Pajama Road Trip


Me and Midnight (my dog) have never been on a road trip. So right after this crazy incident we finally had our first road trip.

My mother asked one of her best friend's husband Troy to drop off some chairs that they used for a house party they were throwing two days ago. I wasn't aware that he was going to show up at the house. The way I knew is when someone rang the doorbell ten times and Midnight was barking surreptitiously at the door. It woke me up from my sleep instantly. I literally jumped out of bed and fell to the floor.

Since I was half asleep that point, I headed towards the front door to see whoever was there. While walking, he was still ringing the door bell, acting like I was still asleep. Once I reached the door I shouted "Alright you son of a gun. Stop ringing before the shoot through this door."

There was no more ringing after that. I opened the door and there was Troy telling me that there was a couple of chairs that needed to be picked up. I was so drowsy I didn't hear a word he said. All that was on my mind was picking up these chairs and letting Midnight go outside to use the bathroom. While outside, the wind was blowing like crazy. It was so strong it closed the front door the second I exited the house.

I grabbed a couple of chairs and started walking up the stairs. The first thing that was on my mind was to put these chairs inside and go back to sleep. Seconds later, I realized my plan wasn't going to happen. I grabbed the door knob and I discovered that the door was locked. I was outside in my pajamas locked out of my own house. Troy got frustrated when he realized what happened. All he wanted to do was get those chairs out of his Jeep and go back home.

Since I didn't have the key, me and my dog got into Troy's car and drove all the way to my mom's job, which was on the other side of the city. It was a wonderful road trip that was cut short once we got the key and had to go back home. While in the car, Midnight was running all over the place. Then on three to four occasions, we opened the window and he had his mouth open while the wind was blowing. He wanted to get out of the car a few times by jumping out the window. So I grabbed onto his body and kept him from leaving.

It was an amazing sixty minutes that I would never forget. I hope Midnight and I can go on another road trip like that.
