So Worth It

 I saw this add on Craigslist:


I have been wanting one for a while 
& the price was amazing, 
so, I emailed hoping I'd be the first to respond.

& then I waited...

nothing.

The next morning I texted the number.

He replied right away:

Tons of responses 
but no one seems in a hurry to come & get it.

I replied,
"I'll come right now!"

He said great.
He sent me his address to which I replied:


I HAD been on the way to drop my kids at church, my husband was 5 minutes behind me in another car.

I dropped the kids at their classes & called Kelly telling him I was making a mad dash for the table.  Then, as an after thought I texted him this before I pulled out of the parking lot:

& as I heard the sent message swoop sound, 
I noticed the craigslist guy's number at the top of my screen.

Oh no!  
I sent it to him!

I fumbled to send this:


No reply.

I drove 40 minutes in a terrible pouring rain
with lil' Kit asleep in the back, checking my phone at stoplights & 
the guy was NOT replying...

I was so nervous!
He didn't seem to nice in the first place.

5 minutes before I get to his house :


Phew...

He didn't lock me out...
But I was right about the not so nice ...

"So, you got my message huh?" I laughed.

He smiled for a fourth of a second with his mouth & not his eyes, took one look at the monsoon & said, 
"You don't need help with that do ya?"

"No.  
Thanks for the table."

Door shut.

But, I love it...
& they do too.



Making a total fool of myself,
.....so worth it!

I wish I could say that was a first but my friends Ashley & Mendie seem to get the wrong texts from me often, 
& my poor girlfriend Kelley...

...gets texts intended for my husband Kelly all the time.
Some girls never learn

Have you ever send text to the wrong person?

Ian so laughing out loud!! You kill me sometimes! We really need to live next to each other! Actually I would have gone with you and we would have created this whole story about the craigslist .......you know the word!
You started my morning off with a good laugh! And I should be cleaning cabins!
Thanks! Glad you didn't die! I would have missed your funny stories!

LOL, oh my gosh, I would have died. That's so funny. Too bad he didn't think so... But you are right, that table was very much worth it. I not only have sent texts to the wrong person, but I have sent work emails. Thankfully none were too personal (or horrible) that I got in trouble for them. :-)
