Valet Parking

Friday, August 7th, 2009

parking

 

I was at a wedding a few weeks ago (one of many I have attended this summer).  I was looking forward to it, as the reception was being held at a very posh elite club.  Very, very fancy, shmancy……

I was thrilled to see valet parking was offered, which meant I could wear my painful, yet drop dead sexy  black stilettos, and not have to hike through a parking lot!

 Well, I pulled up…………………………sat in my car waiting for someone to come up to me.

There was a group of guests that were outside smoking, watching me.

I still sat in my car waiting for someone.  Now I felt like an idiot. Was I in the wrong place? Was I supposed to get out of my car and look for someone?  Smokers still staring at me………………….

Finally a young man slinks up, hands me a ticket, and drove off with my car. 

I felt much better now.

Attended the reception………..pretty much the standard wedding…..a bride, a groom, young love, a cake, and a dinner.

Time to leave………..

Got out my little ticket and walked to the doors where two young employee boys were sitting.  I handed one of them my ticket.  He looked at me with a blank stare, did a deep sigh (and I know what that means, you little shit), and sauntered out to get my car.

I waited…………..talked to one of the bridesmaids.

I waited…………..talked to the bride.

I waited………….talked to some guy hitting on me.

Finally another car pulled up front, and a group of grandma’s with walkers proceeded to fill their vehicle…………very………..slowly.

I could see my car behind them.

Finally, grandma, grandma, and grandma were all packed up, walkers safely tucked in the trunk, and they slowly rolled out of the parking lot.  I was waiting for my car to pull up under the canopy, but it did not move.  On closer inspection………….my car had been abandoned, door wide open………nobody in there………

I walked over to my car, got in, and drove the way home swearing at the little shit for leaving my car …………..as I was swatting (all the way home) at all the bugs that had flown into my car toward the interior light!!!

Was all this really worth a pair of hot, sexy diva shoes?

yes it was………………………..

Party Time

This summer has been so busy for me.  Busier than any summer I can remember in quite awhile.  I have had an occasion to attend (sometimes two or three) every weekend since the middle of May.

Graduation parties are starting to come to an end.  It seems all of my cousins children are graduating this year.  I have to ask, did they all get together and say, “Hey! I know!  Let’s all get pregnant this year, so our kids can all graduate the same year! and then, guess what, let’s not have a combined party……………..no, let’s have 17 separate ones!!!”

I must admit it has been wonderful seeing all of my relatives at happy occasions.  This sure beats the years we only get together for funerals. 

I will be posting as much as I can the next few weeks.

Until then, I will be busy buying cards and writing out checks……….
