My dear, intelligent, hilarious, insightful, opinionated, beautiful friend Vicky is in town from Colorado for a job interview and to visit friends. She’s been staying with us and discovering the perils of driving in LA without a fully-charged cell phone and a Thomas guide.
At 4:45 tonight, she called me to say that her interview was late, and she was stuck in traffic on the 55 coming north from the South Coast Plaza area. She still wanted to see her friend in the Loma Linda area, so she was heading up there, then coming back to our house later.
At 7:45, she called again. From the Irvine Spectrum. Having never made it to Loma Linda.
Now that? That is hard to do.
I confess, I laughed for a full 5 minutes. Poor friend.
