I talked to my new editor yesterday and REALLY like her! It was such a pleasant experience. I’ve generally had amazing luck with editors and that luck is continuing, it seems. I’m so happy there.
This is a quickie story. On Monday Wizard left work and arrived at BLB’s doctors office at a quarter to nine. The appointment was at 9:10
BLB and I had left early, but I neglected to map the route. I was pretty sure I remembered.
In my defense I have a lot on my mind. I mean A LOT.
Finally, BLB says, “Mom, you realized you passed turn off. A long time ago. We somehow missed it.”
I’ve known for a couple miles but I’m excellent at denial. But I was busted so I owned up, “Yes. Call the office and ask them for the right street.”
“I’ll map it on my Droid GPS.”
I’m thinking, Damn it, if I only had my Siri! But refrained from saying that, got off the freeway and turned around.
BLB’s phone rings.
“Dont answer that!” I said.
He rolls his eyes, and answers, “Hi Dad. Yeah, we’ve turned around. Of course she’s lost.”
“I’m not lost. I know where I am, I just don’t know where the stupid exit is.” Seriously, I knew exactly where I was.
Wizard says, “Tell me where you are, I’ll get you here.”
I kept my mouth closed, but BLB blabbed and told him where we were. Wizard told us exactly how to get there and we made it in plenty of time. We pull up, and there is Wizard, standing by his car and smirking. I didn’t even bother to ask, but BLB did. “How did you know?”
Wizard laughed. “Your Mom wasn’t here by ten minutes to nine. She’s compulsively early, especially when it comes to something this serious. And I knew she’d never see that offramp, it’s hidden. So I rescued her. Again. It’s what I do.”
Damn it. He’s not wrong.
