a habit I just can't seem to kick after Roy's deployments. So I get her loaded and settle in and we head out. (With Roy's dad right behind us) We turn off our quiet little street to the main road ...4 lanes... and hear something funny like a rock or something. Roy says "What was that?" Me..."Dunno!" Roy..." Where's your phone?" Me..."Um...I don't know?" Needless to say...for those of you who are still reading this since you know where this is going and are probably falling on the floor laughing by now ... it was indeed my phone. I look in the rear view mirror in time to see it go FLYING off the top of the car, hit the ground, fly into all its little pieces and Roy's dad swerving to miss it all.
At this point I am as low as I can get in my seat and begging Roy to just keep going. I had the foresight to get insurance so just go. But he and his dad whip over to the side of the road and as Roy says play "frogger" to get all the pieces on it. They get them... Roy is putting it back together and he gets in and hands it to me...I push the power button and sit a minute... on it comes as good as before. It is a little worse for the wear...I would show you but my computer won't recognize me camera card right now (lovely) so I will find you a stock picture. I cannot belive it still works like new.It has a rubber cover and a screen cover on it. This kept it safe I think:)
You see...not long ago...like maybe 10 months ago...I did the same thing with my other blackberry. As in I put it on top of the car and we took off, down a different road mind you, and it fell off in the middle of the intersection. It took us thirty minutes to find it because I thought it had fallen off in the ditch. When we gave up and went to leave there it was. Perfectly fine, not a scratch on it. So yes, I did not learn my lesson after the first time. Yes I am a total blonde sometimes and yes I think my brain cells are evaporating, it is the only logical explanation.
Lordy! Let my day go smoothly today:) I don't think I can handle any more!
