Pet Store? Yes as in fish, P-E-T

Alrighty so Nicole (one of my 3 bestest besties) and I were in Chico which is a good 2 hour drive from where we live. Chico is an awesome college town you know of Chico State University, number one party college in the state followed really closely by Humboldt of course.

Anyway, we wanted to find a pet story in Chico cause we'd gone to all the ones where we lived and didn't find any plants for her aquarium that we liked. So after we had breakfast at the Italian Cottage we walked back in and asked the guy behind the counter were there was a pet shop besides PetCo and PetSmart.

He had us repeat the word pet a million times.
Ginger: "Pets as in animals, mostly fish. P-E-T"
Waiter: "Pets? Okay well go down this street and turn left and you'll see Cigaret World, they sell tobacco but they have that in the back too."
Ginger: "They have pet stuff?"
Waiter: "Yeah or stop by Block Buster and see if there's a bald guy working there, he's really into all that."
Ginger:"Okay thanks."

So we drive to the Cigaret World and in the back they do not have P-E-T stuff they have P-O-T stuff. I mean we do live in California and lets face the facts it's totally legal here. "Doc I have back pains", "Alright here's a script". But what's sad is that Nicole and I totally walked in to a canabis store and didn't realize.

We explained to the lady who was working there that we got sent there probably out of a joke but some pot head and we wanted to find a pet shop. She actually sent us to a lovely pet shop.

We laughed pretty hard on the way to the pet shop.

yep my life is a comedy, blah blah your Ginger.

My life is a comedy

I think I may make a new category for My Life Is A Comedy cause things happen that don't quiet fit under weird happenings.

So one of my best friends in the whole wide world is in the Navy, pretty neat isn't it? Well she had two weeks off for Christmas and I basically lived with her for this duration of time. Only going home for my little brother's birthday, Christmas, and my birthday (woot I'm 20 now!).

Any way on the 26th she and I were heading to the movies and I was driving. I made it very clear that I needed to stop for gas saying, "Nicole we need to stop for gas don't let me forget." Problem with this plan? We started talking and talking and giggling etc. I mean what do best friends do once they've been separated for four months?

We forgot thats what we do! So I pull over and just about a quarter mile is the next gas station (up hill). It wasn't raining but Nicole grabbed my umbrella and I was grabbing my rain coat cause it was raining all day and had JUST stopped. When a police car pulled up behind my car and asked if us ladies were okay.

He offered us a ride to the gas station... when we went to get in the back of the police car it was so full of stuff I had to ride in the front with him. (I know right I would have laughed but ... I didn't). He said he could give us a ride there but not back cause he's not allowed to transport fuel.

Well we get there and I had to buy one of those red gas things and fill it up. We left the umbrella and our rain jackets in my car (no idea why! we had them in our hands!), and it started poring big fat rain drops. She was wearing this light green sweater, and I was wearing this pathetic excuse for a sweater cause her mom got it for me. It didn't even have a hood.

So we ran down the hill in the rain, Nicole caring the gas, all the way to my car. Where we tried to pore gas into my car, but those new red gas tanks are total crap. It had this white tube that came out the top, well it ended up in my gas tank (it's all good no worries). On top of that it didn't want to pore, but I found a blue funnel in my trunk and we just took off the lid and free pored it. Which wasn't easy we spilled a lot, gas kinda burns I didn't know that.

Oh raining the whole time, and Nicole sailer that she is cussed in the general direction of the sky and it stared thundering (we laughed). But we found out the movie we were going to go see got sold out any way, we wanted to see True Grit. We saw Black Swan, worst movie I've seen in a very long long time.

Any way we found the whole thing really funny and to quote my best friend, "Emily, only with you would this be so much fun."

I forgot what I usually say at the end.... blah blah your Ginger
