Oh, Where is My Mailbox?

just another reason why you should never leave your house in your pajamas

to drop off your child at class.
even when you are certain that you will not have to leave your vehicle,

because there is no way that there will have been a school bus that crashed into your mailbox**

 and the accident will certainly not be being investigated at the end of your drive,

with not only the school bus driver, and the two other cars involved,

but also the police officer

who would like you to identify and retrieve your mailbox and contents that are spewed all over the ditch.


nothing like that could happen.

causing you to seriously regret your decision to leave the house in only jammies and slippers.

oh, and a headband.

forget clean underwear, it would have been nice to be wearing ANY underwear.

tmi(too much information), i know.

but it is important to me that this experience not be wasted.
please, learn from my mistake. please.

*at the beginning of the post I wrote this was 'just another reason...' because I know you all have experienced something like this, right? I need to feel better right now, so please share your 'reason'/experience with me. let's commiserate together,when did you leave the house under dressed and regretted it?  :)*

** I should also assure you all that no one was injured in the crash. from the looks of it, there were no school kiddos on the bus at the time of the crash. and the other drivers in the other cars were fine and probably snickering at my slippers**

Yes, I too routinely drive Taylor to the bus-stop - a mere 1/4 mile walk from home round-trip - and I do so in my warm fuzzy bathrobe and slippers (and that's all - TMI back at ya!) - and then there was the day when the good-looking neighbor came to the suburban window and peered in until I had to roll down the window - with my non-make-up'd face, bed-head, and coffee breath - while he kindly asked if I could get his son off the bus in the afternoon - with the Orbit gum gleam in his big perfect smile... I quickly said yes and rolled up the window and thought, THIS is why you should get up early and be ready for your day BEFORE the kids roll out the door... but alas, the bathrobe is still my daily drive wardrobe... I will learn though...

LOL. Well at this point in my life I'm too vain to leave my house underdressed or under-makeup-ed... :)
