The Pants Monkey and I have our wedding anniversary at the end of the month. And I love him so very much and could not ask for a better husband. But that's not what I'm going to share about today. Oh no, not at all. Instead, I will share the story of the time the Pants Monkey learned an expensive lesson. It's fresh in my head cause it just happened last night.
So we went to the driving range to practice a couple of things we've learned at our lessons. We actually met there after work, so we each were in our own cars. We did our thing and were getting ready to leave when I see him patting himself down and starting to get "That" look. You know that look, the one that says "oh crap." I asked what was wrong and he said "I think I locked my keys in my trunk." He has one of those cars that has a separate door key and ignition key and I only have an extra ignition key, he kept meaning to get me a door key made and well, yeah. We had no way of getting into the car. We carry Triple A on my car, but not on his. So now he had a dilemma. I offered to call Triple A and see if they'd come anyway, but he ended up calling a locksmith instead. And of course, it was going to be a half hour to 45 minutes. Did I mention we also hadn't had dinner yet? So dutiful wife that I am, I sat and waited with him. Fortunately the locksmith came at the half hour mark and got into the car pretty quickly. And the Pants Monkey handed over a nice chunk of change. So, moral of the story, guess where he is going after work tonight? To get a second key made for me. Possibly a third to keep at home somewhere. I tell you, never a dull moment in marriage sometimes!
I wasn't totally sure about today's outfit, but I'm happy with how it turned out. I love this shirt, but it looks funny unless you wear the belt it came with, which is brown and I really wanted to wear this gray skirt and wasn't sure if they'd look ok together, but it seems to work just fine!
And this next picture is my entry into the Secret Society of Bloggers Under Desks - kind of a running joke, Megan from the Fashionable Bureaucrat was having a bad day one day and took a picture under her desk. Soon Shelia did it and then Megan Mae did it and I said I would too - so here it is. Who said fashion bloggers don't know how to have a little fun with themselves every now and then?
Quite frankly, in the midst of the key crisis last night I kind of wanted to hide! Thank goodness it didn't sour our entire evening!
