Self Portrait Tuesday-Hmmm

Hmmm...2 accidents, Darth Vador breath, and 4 avocados later. Here I am. Do you ever feel like you're either the only sane person left in this world, or the most insane one? I drove a total of ten miles today to the bank and almost died twice. Okay, so I wasn't that close to dying but I just managed to avoid two accidents. As I was driving through the parking lot, this guy starts pulling out. I slammed on the breaks and leaned on the horn. To my horror, he kept coming and I was stuck. I laid on the horn and thank God he stopped with an inch between our vehicles. He opens his door and looks back dumbfounded. You mean I actually have to look before backing up? His music (and bass) were so loud I literally had to scream over them to be heard. I offered to get out of his way if only he would pull forward for a moment. Sigh.

With my heart pounding I walk into the bank and wait in line. All of a sudden (and I am not exaggerating) this lady walks up behind me and starts breathing on my neck. You all know how I am about my breathing space. No worries. I took one step forward. So did she. Again, with the loud and hot breathing. Darth Vador, back up!! Each step I took, was followed by one of hers. Ahhh.

After the bank incident, another guy cut me off and again just missed the front-end of my car. Another 'thank you God.' Do I have a target on my head today, or what. You'll be happy to hear that I made it to the market safely. I go to the check out with strawberries and Cool whip, and after ringing me up, the lady hands me a bag with four avocados it in. Uhhh....?

uhhh

I love your pictures! Very creative. Next time someone fills in your breathing space, turn around and face them. I guarantee, they'll back up!

LOL...good idea mom. I should have thought of that. But then again, she probably ate something horrible and I fret at the idea of inhaling such a smell.

P.S. what's with all the spam comments I'm gettin?
