That about sums up my life, too. *sighs*
I'm not even sure if it's my car when I do find it. I have to look in the windows to see if I recognize anything inside.

I bought that for my Mrs D for her 50th birthday.
nonamedufus said…
You need a beeper on your key fob, UP. Then of course you have to be on the same level as your car in the parking garage.
Ziva said…
Hah! Love the hat, dufus. I'd get one, but at my age getting lucky means something entirely different.

AhahahahHAhHhHAhAHAHhaHAhahAHHAhahAHah!

I have gotten into THE WRONG CAR in a parking lot, thinking it was mine!

That hat is way too funny!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I know...a car with no hole in the floor.
nonamedufus said…
Oh my gosh. That must have been very embarrassing.
Pat Kumicich said…
I want/need a hat like this!
meleahrebeccah said…
Totally embarrassing!
nonamedufus said…
I think I found it in the Dollar Store.
Margaret said…
You must live in a trusting town because I've yanked on a locked door handle or two, but never gotten inside one.
Margaret said…
Amen, brother!
meleahrebeccah said…
I actually wrote a blog post about it.


Lesson Learnt - Never leave my house without my digital camera ever again.
Even if my camera is old and broken. Even if 9 times out of 10 the picture comes out blurry. And even if my camera uses batteries like a prostitute uses condomsŠit still would have been really handy to have in my possession when I saw Sanjaya shopping at my local CVS.

Oh, alright, so it wasn't Sanjaya. And, for the record, I don't even like Sanjaya. Not.Even.A.Little. But I did frantically search my purse for said crappy digital camera when the Sanjaya look-a-like-could-have-been-practically-identical-twin strolled into the store.

After shoving my hand violently around my gigantic purse for a solid 8 minuets, I still couldn't locate my camera. That's when I realized I had left it at home to download more new pictures of Baby Mason.

As I wondered aimlessly into the parking lot, I was lost in deep thought about how funny that post would have been. I was disappointed for missing the perfect opportunity to hold a Spontaneous Sanjaya look a like contest. Distracted, preoccupied, and contemplating the words I would have used in my Œalmost post' I began unloading the bags from my shopping cart into THE WRONG CAR.

Um. Yeah. Hi.

I was too busy cussing myself out for being ill prepared, that I wasn't even aware I was putting my bags, into someone else car.

(Because, you know, Hyundai's and Nissan's look so much alike. Right?)
The only clue to the situation I had gotten myself into was how clean the back seat of the wrong car was. The back seat of my car is filled with empty coffee cups, cigarette packs, 15 pairs of shoesŠall of which I did not see as I was placing bags neatly intoŠThe Wrong Car.

First I panicked. Then I rapidly scanned the parking lot for any onlooker, or the possible owner of the car. Thankfully no one saw me as I quickly removed the bagsŠand thankfully I wasn't busted.

Lesson Learnt? There may be a celebrity look a like at any given time, in any given store. Never leave my house without my digital camera ever again. I might end up in jail for a really embarrassing misunderstanding, one that infers to unlawful entry or even burglary.
Margaret said…
Holy Crap! Man, the worst part would be pulling your bags out of the wrong car while furtively looking around...you would have looked SO GUILTY!!!! Like you were totally stealing! Like when George was taking the tip out of the jar so he could do it again while the guy was looking except the guy saw him take it OUT of the jar, I know you know what I'm talking about. Except I can't remember if it was a pizza place? Or am I confusing it with the place that Kramer took his clothes to be dried in the pizza oven? Either way, they both got kicked out. No wonder they all ended up in jail in the final episode (spoiler alert for those who haven't seen the show 45 bajillion times)
meleahrebeccah said…
Margaret, you’re cracking me the fuck up!!

AHAHAHhHAHhAHhhHAhahhHAHh!

That was THE SAME episode!

:)
MikeWJ said…
What do you mean you almost never get lucky? Do you have bad luck? And why is everybody else here except Ziva agreeing with you? Does everybody in this group also have bad luck? Why is everybody so unlucky? What are we talking about? I'm so confused by your Canadian expressions. Am I missing something?
MikeWJ said…
P.S. -- I switched to Firefox, and it lets me comment. So Bill Gates can go fuck himself.
Linda Medrano said…
What a literal man you are! I like that a lot.
nonamedufus said…
You know there was a time I was having trouble leaving comments on your blog. When I switvhed to Firefox it worked. Weird.
nonamedufus said…
But I am lucky. I found my car in the parking lot.
nonamedufus said…
I know. I read a lot. Oh literal. I thought you aid literary.
nonamedufus said…
Right on, sister.
nonamedufus said…
Or the weird presents for your wife's 50th birthday store. Or some store.
nonamedufus said…
Who are Sanjaya and Baby Mason. Did they own the car you put your bags in?
meleahrebeccah said…
Ahahahahhahahha! No!

Sanjaya was a contestant on American Idol like 100 years ago.

Baby Mason is my nephew, who will be FIVE YEARS OLD this month!

This post was from a long time ago!

:)
Coco said…
Ha ha! I like the idea of your photo for today and like the text on your cap as well!
nonamedufus said…
Okay, good, Glad we cleared that up.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I can be creative once in a while. But at my age those moments are few and far between.
Laughing Mom said…
After you find your car- so you get lucky in it???
nonamedufus said…
Depends who's in it.
ladyV said…
i like to keep hats over my head too. don't have to comb hair, what's left of it anyway.
Monique Renae said…
Ha! I need this hat in my life.
nonamedufus said…
I wear it when I cut the lawn. At least when I can find my lawnmower.
nonamedufus said…
I have many. i might share some of them later in our little 30 day exercise.
Jamie Baker said…
Wow, I feel the sentiment of that hat.
Nicky said…
I'm guessing that whatever's written on your hat is funny, but I'm not sure because AT MY AGE, I can't read a damn thing unless the letters are all 6 inches tall!!
nonamedufus said…
Hits home, right?
nonamedufus said…
One word: glasses.
Cheryl said…
Even I can read that & I just found out I have cataracts. C'mon Nicky, try harder. It's cute.
Cheryl said…
I need one of these caps. I'll trade you a Denny Hamlin visor (given to me by Denny's mom) for that hat. Whaddaya say? Deal?
nonamedufus said…
She's just being difficult. She's good at difficult.
nonamedufus said…
It's Mrs D's. You'll have to make her an offer.
Barb said…
*snicker*
Unfortunately this slogan is becoming true for me at times!
AHHH HAAA HAAAA! I love it!
Linda R. said…
Ha! That's what those clickers are for. ;)
nonamedufus said…
I guess time's catching up with some of us.
nonamedufus said…
Based on many of the comments I should start selling them.
nonamedufus said…
Well, yeah. Or else they're meant to help blind people find their cars.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
