Oldies...but Goodies!

Fort Thompson

Here's one of my Oldies...but Goodies!! Hope you enjoy!

Yup, it's natural!

Oh. my. gosh. I can't believe I'm posting this (you may find out I'm an idiot afterall, or you may get the chuckle I'm hoping for!)'s actually kind of embarrassing, but here goes.

After work tonight, I was walking to my illegally parked vehicle, slightly frightened (as I usually am) about the "dangers" that might get me (as well as the gut clenching fear that hospital security might catch me). Like always, I had my keys in hand before I even entered the parking ramp.

As I neared my car, I pointed my fob at it, pressed the unlock button and...nuthin'. Huh, that's strange. Walked a little closer, pointed, pressed...nuthin'. At this point I am outside the driver's door, pointing and pressing like there's no heart is racing, my stomach turning as I imagine bad guys lurking around the corner (with security close behind them, you know, to get me!). I'm fearing I need to make that dreaded call to security, "Yes, I know officer. I shouldn't be parked in patient see, I was running late to work, blah, blah, blah...but I can't get into my car.

"Has anyone caught on yet?

Hee,'s my blondishness totally betraying me!!I can't even believe I was such an idiot!! So, you know that fob I was pointing at the door? Ah, yeah...turns out it has a key on it. As in, a key to insert into the lock to unlock the door. Ahem.

No need to worry, my bad guys got me, I averted that call to security, jumped in the vehicle, and with a flick of my (blonde) hair I was off...pretending like that never happened! (You won't tell anyone, will you?)

  1. Great post! Too funny!

    I am thinking about you using the key as i am reading along, but i was also thinking you might say that it wasnt your car, just one that looked just like yours. I have done that before.

    Once when I went in a 7-11 I wasnt paying attention and got in the car with someone else! I mean opened the door climbed in and shut it! Looked over to my wife and she had turned into a man! LOL

    Now that was embarrassing! Poor old man thought I was gonna rob him im sure.

    Love and Prayers,


  2. hahaha! I can laugh because I've TOTALLY done that before! It's like I thought it was the end of the world...what was I gonna do if my keyfob was broken??? Oh my, how technology has changed our lives! :)

  3. OK. Once, when we had just gotten a new to us van, I drove it for the first time to the hospital for a prenatal checkup. I had never been to that hospital before and was unfamiliar with the layout of the parking lot. I left the hospital with my 2 little ones in tow and walked up to my van and tried to unlock the door. Would't unlock. (That was in the days when we only had keys) It was quite hot and I was getting flustered after a few minutes of trying this out. Just as I was getting ready to haul everyone back into the hospital to call my hubby (that was before cell phones, too) I pressed my face to the window and wondered how that car seat got in there. It still took a few seconds before I realized I was in the wrong parking lot and this van, while it looked just like mine, was in fact NOT.

    I won't tell if you don't.


  4. Love it,lol. you are okay though when you start to use the fob to try to open your house door or in my case use the house security fob to open the car and it won't work..thinking great I just replaced the battery and now it still doesn't work,lol. daaaah

  5. It's not a blond thing...just sayin' (That's ALL I am saying, really.)

    Had fun seeing this post! Laughed at your expense. A lot.


  6. LOL!! I do the same thing! I stand at my van wondering why the pad thing doesn't unlock my doors!
    My van only has one spot for the key, the drivers door, so if I am standing on the other side trying to get in..grrr..I have to walk all the way around to use the key!
    My next van, the clicker thing will also open the door. I wonder what I am going to do when the door doesn't open :)

  7. haha! and after reading Tim's're in good company! haha

    I also thought you were pointing it to a look-alike car... at least you're not wandering around aimlessly, trying to remember where you parked (oh, um. that would be me!)

    Blessings & aloha!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)
