A Funny Thing happened....

A funny thing happened to me last week.  I was on my way to church last Sunday morning and I had to stop at the store to pick up some nursery supplies.  My husband drove and chose to wait out in the car with the baby.  It took me a few minutes to locate what I needed.  I am not familiar with this particular store.  I paid the cashier and with my mind on other things I headed back out to the car.

Some of you will relate to what happened next.  You know those moments of split second registration?  Those moments when you realize that you have made a big mistake?

I opened the car door and with my bags in the air ready to put in the floorboard, I registered that this was not my seat and that was not my catfood, and more importantly the man smoking the cigarette behind the wheel was not my husband!!!!  He was looking at me rather funny.......I was looking at him rather surprised,   and just as quickly as I had opened the door, I said "OH, I'm so sorry" and I shut the door.  

I was laughing so hard by the time I crossed the parking lot and got into the IDENTICAL car that really was mine, I was unable to tell my husband what had happened.  I heard the stranger man laughing and he waved as he drove off.  I waved back.  We are bonded now you know!  I'm sure he had a good story to tell to folks the rest of the day!!

I quit laughing and crying long enough to explain why that stranger man was laughing and waving at us.  Husband and I, we laughed all the way to church and my mascara was completely gone by the time we arrived.   

 So many times this week I have thought about the looks on our faces as we realized  what was happening.  It has brought me many a merry moment!   I hope we both learned something from the whole experience........ he might lock his car door next time, and I might pay more attention to the direction in which I am parked!!  Note to self.......

I just thought I would share.  I hope this brought you a bit of laughter in your day.......even if it is at my expense!!
