As I had to meet someone in Bangsar about noonish today, I thought I’d pop by early at my doctor’s office in the vicinity before going for my appointment. Yippee, I managed to secure a good parking spot shaded by trees. Fed some coins into the parking meter and then took a short walk down the slope to the clinic.
The doctor’s assistant was not too happy to see me walk in without a confirmed appointment but I pleaded with her to slot me in as I was willing to wait. I then settled into the sofa in the corner with some old copies of Reader’s Digest. I was quite engrossed reading when I overheard another lady informing the clinic assistant that she had to go down to put in more coins. OMG, how much did I feed the meter just now and how long was that supposed to be for? Sei ler, now only I realized I did not read the meter earlier. I also quickly got to my feet and scampered to my car. Phew! Just in time to see a Bandaraya chap busy issuing summons just 3 parking lots away from mine. Ahhhhh……very lucky and very happy indeed. Fed in a few more coins and sauntered back to the clinic.
After the consultation, I walked back to get my car. Arrrrghhhhh…….my car, my car is splattered with blotches of dried bird poooooo…..on the bonnet, on the roof, on the wing mirror, on the windows, arrghhh…..and she just had her bath yesterday. Quickly took out my water bottle and grabbed a few clumps of tissues to wipe away the poo. Yucks! Yucks! Yucks!
Almost noon already and I was about to head to my next appointment when a call came in to cancel it. OK, I then headed home. Aisehman, that big boy was not up yet. Woke him up and while waiting for him to shower, I brought in the laundry to fold. Suddenly I remembered - today is the younger boy’s birthday and this old mama has forgotten!! What kind of a mama is this???? I wanna kick myself. I immediately gave him a call.
Me : Happy Birthday! So sorry, I forgot to wish you this morning before you left for class.
Son : Thank you, Mama. It’s OK.
Me : Sorry, sorry. Love you. **muuuaaks**
Me : I’d go get you a cake.
Son : Thanks, Mama. A small one will do. See you later.
After lunch with the big boy, we went straight to the confectionery. Aiyah, birthday boy’s favorite cake sold out already but the shop assistant said a new batch would be ready after 4pm, so I placed an order for a small cake.
Now to drop off the big boy before I go for my hair cut. @$#%&*!* I had unknowingly stepped on chewing gum and got it smeared onto my car carpet as well. Whoever the monkey is, I pray he/she chew on his/her own tongue there and then. I drove straight home and after like 2 buckets of sweat, I managed to clear the mess on the carpet and my shoe.
Next stop, the hair salon Dunno what went wrong and I ended up with an ‘overcut’ fringe that made me look very lulu. :( Sei ler, I tentatively got a very important ‘date’ this weekend wor. Macam mana??? Macam mana???? A paper bag with 2 holes may just be useful.
See, I had a very ‘interesting’ day and I just had to blog about it in my 100th Merepek Post.
