Wednesday - speeding ticket. School Zone. School hours. I tried to navigate my pulled over car close enough to the police vehicle that the officer couldn't get between the cars to see our missing turn signal - and prayed he'd somehow be blinded by sun in his eyes and miss the big wound in the windshield - oh, and the hole in the passenger door. "We don't give out tickets like this," as he mimes handing me a ticket. "If you get an infraction notice in the mail next week, it will be from this event."
I stifled that question.
Thursday - missed lunch to get my body scanned - up down and sideways - I stopped at the mall to buy emergency bananas and a couple of salads at the food court. Then, I left my salads at the counter. Only cost me $8.50. Oh, and still no lunch and now no dinner.
Friday - Slow day and so I clocked out from work about 10 minutes early.
Saturday - tried (unsuccessfully) to use a Coles coupon at a Woolworth's gas station. 4 cents/ liter - 30 - some liters.
Sunday - didn't leave the house!
