Dear brain...



Dear brain,

I realize you're excited about our English friends who are stopping by for a quick visit during their tour of the USA tonight, but that's no excuse for letting me climb into the passenger seat of my car when you know perfectly well the steering wheel is on the other side.

A quiet word at the critical moment would have saved me much embarrassment.

Yours sincerely,

Me

The savvy knows that they drive on the other side across the ocean, ergo your brain is on the other side of the ocean. It's okay, we all have senior moments.

Lol, if I'm like this now, goodness only knows what I'll be like when I reach '30' :)

Well, you'll be '30' then, won't you? ;)

Thank you. Today is a day I need humor.

BTW, digging through the glove box, pretending to search for something, could be an effective cover. If the need ever arises ...

I'm not even sure anyone else noticed, but I went a brilliant shade of red as i walked around to the other side of the car :)

Was it in front of your friends? I agree with seekerval, obviously there was something in the glovebox that was direly needed. ;)

Luckily, I was the only witness :)

Lol, I suppose I should be happy it was at least the right car :)

At least it was the right car (and yes, I am speaking from experience, one's keys do not work on someone else's no matter how long you keep trying to push them... and it's a good idea to check that there isn't a complete stranger sitting in said car looking at you as you do...)

At least you didn't drive around on the wrong side for any extended period...
