Tonite Brenda and I had plans to go to a play. Because I am on crutches I don't want to walk too far so take the bus. Brenda wanted to walk. I missed the bus I was aiming for and had to wait an extra 15 minutes. Brenda didn't see me waiting for the bus when she left the house so she arrived at our meeting point before I did.

Since she didn't see me still waiting for the bus she was confused when I was not at the meeting point first. When I arrived she was not there which left me in a conundrum. Did Brenda continue on to the play or did she go back home? I waited around for a few minutes but then I was worried about time. I continued on to the play alone and there she was outside the theatre. Of course I had the tickets. 

Now this could have all been avoided if Brenda would carry her cellphone. I could have just called her and said wait at the bus stop. Communication is key especially when one person is on crutches.

Until tomorrow...


  1. Yep. Cellphone. This is the kind of mixup that used to happen before, oh, the turn of the century, before we all had cellphones glued to our heads. I understand your frustration.

    I also understand Brenda, though. I must admit I sometimes forget my cellphone when I go out, or leave it in my purse in the kitchen where I can't hear it should it tweedle at me. My forgetfulness (another admission) is probably directly related to my irritation at having to carry a phone on my person all the time. I'm just not a phone person and dislike being called in my car or at the grocery store or when I'm out, period. Growwwl. I'm working on it--being connected 24/7 is how the world works now, whether I like it or not.

    Patience is required all around. :o)

    1. It all worked out and if I had not been on crutches it would not have been such a big deal. I will work on her carrying it when we travel separately.


Would love to hear what you have to say!
