Comedy of Errors

Thursday is my 'school' day (at Houghton), but this particular Thursday morning ended up being a comedy of errors on my part. It started by totally forgetting about our district LDJ meeting, a once-per-month meeting that I usually go too. As I got ready (too slowly to get the garbage to the road on time) to go to Houghton, I realized that Katie had the iPod at work. But I really like having the iPod on Thursday's b/c I'm in the car for almost 4 hours, so I called her and asked if I could get it from her. She reminded me bring the cord so we could transfer my favorite show from the laptop (which I had) to the iPod. I finally got ready and went down to the car (we live in a 2nd story apartment). But I had forgotten my keys and so had to go back up. Then I got back to the car, started down the driveway, but remembered that I had forgotten the iPod cord. So I went up to get it and left home for a third time. I brought the laptop and cord into Katie so we could transfer stuff and she realized that I had brought the wrong white cord (it was a camera cord). So I took the laptop and iPod to church to tranfer songs there. I arrived at church, put the garbage in the dumpster, loaded the iPod, and took off. But I accidently left, at the church, my laptop cord (which Katie had specifically reminded me not to forget) AND my wallet (I didn't realize this until half-way to Houghton). So I couldn't use my laptop all day OR buy lunch or dinner (luckily I had enough gas).

But it all worked out. The garbage is gone. I listened to 4 episodes of Steve's show during the rides. I didn't need my laptop. I found some week-old wafers in my car. One of my classmates brought Latin American style food for us all to accompany his presentation, and Katie found my wallet down the coach cushion at home. The only downside, really, was that I couldn't drive very fast b/c I didn't want to get pulled over without a license.

I can't believe you commute to Houghton! That is crazy. I thought maybe you were going to the West Seneca campus at least!

Matthew is a New Yorker, of course he speeds! We have really low speed limits too.
