My Other Job

Did I ever you tell you about my other job? Yeah, I have another job as a chauffer.

It's awesome.

I was on duty full-time today.

Of course, I had to get up at 5:00 am in order to get a workout in before my official shift started. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to fit it in at all. Here's what my day looked like:

5:30 am - leave for the gym

6:30 am - return home

7:30 am - leave home to take the Princess to the DMV so she could take her test for her learner's permit. She passed!!!!!!

10:00 am - drive her home from the DMV

10:45 am - drive her to a fund raising event for her step team

I had some personal errands of my own to run so I went to the bookstore to pick up Terry McMillan's latest and the O bookclub pick. I also ran into Tarjay to get some shower curtain liners.

1:45 pm - pick her up from the fund raising event

2:20 pm - take her to the mall so she could buy a new outfit for later that evening.

3:00 pm - get into an argument with her about said outfit and leave her and go to Sephora for some of my own retail therapy.

4:15 pm - leave the mall and head back to the house

5:45 pm - leave the house to pick up one of her friends that will be joining her for dinner.

6:00 pm - take her and the friend to the restaurant where she will be celebrating her birthday and getting her permit with more of her friends.

6:30 pm - return home, prepare the spaghetti alla puttenesca and open the bottle of red wine and plan to enjoy the rest of the evening secure in the knowledge that I won't have to leave the house again because the princess is spending the night at her girlfriend's house.

7:45 pm - get a text from the Princess requesting a ride after the movie because her girlfriend's mother bailed.

I am so happy she passed her test today and got her learner's permit. That means that in about nine months I'll be able to hang up my chauffer's cap.

Ha! ha! All that chauffering when is the sitting in the passenger seat & being a driving instructor job starting?

That was pretty scary for me. LOL!
