My day so far
When I woke up this morning, I realized I'd forgotten to make a pie I'd promised for a department potluck. So I jumped out of bed and whipped together a Weight Watcher ice box pie and slipped it into the fridge to chill while I showered and dressed. That made me a little later than usual for work, so I jumped in my car and hopped onto the freeway. And about halfway to the office I realized...the pie was still in the fridge. So I turned around and drove back to Maumelle, nabbed the pie, headed to Little Rock again. Pulled up in front of the building and parked in the loading zone. Ran upstairs with my now melty-looking pie. Dashed to our department. No banquet table. So I went to Freda, who always knows everything that's going on, and said, "Where's the food?" And she said, "What food?" And I said, "The potluck." And she said, "That's next Friday."
