I've had a very puzzling day

Today when I arrived at work I found the carpark absolutely full. Not a space left and some very creative parking had been going on. Our office only has 4 people working in it, I always arrive first and the carpark is completely empty. I had to park round the corner and walk back, an hour later when everyone else arrived the car park was back to it's normal empty self again. They looked at me like I was mental when I told them I couldn't get a space.

At 11 am my lovely gorgeous shiny purple crackberry pinged a new email. The sender was the ex Beautiful Man, I nearly died when I saw his name in my inbox. We haven't spoken since January 2008 when I left him. I had to have a coffee before I could open it, when I did there was a sweet soppy message. This confused me muchly. I became even more confused when I read the date sent 27th June 2007. WTF? I don't even begin to understand that.

I'm sure there's a perfectly reasonable explanation for it. Or there's always gin.

I'd go for the gin. A bottle in fact. And ignore your crackberry. Much like I do...

Gigi said...

Very odd indeed! Yup, go with the gin! It will make more sense that way.

Gin, gin, gin.... and one for the crackberry to make it behave itself.

I've heard of emails arriving much later than you would expect, but two and a half years later is really odd. Yes, gin. Copious amounts, if possible.

Ayak said...

That's very odd. If it were me I would have to find out why he sent it and why it took so long to arrive. But I'd probably have to stop myself finding out and settle for the gin.

You've been time travelling with Dr Who again...you must stop stalking David Tenant....

Wow! It's either a time warp or life viewed through the bottom of a Gordon's bottle. I'd go for the Gordon's every time!

I have the 'Tales of the Unexpected' music drifting round my head and an imagine of the silhouetted Auntie Gwen doing that odd dance

Mrs Worthington said...

That's spooky. I'd go with the consensus and drink the gin!

Hehehe, i just 'found'you, oh my gosh you are so funny, I had to read your dating guide, yep it is spot on. I am a tad older than you and fussy when it comes to men, I am a single girl after two marriages. Who wants to date crap guys. By the way I think your crackberry has 'cracked'

Quite clearly, the Crackberry company have taken over where the Royal Mail left off. You'll be getting a WWll love letter from the western front shortly!

Jees - I still get the odd nicety
after 20 years. Still gushes guff (to my daughter) when he's drunk. Can't figure them out. We never will. Get the ice and the slice ready, girl!
