Dumpster Diving Diva
Yes, I have to say, I probably looked something like this yesterday. I'm hoping that my bo-hiney did not look so much like this one though. OK, are you ready for this Lucy Ricardo story?
It was Monday and I was working. I parked in the hospital parking lot and was going to go in and market to all the social workers. I spotted a trash dumpster and decided I should take advantage of that and clean the trash out of my car. (When you work out of your car...you are constantly cleaning trash out). So, I gathered up all trash and proudly walked over to the dumpster that I was parked so close to. I'm always so proud of myself for making do on the run.
I proudly released my trash into the dumpster and before it hit the bottom I realized I also released my car keys! DANG IT! I could see them but for the life of me, I could not reach them.
First, I looked all around for witnesses (none) so I dipped in slightly with my arm reaching as far as it could.....no go. Not even close. I thought to my self "Self, surely there is something in that car that can help you reach those keys". All I could find was my lint brush. It did not help any. I found myself with legs dangling much like this pic and my tummy being squashed beyond anything I have ever felt. Still, not enough.....no keys. I tilted out of the trash can and noticed at least 3 cars that were pulling into the parking lot that surely had witnessed the crazy lady diving in the dumpster. I was desperate!
I noticed a nice looking young man talking to a nice looking young lady several feet away. Did I mention that he had really long arms?
I explained my situation and he kindly (and very easily I might add) grabbed my keys from the dumpster for me. He and his cute little girlfriend laughed with me. After it was all over, I thought to myself, I am Lucy Ricardo incarnate. Where the hell is Ethel?!
