Oops Wrong House October 15, 2005
I spent most of the day working on homework. After finishing up calculus, I moved on to programming and completed three of the four assignments we were given. In the afternoon jim called and told me that they were going to go and hang out at Laura’s house in Dixon. I got a haircut, and then drove there.
On the way, I got lost and took the wrong freeway exit. I had to call them and get instructions from Jenna. I finally thought got into the cul de sac and rang the doorbell of the house. It was competely dark and, after a long time, a lady came to the door.
“…Can I help you?”, she asked.
“Uhhhh….. Is this Laura [LastName]‘s house?” I mumbled.
“Who?”, she inquired.
I repeated the name. She thought about it for a while and looked at her neighbors houses.
“No… I don’t know a Laura [LastName]“, she told me.
By this time I had already backed away from the door a considerable distance. I apologized and turned around to go back to my car. Maybe I had gotten the house number wrong… Maybe it was the wrong street… Maybe I was in the wrong city…
Suddenly, I heard a lot of people laughing behind me.
“Come back!” she called.
Wow… Turns out, everyone had been watching me from inside while Laura’s mom played a gigantic prank on me. She’s a terrific actor…
Once inside, we watched the first harry potter movie, had some ice cream, and talked. Jim, richard, and I had a sequence of memorable dialogue.
