Did he catch or didn't he?

I think by now, if you haven’t completely forgotten about it, you are wondering what I actually did about the woman I seen blowing in the wind last week.  If you missed it, or need to refresh your memory, click here.

Today is the day I tell you what happened.

WHAT DID I DO ABOUT A WOMAN BLOWING IN THE WIND?

eight

The alarm sounds and I crawl out of bed. I feel the house shake a  little; another windy day. My car warms up and I am off to work. The morning is uneventful. On my lunch break I head to the grocery story to pick up several thing to have for my noon meal and pay for it with a gift card I received last Christmas.

I exit the grocery store with my bag of groceries in one hand…  It is very windy and I have to lean forward to make my way into the wind.  I hear the sound of clip, clip, clip, clip, coming towards me on the pavement, I look up to see a tall, slim, blonde woman, trying to keep her balance as the wind blows her across the parking lot… The wind is so strong she is unable to stop. She has a worried look on her face.

I have three seconds to make a decision.

I decide not to ignore her plight as I lean into the wind and stretch out my free arm and hook her around her waist as she blows by. I scoop her to safety, allowing her to lean her back against my chest, bracing her against the wind. Then with my chin over her shoulder I whisper into her ear. “You are safe, I have you now. ” We stand there as a sudden stronger gust of wind blows past us with no effect. Then she panics thinking I am about to abduct her; dragging her off to some remote cabin in the forest.  The grocery store staff rush to her aid and wrestle me to the pavement, pinning me there, while breaking my nose and cracking my tooth.

The police arrive with lights flashing.

I panic and try to explain I was only trying to help but now that my tooth is cracked I lisp and the police mistaken it for aggression.

I am tasered and do an impression of bacon frying on a grill.

Dental bills are incurred.

No one will like me after this after sharing this.  😦

This is now the worst day of my life!

    • Well Caitlin, I think some people may get tired of seeing that photograph over and over if this groundhog day doesn’t soon come to an end.
