Disoriented or Blonde?

I haven't been feeling well; I have all the symptoms of a sinus infection. Headache, earache, head and chest congestion, fever. I left work yesterday and headed straight home, walked in the door, petted the cat, put on my gown and crawled into bed. By 4:30.

I woke up feeling a bit out of sorts and looked at the clock. 6:35! I was in a panic, convinced I was going to be late to work. I ran into the bathroom and took the world's fastest shower. I honestly don't think I got wet all over. I hurriedly dried off and ran to the closet to decide what to wear. Then I looked at the clock again and saw the little light indicating p.m.

I put my gown back on and went back to bed.

Don't feel bad; I did that once! I was working two jobs at the time, and my boss at my full time job was a huge jerk. He knew I was working the second job and threatened to fire me if I was just one minute late to work - even if it was because I broke down on the freeway or had a flat tire! So I got home from work one day and was exhausted. I feel alseep and woke up at 8:30. I was DEVESTATED! I knew I was fired for sure. I tried to call my office but no one answered the phone (we didn't have voice mail). I tried calling my sister at her office for sympathy and support, but no one answered there either! Since this was in the days before everyone and their dog had a cell phone, I left for work and stopped by a pay phone outside the grocery store to try to call work again. Again, no answer. Then I realized that the sky seemed to be getting darker instead of lighter... I asked a lady coming out of the store what time it was; she said 9:10. I asked, "AM or PM?" She said, "PM!", gave me a weird look and walked away really fast.

I gave my two weeks notice to my day job not long after that. Weirdest thing to happen to me in a loooooong time!
