Getting Ready to Go
I guess I’m just like everybody else. I could do without Mondays. On the weekend, I can kick back and relax, but I dread going back to work when the weekend is over.
This morning was particularly hectic. On weeknights, I set my alarm for 7 a.m. That’s what I did last night. But, when I woke up this morning and looked at my alarm clock, it was 7:30! The alarm clock was on the fritz and it didn’t go off. Oh no, I was going to be late again.
I washed my face, put on my make-up, got dressed, and ate a small bowl of cereal. I had one foot out the door when I realized I didn’t have my keys. I went back into my bedroom and looked on the shelf where I kept them. No luck. Maybe I left them in my purse. I hunted around for them. Finally, I just dumped out everything from my purse onto my bed. I had my wallet, sunglasses, compact, lipstick, eye drops, aspirin, tissues, and my PDA. But, no keys.
I looked around the living room. Maybe they fell behind the couch cushions. I picked up each one and looked. No keys. I went into my closet and checked the pockets of my coat. Still, no keys. By this time, I was pretty frantic so I tried to calm myself down. I decided to get a drink of water. I opened the refrigerator and what did I see? My keys. They were sitting on the shelf right next to the milk. I must have left them there when I got the milk for my cereal. It served me right for being so absent- minded.
Oh, how I hate Monday mornings!
