I need a ride home

I had to go to Citrus College for more transcript work, so I parked in a convenient store parking lot nearby to avoid the $5 day pass. Then I walked to the admissions building.

They told me that it would still take awhile, despite paying the $10 rush processing fee. Idiots!

I stormed out, but had a complete lapse of memory and forgot where I parked. I was really drowsy. I wandered for a few minutes, then bumped into Jordan.

Then, I woke up. It was 5:26am this morning. I immediately emailed myself the following:

Dream last night: involvement fighting in some war in the Middle East. Weapon of choice? AeroPress.

Go ahead and laugh. 🙂
