I talked to one of my friends Dawn, her daughter has been sick with a stomach bug. She was going to call in a prescription for some medication. I offered to run by the store and get it and pick up some lunch.
Little did I know my 5 minute trip to the store would take and hour!!! As I got out of the car I was talking on the phone "obviously I can't do two things at once", and threw my keys in my purse, unlocked the backdoor, shut my door and went to get Ty out. But wait, the door was locked and so was the front door! I had accidental locked the door with my keys and purse inside! Meanwhile Ty is still strapped in the back seat. Great...what do I do now?!!! Luckily I was still holding my cell phone so I tried calling Dawn. She said call 911 they will send someone over to open up the car. Sounded good to me. In less than 5 minutes a policeman was there with his magic tools to get me out. He said "this won't take but 2 minutes", I was relieved since I wasn't even wearing a coat and I was waving to Ty and trying to entertain him while he watched the nice policeman open the door. Unfortunately for me I guess my car has some heavy duty security system on it so that everytime he would unlock the door the alarm would go off. There was no getting in.
Mean while I had all kinds of new friend there to see how it was going or tell me their favorite story of locking their keys in their car. Actually a friend of mine showed up, getting ready to do her shopping and offered me her coat and gloves so wouldn't freeze to death.
We proceeded to stand there for about 40 min. Then it occurred to me that my dad might be home from work. He works really strange hours. So you never know if he is home or not. I called and sure enough he was there.
Lucky for me all the planets aligned and he was able to get in my house and get a spare key.
Long story short, after almost an hour outside I was able to get in my car. I got my friends coat back to her, got Dawn's prescription and lunch! Ty even clapped when we got the door open. It was truly a miracle that he never one time cried.
So, I thought it would be another routine day, but I had a little excitement after all.
