A few weeks ago, I locked my keys in the car. At work. Oops.
Luckily, my mom has an extra key. Unluckily, I work for the Special Forces, so there’s too much
hassle security involved for her to bring me the key.
Cupcake Dangler (CD): Where are the cupcakes you baked?
Me: In my car. For safekeeping. With my keys.
I was going to walk to meet my mom because it’s only a mile off post. And then CD offered to drive me because he really wanted a cupcake.
Once we reached the key drop-off point, I called my mom from CD’s phone (because mine was locked in my car) to see where she was.
Me: Someone from work was nice enough to drive me….
CD: “Someone from work?” I’m hurt. I don’t get to meet your mom?
Me: I can’t tell my mom it was you! Then she’ll save your phone number, and you’ll get random texts from her asking if I’m ok if she can’t get ahold of me. And that’s embarrassing.
Then later that day, my mom texted me this:
Mom: Was that him?
Me: Yep. Don’t save his phone number, ok?
Mom: Too late.
