"If you don't insure the car against ACTS OF GOD, you will be held responsible for them."
"I'll be held responsible for acts of God??"
"Yes. Unless you insure the car against such ACTS OF GOD!!!"
"Are you expecting God to smite Hertz rental car drivers this evening?"
"Ma'am, there is no way to predict when such acts might occur. That's why we recommend the insurance."
"Can you tell me the last time an act of God took out a Hertz rental car driver?"
And on and on it went. I finally escaped only to discover that they had given me the wrong car. Which meant I had to go back to the counter and go through the whole thing again. GRRRR!!!
So...you guys have big plans this weekend? Hopefully you don't have too much planned for Saturday, because Valentine's Day has been cancelled this year. By my boyfriend. Yup. I apologize to anyone who might have gone out of their way to make reservations, and I hope you saved the receipt(s) for those flowers/candies/gifts you may have bought. There will be no Valentine's Day this year. I know many of you male readers have thought about skipping out on V-day, but my boyfriend actually had the balls to wait for me to bring it up and then say "OH JESUS! WE'RE NOT DOING THAT CRAP! Valentine's Day is CANCELLED!" I know exactly what you're thinking, ladies, wherever did I find him?
I like giving Ant a hard time about canceling Vday, but the truth is he's pretty fabulous everyday of the year so I really have nothing to complain about. And I'm gonna be in PA anyway. As an example of his greatness, the other day he let me drag him to the Pinnacles for a hike, and he was all, "We should've brought the Sprinter so we could camp tonight!" And I was like, "MAN! That would've been so cool!" And he was like, "Wait! We can still stay, we'll just find a motel somewhere. We can drive over to Monterrey and have dinner, and then go to the aquarium tomorrow!" And I was all, "Umm...I thought we were just going hiking. I have seven dollars, a few packs of hot chocolate, and a half eaten bag of trail mix on me." And in true sugardaddy fashion he took me to dinner, found a place for us to stay, took me to the aquarium and tried not to get embarrassed when I ran around like a little kid, and then took me for a cheeseburger for lunch before we headed back to the city. How great is that?!? I had such a fun time, especially with the sea dragons!
Well kids, I'm a bit tired. Gonna finish watching Family Guy with Steph and Edward and then go catch some ZZZ's in my very own bed, which they inherited for their guest room when I moved to Korea. Tomorrow morning I meet my friend Charlie for our traditional bfast at the Ham Fam, and then I'm off to Sunbury to see my family.
Hopefully I make it through the drive without getting destroyed by an act of God. I'd hate to have to admit that the Hertz rental car lady was right!
