• So lost

    On Monday, I decided to take a drive to an area of town I have never driven in before and wasn’t exactly sure how to navigate myself through the streets.  I told myself that the town isn’t so big and I have a GPS so what’s the big deal.  I must have been feeling very confident in myself.  Well, even with the GPS I got lost.  The GPS was telling to make a right turn and I reasonably explained to the GPS that I couldn’t make a right where it was telling me because there was a sign that clearly said NO THROUGH ROAD so there was no way out of that street if I did turn right!  But the bloody bastard kept telling me that I had to take that turn.  So I ignored it and kept driving.  And that’s when the shit hit the fan and the GPS refused to cooperate with me and purposefully decided to get me lost.  20 minutes and several mini panic attacks, later I arrived at my destination.  The entire trip from my driveway to the parking lot should have only been 15 minutes but it took me 30 minutes.  On the way back home, I once again got lost because the damn GPS didn’t tell me ahead of time that I will be making a left so I would need to be in the left lane rather than the right!  As a result, I had to drive past my exit and backtrack my way back.

    Today, I decided to try that little adventure again and I didn’t get lost!  I got there and back just fine without incident.  Well, I did have a mini panic attack while I was at an intersection.  There were so many lines on the road that I momentarily forgot STAY ON THE LEFT!  But I quickly snapped out of it and made it just fine.

    Yay for me!

      It’s amazing how very much so! I said “bloke” for the first time ever a few days ago and it didn’t feel awkward at all. With time, all things are possible. – Y
