Let’s dig right in! I’ve had an interesting day to say the least! Please laugh with me!
My body decided to be awoken at 5:35am, a whole 55 minutes before I set my alarm! I started the day off by… I could lie and say prayers first, but as a Jesus gal, let’s go with the truth, lol. I started by grabbing my baby boo, AKA my cuddle buddy, AKA my phone! Haha, calm down… Uncle Bae is en route. I checked whatsapp, social media, and played my turn in Words with Friends. Then, oh Lord, have mercy on me… I prayed and did my devotions, Our Daily Bread for the win! Today, it talked about finding the joy in trials, knowing that it’d produce spiritual maturity. So apt for me.
I decided to add 12 minutes to the 6:30, and catch a sweet dream or two. My bestie boo text and called me to get my behind up coz she knows I drag in the morning, I was texting her laughing, saying I’ll get up whenever. I got up, got ready. Didn’t feel like breakfast, so grabbed my salad for lunch and left. Prayed as I got in the car, and listened to my Afro beats for a few minutes, then listened to an amazing woman, Senator Elizabeth Warren crush Wells Fargo CEO, John Stumpf in an intense questioning session on the Wells scam. After listening, I wished/ prayed Nigeria will start producing people with characters like Senator Warren. I went on to FaceTime aforementioned bestie. She was gisting me how a very handsome Hispanic man pulled up to her and said her tires needed air. Based on her amazing description of him, and she has high standards in the ‘looks’ department, I joked that she should have yelled back, ‘no Papi, I don’t need air, I need you!’ LOL… It was fun and games until Papi’s words came back to haunt her. She goes, omg! Summary: She had a flat tire, and with neither of us knowing anything about that, she had to pull over and StateFarm to the rescue. She’s always SO early to work, this one time, I beat her! Lol. As usual, on i20, there’s a dead dog on the highway every other day. I saw one, winced and went back to my Afro beats for the rest of my ride.Got to work to find out my boss will be out for a while, FREEDOM!!! Lol, I felt lighter in my spirit. I got some work done, had one meeting, and tried to get T-Mobile on the phone for an issue I had! Now, T-Mobile has such bad signal in my company’s building.. Three different representatives called, but before I could go to a private place with good signal, I lost them! UGH!
At 11:45, I grabbed my gym bag, and headed to the gym! I get in my cute, colorful workout clothes, ready for my cardio circuit class, excited because I increased my dumbbells from 5 to 8 lbs. Just after doing the second set, guess what happens… T-Mobile calls! I leave the room to take the call… The room left me, in other words, when I went back to the room, my water bottle was all that was left. Back to the call, I needed a favor from T-Mobile. The last lady I spoke to sounded like an angry elephant, so I was at the point of accepting that I’d have to pay for the request. Then, uncle T-Mobile dude fell in love with my voice, and went above and beyond to help me! God bless him! The 800 number in the picture is T-Mobile.
I didn’t feel like exercising anymore, lol, so I changed back to my work clothes and proceeded to run some errands. I went on to ship some orders – yes o, baby girl is a business woman! Lol. I provide anything. Got to the post office to discover that, shoot! I forgot my wallet at work. I usually have $20 in my car, but I’d used it the last time I forgot my wallet (it happens more times than you’d imagine), so I had only $5 left. I go into UPS, they say the shipment will cost $11. I said, ‘CHAI! There is God in everything we do o!’ So, shipping not happening till after work.
Although my silly body may think she’s lactose intolerant, I have authority over my body! Therefore, I command her to still take fro-yo, and find a way to tolerate it. I wasn’t thinking dairy when I saw this fro-yo spot, but it was neatly tucked in the corner, and looked too cute to ignore! SO, I respectfully started walking towards the store. On my walk, I came across a Tokyo sushi place. I thought, “hmm, they should have bubble tea! Oh, how I’ve missed bubble tea!” Tokyo place says they don’t have bubble tea! They refer me to a place, 7 minutes away. The fro-yo want disappeared as quickly as it came, and I went in pursuit for my bubble tea. I called them to make sure the price was under $5, as that’s all I had on me. As soon as I pull in, my phone dies. I order my taro bubble tea and get directions on how to get back. I drink the hell out of this tea and chew on my tapioca. I make it safely to work, still enjoying my Afro beats. I get to work, and guess what people! My wallet wasn’t at work, it was in my gym bag, which was with me all afternoon! SMH!
I get to my desk and try to charge my phone. The charger decided to stop working. I don’t know what possessed me, but that charger got the cut… literally! I go to the fridge to get my yummy shrimp salad. You guessed right! I left my toppings and dressings at home! Luckily, I’m not hungry today, so I guess it’ll be lunch for tomorrow! It could be dinner, but I started dreaming of rice and stew, and couldn’t quite shake the ‘longer throat.’
I was laughing/ happy most of today, so I thought you know what? Instead of just taking it as another funny day, let me share with you! Please share any similar experiences you’ve had, and I look forward to coming back to a certain level of frequency.
Add me on all social media platforms @oreofetalks I look forward to connecting with you!
