Heretofore I was going to write about an easy holiday craft. I have no idea what heretofore means, but it sounded fancy and smart and I like the way it looks so there you go. I’m keeping it.
I will write about the easy holiday craft tomorrow.
Instead, tonight, I will talk about women’s intuition.
Because mine was out in full force tonight and for a very good reason, let me tell you!
I got my hair done tonight. I have followed my hair dresser from one salon to another for years now. And then she finally got her own place. She owns it. Talk about fancy! Anywho, it’s not in the best of areas, but it’s also not in the worst of areas. It’s fine. Especially when it’s summer and stays light out until 9pm. Or when it’s summer and I go in the middle of the day as a lady of leisure. Oh, and just so you know, I don’t ever go on Saturdays because it’s Saturday and I’m busy being a lady of leisure who can’t get off the couch.
When it’s winter and it’s dark at 5pm, the area is a little . . . well, some might call it . . . okay, most people would say it’s perfectly safe, but this is me talking and I’m a big ole scaredy cat who has an irrational fear of white vans. So there you go.
It was about 6:30pm when I was leaving and I had my huge school bag (I always work while getting my hair done which completely ruins the Lady of Leisure Look that I’m going for), plus some shampoo and conditioner. Because I needed it. And my hair is a snob and does not like shampoo or conditioner from Target.
And as I was leaving, I saw a sketchy guy.
He was sketchy. And he was just walking around the parking lot. The dark parking lot.
He looked completely normal, as far as normal goes, but I got a bad vibe.
My women’s intuition went into full effect. I told myself not to spend any extra time putting my school bag and purchases into the back of my car. I told myself to just get in the car and lock the doors.
And that is what I did while simultaneously starting my car.
And then guess what happened? As I was sliding my humongous bag across my lap to sit it on the passenger seat, SOMEONE KNOCKED ON MY WINDOW!
