Big Al’s Blog: Happy Valentine’s Day to Me!

Its 2 a.m. and I’m wide awake. In fact, I’ve been awake since 1 a.m. I have made the obligatory visit to facebook and announced to the world that I am awake. No one really cared. I even thought about getting on the exercise bike but that was a crazy idea.

My smoke detector is chirping away every 30 seconds. And YES, I finally took the battery out but it didn’t matter… it’s still going. I guess it has some super natural smoke detecting power that allows it to still chirp even with no battery. Amazing.

I am spending the weekend in New Orleans and I really have no idea what we are doing there. We are hanging out with “her” friends. I have no idea who they are, and they have no idea who I am. I do love meeting people so I guess I’ll just go with the flow.

Some days are great and some days are not so great. This one has started out suckie, and its not even 5am yet. I know very few people will relate to this but I have to tell this story of how my day has started. Like I said, I’ve been up since 1 a.m., wide awake at 3 a.m., I decided I would get up and get ready. I have to back up a bit.

I own an old school bus that I rent out to people for parties and stuff. and every once in a while, my old bus has to go to the shop to get worked on, and if I have to get it towed, it costs about $200. Well, yesterday, a guy came in to rent the bus for this weekend and I needed to put it in the shop today so it would be ready to go. But rather than tow it this time, I decided to have one of my guys pull it with my truck. This is all scheduled to happen this morning around 6 a.m., but for this to take place, I would need to leave the key to my truck and the key to the bus inside the bus in my special hiding place. Ok, done. The keys are hidden and the bus is ready to be towed and both my truck and the bus are at my bar. (I am rolling in Dr. Girlfriends car today since she is out of town.)

Well, this morning, I needed to get a shirt out of my truck. So, I rode up to the bar…that’s when I found out that the little secret compartment that I left cracked to get into the bus was now locked. Did I do that? maybe when I closed the little secret compartment, it actually locked. Now, I’m screwed. The guy can’t get into the bus to get the key to the bus or my truck. it’s 4 a.m., there is a spare key to the bus, it’s inside the bar. GREAT!

Wait…My Key to get inside the bar is on my huge key ring, and that key ring is inside my truck. And just in case you missed it, the key to my truck is locked in my bus. UGH! Spare truck key? lockNo idea. I’ve never seen it. Ok, I called a locksmith. Now, the $225 I was trying to save on the tow truck is not really that big of a deal. And a locksmith at 4 a.m. is how much? $125. The locksmith shows up, gets in my truck in like 30 seconds. Yeah! I have the key to the bar to get the key to the bus and truck to tow the bus to the shop. I get inside the secret compartment and there’s no key to the bus, no key to my truck…What the hell!?!? Then, My friend shows up to tow the bus and I look at him and said, “dude, I guess I’m going crazy. I could have sworn I left the keys here for you.” That’s when he told me that he was nervous about leaving the keys in the secret spot and he came and got both of them last night!

Perfect!!!!!!!!! Good Morning Everybody! And have a GREAT VALENTINES DAY!
