I woke up bright and early at 6:00 AM. I blame the birds outside my window. Some people call it chirping, some call it singing, and I call it death metal in the morning. Threw a pillow on top of my head, curled up, and went back to sleep. Until 11:15 AM! Now, I wasn't really intending to sleep that long. It just sort of happened.
The plan was to drive home to Wausau in time for a Father's Day cookout at 5:30, so I had three hours to get my truck packed and be on my way. After getting dressed, I quick ran down to clean out the truck. Without keys. You can imagine my surprise when I went to turn the doorknob and realized I had locked myself out of my apartment. Of course, my cell phone was inside, too.
I thought about busting out some of my Jack Bauer moves to knock the door down, but figured that would tick off the landlord. After turning the knob as hard as I could, hanging from it like a kid on the monkey bars, and saying a few choice phrases, I went around back to the garage. Of course, there were no tools to be found. Just an old washer and dryer, a ladder, some lawn mowers, and nothing of any use to me. I pulled a nail off of the wall and figured I'd try to pick my way in.
Ten minutes with the nail and I called it quits. Fortunately, my neighbor was outside raking his lawn, so I borrowed his phone and called the next best thing to 9-1-1: American Lock & Key. Over an hour later, the guy arrived with his toolbox and opened the door. And that, my friends, is how you spend $48 on stupidity.
After my door was opened, I proceeded about my day and tried to pack up for my trip to Wausau. The next thing I know, it's 6:30 and I'm just waking up from a nap I didn't intend to take. I probably would have continued sleeping soundly, but heartburn decided to be my alarm clock. Then I realized - today was the first day in 5 days that I haven't had Mac & Cheese. Must be the withdrawals.
Instead of making anything, I drove down to Festival and found Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey. It practically fell out of the freezer and into my hands, so that's what I had for dinner.
We're going to try and re-do this day tomorrow because today was an epic FAIL!
