Life in Progress: A weblog by Heidi Price

A rockin' Monday

No matter how hard I try to be on time, I'm 15 minutes late for everything I do.

Take this morning, for example. I woke up at 6:30 a.m., more than 2 1/2 hours before I was scheduled to make an appearance at my desk. I need 40 minutes to get to work in the morning which meant I needed to leave at 8:20 a.m. to be on time. At 8:15 a.m., I locked myself out of my house. My main set of keys were sitting on my kitchen table. My spare set was locked in side my car.

I had to call my editor and admit that yes, for the second time in less than a week, I had locked myself out and, for the second time in less than a week, I would be significantly late for work.

It got me to thinking about the last time I went on a space cadet spree. Not too many years ago I locked my keys in my car so many times in one week that the AAA tow truck driver thought I was hitting on him.

"You know," the driver told me on my third lock-out in as many days "you could just ask me out."
