I get up on Tuesday to go to a doctor's appointment at 10:30 in the morning. Dr. Kyle would be making sure the chemotherapy device that was implanted is situated in the right place and working. I'd been waiting a month to get this appointment so I could stop worrying. Obviously I didn't want to miss this appointment.
Mom's driving me so we head out to the car at around five minutes to ten. There's a sprinkling of snow on the car but it's starting to melt in the slightly warm sun. We get in to start the car so we can warm up the windows and scrape off the ice only to find... nothing. Nope. Deadsville. No vrrrrrmmm, vrrrmmmm. Not even a cough, cough. Just a click, click, click. DAMN. The battery's dead and it's cold out here. Mom starts to swear like a sailor. (she only does that when she's really frustrated). What are we gonna do? We'd forgotten the cell phone upstairs and even if we had it we wouldn't have had the doctor's phone number programmed in. We were sooooo screwed, and gonna miss this appointment. Mom gets out and rushes to the corner of the building, muttering to herself.
Just as she's about to disappear around the corner a guy (our hero) nearly bumps into her. She stops short and asks tentatively whether he might have jumper cables???? PPPLLLEEEAAASEEEE SAYYY YESSSS, I can nearly see the thought bubble over her head). Hero guy not only has cables but will help in any way he can. He seriously is the nicest guy I've nearly met in ages, lol. As I said, I didn't even get his name. As our car made that glorious vroom, vroom sound I nudged mom to stick her head out the window and get his apartment number. I had ulterior plans.
Long story short, we're only a few minutes late to the doctor's appointment and since doctors are always running late anyway, we're good. Now you know why I have a hero worshiping crush on some guy I don't even know. He rescued us and he'll never know just how important that appointment was. I got him some really decadent truffle chocolates and I wrapped them with a bow and added this card that I whipped up in, well, two hours or so, lol. He was worth it and you know I always love making art.
I'm joining this friday's Paint Party Friday, jump over and see the spectacular art submitted. I'm already working on next week's painting as it's much more involved than my usual. Yes, there's actually a background to this one, who knew? Anyway, here's the start of tomatoes. Wonder what I should title it? How about "Dreaming of Tomato Jam". If you come up with a better title (try to make me laugh, I dare ya), put it in the comments section. Oh and officially, Thank you to the wonderful guy who rescued us on Tuesday February 28, 2017 in our apartment building parking lot. As it says above, YOU ROCK.
