Postscript to perfect pedicure: parking ticket!

Parking ticketThat about sums it up. The incident I mentioned earlier about the unsatisfactory pedicure had a reverberation through time, namely a $75 parking ticket. The appointment had run over the scheduled time (torture can be time consuming), and my parking had run out. Unbeknownst to me, because the ticket wasn’t on my windshield when I got to the car, I had been issued a parking ticket within 11 minutes of the time expiring… Someone must have taken it to put on their own car.

I am never parking in that lot again, I swear. This is the second time I’ve gotten a ticket there. Anyway, a phone call talked the charge from $75 to $45, but it was a painful postscript to a disagreeable episode.

C’est la vie, especially to one who is prone to irritation and reactivity!

Anyway, in more cheerful news, I am going to a sweat lodge in Marysville, WA on Wednesday, and will pick up the thread of the sweat lodges at the Wilderness Guides Gathering soon.

  1. There I was settling in for a nice foot massage when a lady entered and asked for quarters for the parking meter – ooops – I forgot to feed the meter. She told me not to hurry – the cop putting the ticket on my windshield was what motivated her to ask for quarters!

    It was great to relax knowing that the universe was unfolding without me feeding the meter.

    Oh, I discovered that economic hard times in Walnut Creek California had resulted in raising the fine from $25 to $35.

  2. I can’t believe this happened to you too! I bow to your elevated state of being, which allowed you to relax and enjoy the foot massage. 🙂
