Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 10 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
My subject is:
A stranger finds your journal, where you left it on the park bench. He later shows up at your door and tells you he knows your secret. What do you do?
It was submitted by my friend Minette over at: http://www.southernbellecharm.com
Thanks, Minette, this is not good. I need to decide if I have to kill him now that he knows or just head for the Mexican border. I have lots of secrets and a few of them could explode and become the top of the next 24-hour news cycle. I don’t think that I would look good in stripes so I better practice my freshman Spanish that I haven’t uttered a word of since being a freshman.
I’m not really a hot temperature person so maybe I should head north instead. Does Canada hide fugitives? I think they’re pretty neutral so I’m sure they would extradite. Although, right now at this very moment, I’m considering committing several more felonies.
I just returned home from visiting momma in the nursing home with my daughter and both kids which is an ordeal in itself. Everyone loves to see the kids come, but the kids get kind of freaked out so it’s a very fine line to balance. After returning home, we started fixing them lunch and lo and behold when we tried to turn on the water and nothing came on, but just a small stream until it became a few drips and then nothing! NOTHING!
I told everyone not to panic and I called the water company to ask if they were working on the lines in the neighborhood. I was then told, “well, you didn’t pay your bill so it was shut off”. WTF! I always pay the bills on the same day each and every month and I know I paid that bill because it had gone up once again and I was complaining about it. When I explained that to her she said to contact my bank because they never received it. They also couldn’t turn it back on until they received the payment.
I called the bank. Yes, ma’am, that payment went through on May 23rd. They gave me a number to give the water company. I gave them that number but they said they didn’t have that number and they again could not turn it back on without payment. I started to just pay it again but thought no I made that payment I’m not doing it again.
Then it hit me! They send me a receipt right after I pay it every month. Sure enough, there was the receipt from THEM that says it was paid on the 23rd and it also had their confirmation number on it. I called them back and of course, they are SOOO sorry! They will have my water turned on by tomorrow….wait what? I don’t think so. Needless to say, she probably has a headache and I’ll have my water restored shortly…If not, Mexico it is, but you’ll find my car through the water companies door and I’ll be on a plane! Hola!
It’s always something, isn’t it?!? Does it seem like to you that nobody does their job anymore?
