I did a major oops yesterday. I can laugh about it now - in fact, I laughed about it as soon as I realized what I did. It's just hard to comprehend how I could have done that. Let me give you the background story:
I take piano lessons Thursday mornings from 7 am to 8 am. They're in University Park, which is way across town from where I live and work. I'm supposed to be at work by 8:15, but obviously I'm a little late on Thursdays. I'm usually there by 8:20, but it depends on traffic. Yesterday was one of those days.
Rose had phoned me at about 5 to 8, interrupting my piano lesson. So then my lesson went on a little after 8. When I left Lore's house, I was already talking on my cell phone because I had to arrange for a plumber to go by my 4-plex, and he had told me to call him at 8 am to make arrangements. I had to get that call out of the way before I could drive. I then got into my car, got into traffic and was speeding my way back across town. When I got to school, I had to park at the far end of the parking lot. I dashed to the library and go there just before the first bell rang at 8:25.
I went upstairs (the library has two levels) to teach my class, then I noticed that my shoe seemed to be untied. That's when it hit me. I wasn't wearing lace up shoes! At least, I hadn't been when I left the house this morning. I was now. They weren't my shoes! Lorna has her lesson right after mine, and I had stolen her shoes! Mine were still at Lore's house across town. I phoned and made my apologies and we'll swap shoes back next week. (Poor Lorna, my shoes wouldn't even fit her. Her shoes are much too big for me.) I had to phone Rose to bring me another pair of shoes to wear at school.
