The Bridge Club, Part Eye-eye

So, there was food, Fruit Art, movie-going, and puzzling. You'd think this would be enough excitement for one sleepover extravaganza, but...

Early Saturday afternoon I realized that something dreadful had happened. I locked my keys in the car. (This happens surprisingly frequently considering I get more and more paranoid every time it happens.) I could see my pretty blue key chain dangling from the ignition--my aunt bought that key chain for me in Greece, and it is supposed to bring good luck. Well.

Because I am entirely too stubborn, I refused to call a locksmith, and instead gathered up The Bridge Club and an assortment of kitchen utensils. There was the screwdriver we used to pry the door open, the chopsticks and spatula we used as a wedge, the purple duct tape,  the wire coat hanger, and a knitting needle we thought might be useful (it wasn't). Once we finally figured out how to maneuver the coat hanger, things were looking up! We had it hooked around the door handle, and it was only a matter of time before we got that blasted door unlocked. After at least an hour in the stifling heat, it was time to take a smoothie break.

I suggested we Google "how to unlock a car." There were several very interesting results, including something about a tennis ball, one with a cell phone, and one genius that suggested we call a locksmith. Of course, the very first result was for AAA.

I just happen to have AAA.

So, because ridiculousness follows me like the plague, we spent an hour trying to unlock my car--with KITCHEN UTENSILS--only to have a locksmith come unlock it free of charge.

The afternoon was redeemed when we finished the puzzle, though.

Yes. It was.

Actually the car situation was pretty hilarious, so the afternoon was fun even before we finished the puzzle. But you should never underestimate the power of finishing a good puzzle.
