Locked Out

Monday night is Zumba night.

When I got home from work I got ready in record time. I bopped out the door humming the theme song to The Office (this is my new Netflix obsession and I have been watching it in every second of spare time) and locking the door from the inside.

Locking. The door. From the inside. 
 My purse, water bottle, and weights were in my hand. My keys were not. My car was locked, and I had no way to drive it anyway. After frantically checking all of the doors, I called Justin. My husband never answers his phone. So I called him again. And again. And a few more times.

Here are some things you can do when you're locked outside in your workout clothes: 
  • Jumping jacks
  • Laps around the house
  • Crunches
  • Anything you can remember from a Zumba routine
Here's what I did: sit at the patio table and talk to a friend on the phone until Justin got home. You know what I did on the way inside the house? I took a sip from my water bottle, whose lid was not on tightly, and spilled it all over me. Then walking up the steps I dropped my phone, scuffing the sides and sending the battery bouncing down the steps.

Now I'm eating ice cream covered with peanut butter melted in the microwave--if you try to tell me that's not delicious, I will fight you--and watching Jim and Pam get engaged.

Sooooo it's been a great start to the week. I hope your Monday is stellar.

  1. I can't STAND it when my husband doesn't answer his phone, especially when I call back 3 times in a row and he still doesn't pick up. He always seems to "hear it" when it's someone else calling...haha.

  2. Oh man!! At least you did have a phone with you! I've heard so many stories of people getting locked out of their houses....I feel very grateful that our house locks with a deadbolt, so you have to turn the key from the outside, that's the only way to lock it from the outside.
