As I exited the car and hopped over a snowbank I heard someone yell, "You stuck, girl!?" I looked around and there was a guy looking at me out the window of the basement of the building closest to my parking lot. Here is how our conversation went:
Him: You stuck, girl?!
Me: Yeah, but it's okay. This is a non-essential trip.
Him: Lemme come dig you out.
Me: No! Really! It's okay! I don't actually have to go anywhere.
Him: Stay right there, I'm coming around.
Me: Wait! Even if you dig me out, what if I can't get back into a parking spot when I get back? There's no guarantee this spot will still be open.
Him: I'm digging you out.
There was no talking him out of it. He dug around my little Honda. I said one more time, "I really don't think I should leave." He told me to straighten out my tires and step on the gas. There really was no stopping him. So I did what he said. The car didn't budge. He heaved a huge, exasperated sigh, as if I was MAKING HIM DO THIS, walked around to the front of the car and shoved it. It rolled out of its space and I was off to Walgreens.
HILARIOUSLY the Sinful Colors polish I was after is called Hazard. How fitting. I drove through feet of snow to get this polish. And here it is, in my hot (cold) little hands.
You'd better be worth it, little friend.
The lipstick, by the way, is CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Hot Passion. It's a little matte, so I tried putting some red gloss over it, Urban Decay Pocket Rocket in Colin. Colin is a fireman. I like Colin.
When I got back to my parking lot twenty minutes later of course someone had taken my shoveled spot. As I predicted. So I gunned it into a snow-covered spot and I felt my car say, "I'm sorry Steff, but...but I'm stuck again now." I exited my trusty Honda knowing that it got me where I "needed" to go. So thanks random man for forcing me out of my parking spot and getting me stuck again. Your random act of kindness was kind, but totally unnecessary and in the end probably not worth it.
And here's my street (crappy iPhone picture in the dark):
Dear Cleveland in March: you can suck it. Do you guys have snow too or is it just me? :( Also, don't forget to cast your vote for the corals you want to see in my Coral Fixation series. Sinful Colors Hazard isn't included, but you'll see that one soon. Don't worry.
