Truthful Tuesday

This is a funny one... So Friday evening I had plans to meet up with some long time friends to finally exchange holiday gifts and enjoy some delicious pizza at Otto. Otto is one of those trendy pizza places, and it's right in my town. Super tasty!
Anyway, we planned to meet there at 7. I was driving my truck because my driveway is a sheet of ice and no place at all for a car that is about ready for tires and only rear wheel drive. Due to driving said truck (aka The Boat), I couldn't park on the street. It was First Friday in town so it was packed full. Every first Friday of the month, the local shops and restaurants all stay open late and offer different discounts for the night. It's a fun promotion, and attracts a lot of people. It's less fun though when trying to dock the boat. So I parked at the post office which is a pretty short walk to Otto. Due to said walk, I was a couple of minutes late, so I sent a text to the friends. I didn't get a response, but figured I'd either see them in there or grab a table. Which is what I did. I sat for a couple minutes, got a water. And then thought it was odd for them to be late and not touch base. So I checked our email with the plans. Yeah... We're meeting up Friday the 9th!
Lol! I stayed and had dinner anyway, but relocated from my table for 4 to a seat at the counter. It was still delicious. My server and I had a good laugh about the whole thing. Apparently, someone else did the same thing earlier in the evening. I said, oh that's too bad, we could have eaten together! Funny thing is, I had plans to meet a different friend at the same place last night (which happened as planned, thank you very much...) and now I'll be back again Friday. That's a lot of pizza in the course of 8 days. And the same guy has been my server each time so far... He's going to think I'm stalking him.

Have you ever shown up at the right place but wrong time? Were you embarrassed? I totally wasn't, but do think it's hilarious!

      Ummmm.... maybe????? Haha, you know me too well!
      Yes, they messed up on my gray ones and made the foot three sizes too big. My measurement was slightly off (like maybe a half size) but they agreed to make me a pair at half price. I decided to get green instead of gray this time.
