A rapid fire, "NoNoNoNoNoNoN-O-O-O-O!", audibly, but in an almost whisper, flew out of this panicked SeaSpray's mouth in the Costco parking lot. It's amazing just how fast so many thoughts can simultaneously enter and process through my brain in a moment of significant concern and while also processing what had just happened. I assume most people do that. I froze on the spot just before putting the cart with the others but had turned to see all the car doors closed and my immediate concern was that I had locked my keys along with my purse in the car and now it was getting dark and the store was closing and it is not close to my house and so on. I panicked because I habitually press the locks down whenever I am closing the car doors and I thought I did that on the passenger side since it was the last door I closed and I had tossed the keys up on the dashboard. I even lock my car in my own driveway. And it wouldn't be the first time I locked myself out. I figured younger son would have to get a key from Mr SeaSpray and drive down to my rescue and I'd be waiting inside Costco with the night crew and, well ...like I said, so many thoughts, even more than I've mentioned an all in about 15 seconds. I don't know why but that both fascinates and amuses me. You know ... your just having your usual normal though processes and then WHOOSH! Major incoming thoughts at lightening speed. I could've used some of that at my recent urology appointment the other day. I think for the first time ever I only asked one question, didn't even tell him anything of what I had planned but instead just went with the flow, no pun intended. :)
Thankfully, I didn't lock the doors.
Anyway, as stated in tonight's earlier post, I will still finish post about police officer coming here. And for the first time I actually stuck to my little list in that store only getting a couple of extra things and I did the same in the local store up here after that. Miracles do happen. :)

"Either you're a very nice person or your making fun of me.", said the smiling police officer as he rounded our fence, continuing to walk up our driveway to speak with me. To be continued ...because right now, Hi Ho! Hi Ho! To Costco I go! :) I know, I'm teasing you now.
I really have to get there because I just found out that we are having our first born son's party here tomorrow night and I have much to do. It's a bit far to drive for only fruit, eggs, bacon, bread and sauce, but I know I can count on their fruit. I am surprising him with a pretty fruit salad in a carved watermelon with yummy fruit dip to go with it. I bought 2 for one blueberries in a local store this week and I now know why they were on sale. Mr. SeaSpray bought cantaloupes at 99 cents a piece and they don't have any flavor. Don't you just hate that? So, like I said the trip to Costco is worth it for the fruit alone. And I am determined to stick to my list.
Actually, I did write most of the police officer post last week but I am going to cut out the part of the story that led to the stress that led to my actions that caused his visit. It's a bit embarrassing and also long ...although funny, says me. ;) Not that the embarrassing and long has stopped me in the past. Suffice it to know that it was just one of those crazy if it can go wrong days ...it will and it did. :)
I also have some good news. Double good news actually. Great news with one thing, particularly given all I've written in this blog over the years. But for now ...Hi Ho! Hi Ho! I really have to go! ;)
