Because sometimes sitting in an office drives me crazy.

I got lost trying to find a certain bank today. In the RAIN. And lightning. I love lightning. Did you know that the safest place to be during a lightning storm is in your car? Yes, tis true. Google that if you don't believe me. You should believe me though. You know why? Because one time I was in a car that was struck by lightning. We were on summer vacation at a lake in Pennsylvania and my dad was driving and yes, lightning struck the car and it was more than evident. It was pretty strange. I was only 7 but I remember it vividly. It's a cool story to tell now.

I have lots of cool stories to tell. Like the time I was bit by a copperhead snake and almost died. Not lying. My precious mom put a band aid on it and sent me back outside to play. My rendition of the story went something like this- "Mom, an alligator bit me". She probably laughed, saw a small bite and thought "what an imaginative little girl I have". Um, obviously the band aid didn't suffice as I came back in convulsing and stuff. I lived and my mom never second guessed me again.

An oppossum fell on my head when i was in 4th grade. True story. Out of the tree, right onto my head. My mom saw the whole thing. How many people can say they had an oppossum fall out of a tree onto their head? I can. I might be the only person on the planet who can say that and that's fine with me.

I've busted my head open, toe open, eaten glass and stuffed my nose as full as it could be with tart and tiny candies yet i've never broken a bone in my body. Crazy.

I've lived through all of that and even more.

Maybe I'll do a part two to this sometime.

All of that from getting lost trying to find a bank. My thought process is pretty wild. Yeah?
