My adventure was ... I REALLY needed to get to Simplicity to choose costume from the ones they still have in their storage closet that will be sent to San Diego in July for a display of my work at the American Sewing Guild conference where I'm the keynote speaker!!!!
And, because of my current work and extracurricular activities I couldn't afford more that one day to do this. SOOOO, I treated myself to an Amtrak ticket to make a one day Washington to New York to Washington trip a little more bearable. BUT, there was this little problem of a train derailing two days before my trip on the very tracks I would have been traveling on.
I wisely got a refund for my train tickets and bought bus tickets instead.
BUT, as I was getting on the bus Friday morning, the bus driver wouldn't take my ticket because in my haste buying the bus tickets, I accidentally bought them in the reverse direction. Meaning my ticket had me starting in New York instead of Washington. I went over to the stand by line I got on ... phew! I was only going to have about 3 1/2 hours at Simplicity at best. So, if I hadn't gotten on that bus, I would have had to just give up the trip.
Anyway, in the afternoon, I then had to worry about getting on to the return bus, which after a fair amount of trouble, I did. But, I was so tired when I got back to Washington, I got on the Metro to go home, in the wrong direction ... grrr. Two stops later got off, got back on in the correct direction. My wonderful hubby picked me up at out Metro stop.
So, that said, a couple more silly things.
