So today, while out with my Little Sister, I locked us out of my car. It was at the end of our day; we had stopped by Domino's to pick up a pizza for her to take home (she had a coupon from school). While she was waited inside for her pizza, I went out to my car to clean it out and wipe down the interior, something I'd been meaning to do for a few days. I was quite proud of my multi-tasking and time-saving, actually.
Until my hip hit the door, slamming it shut. Not a big deal--until I tried to open it and realized it was locked. (I must have hit the lock button as I was cleaning the door.) I peered in and, sure enough, spotted my keys on the passenger seat. I used a few choice words to express my irritation and went back inside.
"Oooooooooooo, Miss Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen," said Rachel. "You said a bad wooooooooooord."
"Nuh-uh," I bluffed.
"Yeah, you did," she said. "You said the S word THREE TIMES. And then you pulled on the door handle--"she acted it out--"and then you said it AGAIN!"
(At this point, the Domino's guys--pizza maker, drivers, cashier--were cracking up. "Oooh, Miss Jeeeen," one of them said. I glared at him.)
"You could NOT have heard that from in here," I answered, realizing that I was busted.
"I read your lips," she said proudly. "But at least you didn't say the F word. If you did, it would have looked like THIS." And again she demonstrated--which sent the guys into another round of laughter.
Now the bitch of it is, we were only like 4 miles from my house, where I had a spare key. However--OF COURSE--this was a day that I forgot my cell phone--and I don't have my roommate's number memorized. Luckily, Kia offers free roadside assistance for like 3 years (shout out to Kia--holla!), and one of the guys let me use his cell phone. We only had to wait about 30 minutes for the locksmith (ironically, the amount of time for a Domino's pizza delivery). Meanwhile, Rachel set up shop at the counter, with her pizza and a 2-liter of Coke. She was actually happy as a clam.
Ah, well. It's been a while since I locked myself out. I guess I was about due.
