Nobody noticed anything; it wasn’t them who planned on having this perfect day. It was me. So no harm, no foul, I’m still in the game. Things were moving smoothly.
All I know is I experienced a miracle and my evening turned out way better than it could have.

Stuffed into this car was a very angry looking large mama that was just Testifying to that poor soul that was on the other end of her speakerphone. She had on what I think was a shower curtain or possibly a mumu in “flower print” and was wearing a shower cap. She was amazing to behold.
