It was an interesting weekend.
On Friday I went to a surprise birthday party. Everyone there was a cop or related to one, except me. All of the conversations consisted of police codes. For example: " I had a 321 come at me with a 642-718 and I pulled a 949'er and booked him on a 502." After the first hour I felt fairly confident and decided to throw in my own two cents after one of the guests was telling a particularly long story using code after code after code. I wasn't satisfied with just standing there holding a drink in my hand and minding my own business which would have saved me a lot of trouble and embarrassment for what followed. Instead I threw out a code of my own....deafening silence ensued... and quicker than I could run from the room, grab my purse and leave...the birthday girl arrived to save the day. It was a surprise party after all...and boy did I surprise them. I bet they are all going through their code books wondering what I was talking about. Hopefully I didn't say something like, "I'm on the most wanted list."
On Saturday I went to the movies with my Valentine. We saw "Defiance"...and was that ever romantic. We had to sit in the 5th row seeing as how so many other romantic couples chose the same movie. Love is in the air... I tell you. Anyway, halfway through the movie there is a scene involving lots of gunfire and explosions. As I was sitting there minding my own business and wishing I was watching a chick flick - a piece of dirt flew in my eye. I swear it came straight out of the movie...just like Sensurround. I slowly crawled over 10 people and then ran to the ladies room where I could remove my eyeball and wash the boulder stuck in its place. I washed out the offending speck and ran back to the theater with my one good eye guiding me in a zig-zag fashion through the popcorn toting, diet Coke lugging crowd. The movie ended and we came home. End of Saturday excitement.
On Sunday nothing unusual happened. The police didn't arrive at my door because of my Friday indiscretion and after my Saturday debacle, I can see out of both eyes again. All was calm. Looking forward to the weekend again...
