Groundhog day or senior moment day

Sunday, December 18, 2011

Ok - here's the story -

I went out this morning around 7:30 to get my Sunday paper. Didn't see it on the porch so I went off the step and looked down and saw it on the ground next to the porch. Picked it up - took it inside - noticed that it was really skimpy for a Sunday paper - took it out of it's sack and noticed it was Friday December 2.

Called my local paper letting them know that I was having a groundhog day since I had already received a Friday December 2 paper (I remember pulling the little sticker off of it as well as reading it) They said they'd have another delivered within the next hour or so and I received it about 20 minutes later.

When taking my son to work about a hour later I told him the story. He said "Do you mean that paper that's been next to the porch"? I said "Huh? How do you know about that paper"? He said "Mom - that paper's been out there forever". I said "No it hasn't - it's just been there this morning".

Much back and forth on that so I won't go into detail but his final to me was "Mom - that paper - in the orange bag - has been on the ground next to the porch FOREVER. You are NOT having a groundhog day - you're having a senior moment day"!!!!!!

Now you tell me - I go in and out of the house 2-4 times a day - how in the world could I miss an orange plastic bag RIGHT NEXT TO THE PORCH?????

Groundhog day? Senior moment day? Too much eggnog?????? (seriously tho - I don't drink)

Anywho - I called the paper back to let them know so my carrier wouldn't get into trouble (can't imagine how hard they were laughing after they got off the phone with me)

Good grief!
