Do you ever get that feeling like you are living in the Twilight Zone? Yesterday was definitely one of those days. It started off normal enough. Well, normal for me anyway. I got up, got "Alberquando" on the school bus and started to clean the kitchen. I hadn't slept very well the night before and decided to lay down on the sofa for 15 minutes. I had a doctor's appointment at 11:00 and it was about 8:30 so I had plenty of time. I set the timer, laid down, and was out like a rock. (Out like a rock? I don't know. That's what people say.) Anyway, the timer probably went off. I wonder how long it rang before it just gave up. I woke up at 10:00. It takes 30 minutes to get to the doctor's office. That gave me 30 minutes to change from "just woke up and look like something the cat dragged in...or the dog since we don't have a cat" to someone that at least wouldn't scare off the entire medical community.
Somehow I got ready on time...whew.
So I'm rushing to put the dog on her cable before I walk out the door. I double check the calendar and my appointment wasn't until11:30! (shoot, I could have slept longer!)
Since I had some extra time I sat down at the computer. Just 5 minutes. How did 5 minutes turn into 30 so quickly!!
After the doctor's appointment I stopped at Fas Mart, a convenience store, to get gas for the car. I went inside to pay. The clerk had a cigarette burning in the ashtray and as I was getting out the money, he had inadvertently rested his arm over the cigarette and the next thing you knew his arm was on fire! He started screaming and running around. I tried to stop him...HELLO!....STOP, DROP and ROLL! He wouldn't stop and ran out the door. A policeman was out there. The man went running towards the policeman. He was screaming and waving his arms. Finally the policeman and I got to him, threw him down and got the fire extinguished. The policeman went to his car and made a call on his radio. I expected the ambulance to be arriving any moment but instead, the policeman grabbed the man by his good arm, put him in the back of the police car and arrested him!!
The charges???? Waving a Fire Arm at a Police Officer.....
Have a great day! ; )
