It kind of looked like this one..
Everyday I would go outside to the end of my driveway and look to see if it was still there and everyday is was just begging me to come get it. I even tried calling another neighbor for an email address but there wasn't one.
Finally, I couldn't take it anymore.
It took a little courage but I finally walked over to their house and looked at it. The sign said it worked and it was free!!! I tried to lift it but that thing was too heavy for me (only bad part about being a single girl is there is no built-in muscles around) to drag home to my house and I was too embarrassed to knock on the door to ask them for help. So, I walked home knowing that I would lose this treasure.
Even though it sat for two weeks I knew this was the weekend it would be gone. So, I sat undecided, trying to convince myself that I didn't need it on Saturday. Meanwhile, I walked out to look every hour to see if it was still there. Then I sat some more trying to convince myself that I have ABSOLUTELY no room to put it. I told myself that if it was still there on Sunday I would do something about it. On Sunday morning, I walked outside at it was still there! I proceeded to argue with myself again about how I didn't NEED it and that I just WANTED it because it was free.
Even though knowing and that it was an internal struggle I ignored my instincts and walked away.
Big Mistake! Huge!
I walked outside one more time..and it's GONE. (Insert big sad face here!)
I knew that my indecision would be my undoing..curses, foiled again!
Why does this happen to me? What in the world do I have to be embarrassed about?
..Next time I'll make sure to follow my instincts..
and snatch it in the middle of the night.
