Happy Father's Day!

Had plans to do a brunch thing with The Offspring. Had to stop on the way to her place and get gas. I muttered to myself ‘don’t lock the door ~ don’t lock the door’ as I got out of the car. Filled up my tank. (That still pisses me off these days ~ *grins*) I went to get back in the car and found... I had locked the car door! Well done, T!!

Asked the attendant inside if they had a coat hanger or a door jimmy (tool for unlocking doors) and no they didn’t. Called the kiddo, told her what was going on and asked if she’d bring me a coat hanger. She did, but I couldn’t get the thing to act right. I finally called ATT roadside assistance. They had some one there in less than half an hour. Guy popped the door open in like 5 minutes. The paperwork took longer to do! So off we went to my apartment. 3 blocks away. I needed to change my shirt.

The first place (Papacitos) we tried was somewhat ridiculous crowded. By this time we were both so hungry we didn't care about the brunch thing. Bring on the chips and salsa. Pulled into the next mexican restaurant (and it wasn't a chain) we came across and had a pretty good meal.

Tex~Mex is good for the soul I think. After that I went along with the girl to the pet store so she could get her cat some cat food, and then she dropped me off here at La Casita. I spent the afternoon watching Rory Mcilroy kick some ass at the US Open.

A nice day overall except for the car keys issue... And even that wasn’t too bad...

Sounds like a nice day.

My business partner's car randomly locks itself without any rhyme or reason - could it be your car and not you? (Tryin' to help out with a plausible excuse, T)

Hah! Thanks, but no it isn't the car. When I bought this gem it was a base model. No electric door locks or windows. My fault!

Oh, that is SO true. The good thing about Tex-Mex is how good it tastes. The BAD thing is that it's so easy to eat - hardly any cutlery needed, no having to cut it up like steak or maneuver like spaghetti - that it goes so fast that it's over before you know it.

Meh, don't you hate it when you remind yourself over and over again and you do it on automatic anyway? Or maybe it's like Nodressrehearsal's friend's car :P Glad it got sorted out without TOO much hassle!

Sounds like a nice day...Happy Father's Day, Tex!

It was a pretty good day.

We went to Eduardo's, formerly Mely's yesterday. It's always good.

My standard advice to people who lock themselves out of the car / house: Always lock the door with the key - that way it's physically impossible to lock yourself out.

Plus I have such an intense phobia about leaving keys in the car, I never do. If for some reason I have to - like if I'm getting an oil change, I have to unlock all the doors first.

Good idea. Have to train myself to do that.

Sounds like a nice Fathers day after the key incident. Good for you!

Oh yeah. The key incident in the grand scheme of things: Not a big deal...

I'm glad you had RA. I've considered it a time or three, used to have it long ago when I first learned to drive. It's a comfort knowing it's there. I'm kinda OCD when it comes to keys, especially after having locked myself out of the house last November while wearing house shoes and no supportive undergarments. How embarrassing, on so many levels.

Sounds like a good day, despite the setback.
