Back at the 3 point contest: I was so tired, I wasn't myself. We loaded the car to head the 1.5 miles to the competition and I decided to heat up my muffin. I live in fear of not having food. What if Reg advanced and we were there longer than anticipated? I ran to the kitchen area and cooked my frozen muffin in the microwave.
We got to the venue. My trusty water bottle was not in my drink holder. I'd left it at the hotel, next to the microwave. Coach and the kids hopped out and I drove back to claim it. We had plenty of time before the competition.
I ran inside. It wasn't there. I asked at the desk if someone turned it in. They hadn't. Who would want someone else's water bottle? Gross.
|Remember my water bottle? RIP. It had my college sticker on it. Who would want it? Thank goodness for Amazon. A replacement arrived the next day for $20. I need to repurchase a sticker for it.|
I raced back to the car, and couldn't get the valet key thing open to get the key out. The clicker doesn't work anymore. I couldn't get into my car. Panic mode - me, not my car's panic button.
I ran inside, bumped into a janitor, asked for help. Maybe a tool to break open the valet thing? As he was fumbling with it, I noticed that the key was on the ring ALREADY out of the valet. These were Coach's keys, not mine. My key stays in the valet piece. No wonder it wouldn't pop the key out - it wasn't in there. Sheesh, embarrassing.
It was crazy cold. I drove back to the stadium, waited in line at security. They wouldn't let me in because I was carrying my new purse. I had to ditch my purse in my car. (FREEZING OUT). Clear purses only.
I wanted to say, HEY, I JUST DID A POST ABOUT PURSES AND NO ONE SUGGESTED A CLEAR PURSE. YOU ARE NOT TREND SETTERS. HMPF.
My wallet - not allowed. I grabbed my credit card, a protein bar, and emptied a water bottle so I could fill it up inside. I emptied my pockets before walking through security and STILL set off the beeper. They had to check me with a wand. I was very close to taking that wand . . . well, I finally was allowed to enter and no one ended up with a security wand inserted where the sun don't shine. Coach hadn't thought to tell me I couldn't bring my purse in. I was in tears by the time I got near our seats. Evidence: I need my sleep.
What have you left at a hotel? What dumb things do you do when you have been sleep deprived?
