I am having another one of those are-you-kidding-am-I-living-in-an-I-Love-Lucy-episode weekends.
(Which actually happens more often than I'd like to admit.)
I would explain whats been going on --like the lights, appliances, and electronic devices that have mysteriously been turning themselves on and off all morning (and freaking me out) or the almost 300 hair bows and 40 skirts I have strewn about the floor (more about that later) or the lady at Wal-Mart who lost her mind in the line behind me this morning and started yelling about the temperature of the soda in the display case but you wouldn't believe me....
Just know that between a combination of events and upcoming obligations I'm on the verge of hysterics which brings me to the point of this post----some helpful advice from the one and only Heloise (the 1960's columnist and homemaking extraordinaire) written in 1965:
"...if you are on the verge of hysterics, dial "O" for operator on your phone. She is the best friend we have when we have difficulty making sense. And when you get on the phone don't forget these two very important things:
State your address first! (Just in case you collapse---and it happens often.) Then state what's happened so far so she can call the proper place and get help to you in a hurry. She knows.
Don't hang up the phone! Leave it off the hook so the operator can hear you. She wants to know what's going on so she can call more help if needed."
I'm off to go dial "O" so if you need me in the next little while don't call, my line will be busy...or else I've collapsed...
