So I got some pretty bad news, I was pretty bummed out. So what is it a girl needs to make herself feel better? SHOP! Yea you’re with me.
So I dropped the kids off at school and headed down to Lane Bryant. They are having a kick ass sale right now. Mama wanted $120 in bras for $60 heehee. Anywho I pulled in and I parked somewhere different then I usually do. I usually park further down because I hit up the Children’s Place after. This day however I wasn’t going there so I parked in a different lot, sort of. They have a weird set up.
So as I was saying. I got out of my car. Now this may sound funny but whenever there is a fire my son and I can smell it, I swear, before anyone even knows. One time we got home (when we lived at my moms) and Robert was about 3-4 and he jumped out of the car and said “Mama there is a house fire. I smell it. Can we find it?” I smelled it too but there was NO smoke in sight. Whatever I got his little wagon out and decided we might as well go for a walk. Well we got about two houses down and the smell was even worse. I stopped and said Robert I do smell it more now. He shook his head in agreement. Next thing we know the fire department comes flying by and 4 houses up (about a 1/4 of a mile) the house was on fire. So basically we can smell it.
I smell it and I think, “hmmm that is weird. I hope this place isn’t on fire.” Then I figured my day couldn’t suck anymore and if I was in a fire it wouldn’t surprise me. So I went into Lane Bryant and I am looking through the clearance (come on you go there first.) When some lady comes over to me and says “Excuse me mam? Do you work here?” WTF lady I am in yoga pants a zipper up hoodie and shoes that look like slippers? UM NO. I politly said no and she said “well I think we need to find someone. There is a car smoking really bad out there.” I look out and for sure that is what I smelled. Of course I smelled it before any other sign was there (smoke, fire etc.) I yelled hello one of the ladies came running and I said call 911.
At this point the guy comes walking out to his car. I wish I got this on video because they guy was just strolling like he didn’t even notice. He got there and of course me being the hero I am (ex EMT) I run out and yell NO. He just waved me off opened his drivers door and popped his hood. ARE YOU FRIGGEN SERIOUS BRO?! Well BAM that thing went up in flames. Of course at this point he is blown on his ass, I thank god I parked in the other lot, I see he is ok so the only thing left was to take a picture.
That picture is right after the shock that some idiot almost blew up the friggen mall, so the flames are surrounded by smoke. Also at this point no fire department was there yet. As you can see.
So that was my day shopping!
