Topic: my daily problem for today
Friends, Romans, countrymen, and, most especially, poor stood up Marion:
The description for this section says it is a place to discuss daily problems so I suppose this is the most appropriate place but perhaps we need to add a new section for those who have completely lost their mind.
This was my daily problem for today:
At about 4pm, Marion called me to say her plane had landed and I did not pick up the phone because I was in the shower. When next Marion tried to phone me, I picked it up a little frantically, as I was only about halfway transformed into Cleopatra and was going through all sorts of old jewelry looking for bracelets and necklaces that would completely transform me into Cleopatra as I was attending my friend's 40th Birthday/Halloween party.
The connection was bad but I soon realized it was Marion and said: Oh, yes, Marion you are calling to confirm, yes, I can still pick you up at the airport, yes, yes, tomorrow at 4pm. That is when Marion said: No, I am here now. And I thought, now, she is here now, and I am Cleopatra right now, well, Cleopatra-ish as I am still working on that. And Marion is here today, not tomorrow, she is at the airport waiting for you to pick her up and take her to dinner. That is when Marion said: It's ok, Patty, I will take a cab, I need to get organized for the conference anyway, it is better for me this way.
So the moral of the story is, if you ever visit Chicago, call me. And if I offer to pick you up at the airport, make plan B. Marion and I made plan B so we will see each other tomorrow since, of course, I am available.
Mental note to self: Do not go to airport tomorrow, Marion is not there, she is at the hotel.
