I had a Girl's Night Out last night. We went to PF Changs where I had the double pan fried noodles (why fry something once when twice is so nice?) AND some spring rolls AND a little mini chocolate mousse dessert thingy. It was delish. Then we went to see Bridesmaids, which was seriously the FUNNIEST movie I've seen in years. YEARS, people. I almost peed my pants I laughed so hard.
Speaking of peeing during movies, did you know there is an app for that? My friend Meg told us about it last night. You tell the app what movie you're seeing and then you press go or some such button right when the movie starts. The app will then tell you the optimal times for getting up to go pee during the movie! And THEN, while you're in the bathroom, the app will tell you what you're missing while you're peeing!! Genius, I tell you. Man, I really need to get an iPhone.
In other news, I almost got arrested between dinner and the movie. Twice.
See, I got in my car and was happily driving along following Meg's big black car when I realized my phone (not an iPhone) was making funny sounds. So I looked at it, and realized I had pocket dialed somebody. No big whoop, right? Except I had pocket dialed 911. Yes. I HAD POCKET DIALED 911.
So what did I do? Well, I panicked and hung up of course. And then my phone flashed this weird message that said something like "Emergency Callback Mode", so I panicked EVEN MORE and then popped the battery out of my phone. I don't know why I did all this. I have a strong flight instinct when things start to go wrong so I was in major "la-la-la they'll never know it was me!!!!" mode when making these split decisions.
Then, while I was distracted with the 911 incident, traffic slowed to a halt and my friend Meg veered off suddenly on an exit. I was like "whoa Meg, you crazy," but I followed her anyway because I figured she knew a traffic shortcut or something. Except then I realized that the big black car I was following was not actually Meg's. So that was unfortunate.
So I started to go a new way to the movie theater since I had taken this random exit, and yes, I was driving a little too fast because by this time I knew all my girlfriends would already be at the theater. So I'm flying down this hill, when I spot the fuzz (is that what you call them?) in a neighborhood pointing the radar gun at me. Now I TOTALLY panicked because (1) OMG speeding ticket, and (2) what if there was already an APB out for me because I just prank called 911??? Jimminy Christmas.
Thankfully I didn't get pulled over, but I was so busy watching for the cop in my rear view that I drove right past the movie theater. So then I had to find ANOTHER new way to the movie theater and by this time I was totally late. Gah.
Once I finally got there I was so stressed out I spilled everything to my friends. Since they are sane and rational people, they convinced me to put the battery back in my phone and my wonderful friend Anne even promised to answer it if 911 called looking for me.
Thankfully the movie was freaking hilarious so I stopped stressing. Although all the cop scenes in the movie did give me a little PTSD, I think.
Moral of the Story: Don't prank call 911. And if you do, just talk to the person who answers because it's probably not that big of a deal. Also, learn what type of car your friends drive. And don't speed. And pay attention to where you're going.
Or maybe just ride with one of your friends to the movie theater. That seems way easier.
