Going downtown can sure be an adventure

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I had to go downtown today and sure had a time getting there and back. I took the amount of money I needed for a round trip ticket. But I couldn't get the ticket machine to work so tried another one. The second one turned out to be for parking, not the bus/light rail ticket. I had enough to get a one way ticket and went and got on the first train that came along. Wrong train. At least I could get the free shuttle from either one, so I got to see some scenery I haven't seen in years and since they have changed a lot of things. Then I had to walk south to get to where I was going but had the wrong address, so was confused trying to find the place. I had trouble finding the room I needed to get to, too. What a comedy of errors.

On the way back, I knew where I needed to end up, but I needed to get some money to get the return ticket, so had to find a bank. Of course, I had passed the kind I needed and had to go back a ways. I finally got to the return light rail station and had learned a lesson and made sure I got the right train this time.

With all that running around I did manage to get some exercise. Now for some sleep.

    Those days are much better in retrospect, and sometimes not so much fun when you actually are going through them... glad you got the exercise, though!

    I'm glad you were able to see the up side of things, sometimes all it takes to turn a bad day around is a good attitude.
