I was jinxed.

I would first like to thank my friend Kelly who is on vacation with her boyfriend and his family in Greece right now. And second, I would like to thank my husband for his nasty habit of leaving the rear-view mirror light on in my car ALL THE TIME. :) (Love you babe)

Alright, so last week my friend Kelly and I went shopping on our lunch break because she needed a few things before her trip to Greece. Earlier that morning she had mentioned that her car barely started on her way to work, but we both thought nothing of it, and went along with our day.

Keep in mind I live in Texas, and it is SMOLDERING hot right now...I do believe my car said 111 degrees the other day (obviously it's not THAT hot, but it's def. over 100). We get in the car, and already running a little behind, and "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK." Our eyes grew wide, and again, "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK."

Yup, you guessed it! A dead battery. After a few laughs, sweat dripping from our foreheads, and a phone call later, her boyfriend came to pick us up. I know, REAL eventful story huh? Well, the reason I find this hilarious is because she said, "Well, I guess SOMETHING had to happen before vacation..." And I said, "What do you mean?" And she said, "Something always happens to a person right before their vacation. Something pricey, or something REALLY inconvenient. Just wait, something will happen to you too." Trying to shake off that comment, I told her, "Don't say that! You just jinxed me!"

Last night, we had some errands to tend to, and got home past dark. After a few hours inside, I THANKFULLY needed to go out to my car again, and come to find out, hubs had left my light on in the car. However, it started up fine this morning.

Well, here I am today, goin' about my business, working, and had a HUGE to-do list to knock out on my lunch break. My boss had asked me to go to lunch, but I had to decline because I needed to run so many errands that I wouldn't have time for tonight or tomorrow. My boss goes to lunch, and I go about an hour later. I go outside, put my key in my car, and...

"CLICK, CLICK, CLICK. Are you freaking serious right now!? CLICK, CLICK, CLICK. Noooooo! Stupid car, work! I just got you a new battery a few months ago, you ungrateful piece of crap! LOL...CLICK, CLICK, CLICK. Sighhhhhhhhhhhh. CLICK, CLICK, CLICK."

I went back to my building, trying to figure out how I was going to get it to start, about all the things I needed to do, and how much money this was going to cost.

Thankfully, my boss got some jumper cables, and it started.

However, I won't know the results until I get off of work and try to start my car again. So, please keep your fingers crossed this isn't going to cost an arm and a leg. Ugh...I really hope it's JUST the battery. I can't believe my friend JINXED me like that :) I can't wait to tell her all about it though. LOL. I'm sure she will laugh her rear-end off!

I'm sorry for the long pointless story, but I just thought it was crazy that the same thing happened to her RIGHT before her vacation, and now the same thing happened to me RIGHT before my vacation.

On a lighter note: A co-worker of mine today sent me this funny e-mail, so I thought I would share it with y'all.

SPAGHETTI

A man was having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child... If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, And write 'Spaghetti' on the back. He would then arrange for the Child support payment to begin.


One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. "Honey," she said, "You received a very strange post card today." "Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later," he said. The wife watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.


On the card was written:


"Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.


Three with meatballs, two without.


Send extra sauce."




Bahahaha. That's what you get CHEATER! :)

Happy Thursday ♥
