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?
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. She giggles, snuggles into me, turns her head towards me with a smile, kisses me on the check and calls me her hero. Her 6’5, 350 pound monster of a very jealous boyfriend gets out of his truck, pounds me into the pavement breaking my nose and cracking my tooth.
The ambulance and police arrive with lights flashing.
Dental bills are incurred.
No one will like me after this after sharing this. 😦
This is now the worst day of my life!
HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY EVERYONE
