Inspiration Wednesday

Hey it's THAT day again.....WOOT WOOT! Yes, it's hump day, but it is also Inspiration Wednesday with My Creative Time. The inspiration for my card today is kind of a long story. Kind of funny too. So if you feel like reading, here it goes.

Many of you may know I've been "car-less" for a long, long time. Some of you may even know I FINALLY got my own wheels again recently. Fast forward to this past Saturday night. Stopped to get gas at a spot I had not been before. Can't get the pump to turn on. Go up to the booth and can't find the window. Wander around the little glass encased building thinking surely someone will help me out. Nobody to be seen. Continue wandering around the building.  {stop laughing!} Mind you, other customers are probably thinking they should keep their distance from that crazy lady over there. And, of course, not a single person will help me. When suddenly a lady in an orange reflector vest pops up and asks if she can help me. Tells me to go to the window. I see no window -- except for all the glass windows around the whole building. But where the *&@# is the "window" window? Still can't see it. She doesn't help me out by pointing the way or telling me where it is, she just laughs. {gee thanks} I apologize and tell her I'm new here and don't know how it all works and finally find the *&@# window. {I was too flustered to be embarrassed.} Well, FINALLY I get gas in the car, pay at the "window", all while entertaining the gas station lady and the customers, and then drive off.

After I get home and put groceries away {it was at night, dark, and Saturday} it occurs to's Saturday night. I look like an idiot wandering around the gas shack, and probably sound like one too. OMG I BET SHE THOUGHT I WAS DRUNK!!! GAAAHHHH!!! Talking with bestie I tell her this and her reaction..... "it would have been so funny if she had called the police!" Um. No.

Thus my card with the boozy face. :) Enjoy.
