I <3 AAA. ( I heart AAA, or I love AAA. So my posterity knows what it means.)

So not too long ago I did a post about AAA coming to our rescue on a date.  (OK 18 days ago.)
Today I was a bit air heady and needed them once again.

I was loading my Costco kill of $120, yuck, into my trunk. ( I bought flannel sheets just for you honey.)
One box was heavy and with the keys in my hand and a hurt finger I was having trouble lifting it. Besides the fact I’m short and had to stand on my tip toes to get leverage to pick the box up. (Apparently I’m also weak.)
I dropped my keys into the trunk because the jeans I’m wearing are tight in the pocket area and it was easier to just drop them in the trunk.
I finished loading and I shut the trunk.

Oh my gosh I just shut the trunk and my keys are in there!

I called Jon at work. He was in a meeting and didn’t answer his phone.

I called my sister Kristi. I didn’t know what to do. She was home, but her car was at work from earlier that day when she almost fainted and needed Howard to pick her up because she wasn’t up to driving.

Darn it.

My mom was to be there later but we didn’t know when.
She mentioned how she has AAA and  they could open the car for me, which gives me access to the trunk release.

Wait I have AAA. They open locked cars?!?

So of course I call AAA.

Luckily I had bought a berry smoothie at Costco and the girls were occupied in sharing fighting over it while we waited. The AAA dispatcher found it funny when I was reprimanding them and telling them to share.
While we waited Lilah also said we were having a hard day. I tried to convince her it wasn’t that bad and waiting wasn’t a big deal.

I was thankful because we didn’t have to wait long and I was sitting in my car starting it 15 minutes after making the call and that includes buckling in two girls.

I <3 AAA.

On a side note. I have a pair of jeans that appears to be destined for wearing dairy products.
Last time I wore them I dropped a bagel and caught it between by hips and the counter top, cream cheese facing me. ( Yes I still ate it. My jeans were clean and why go through the trouble of trying to catch it if I’m not gonna eat it. )
Today as I ate my yogurt too much was apparently on my spoon, but it was not apparent to me until it dropped into my lap.
Now I smell like cherries.

    I’m happy you got safely home.

    You can also write a heart symbol ♥ by typing &hearts; and I think it’ll work. Let’s see.…

    You had me laughing! 😆

    On a side note, I dropped my bagel with cream cheese just about an hour ago. It landed cheese down on the carpet. Yeah, I still ate it. 😉

    I’m still not sure what to type.
    You confuse me with your computer commands.

    If you type that, you’ll get a heart. If you’ve had your Wheaties this morning, you’ll ask yourself “But you just typed &hearts; so why didn’t you get a ♥?” That’s because I actually typed &amp;hearts; where &amp; creates an & which allows me to show you what to type without the computer creating a ♥. Got it? 🙂

    Homework: How did I type &amp;hearts; ?

    These symbols are called HTML entities and there are lots of them:
