Today felt a little like falling through the rabbit hole.
All that was missing was the floating cat with the cheshire grin.
It all started when I was asked to step in for someone at work and do someting I've never done before. Nothing crazy, just not a typical part of my day.
The first thing I had to do was drive a big, really really big, van across town. Just to give you some perspective, I drive a little Nissan Versa and that feels pretty big to me. Holy bananas! I had to walk up two steps to get into this van. I needed two hands to climb up so first I had to toss my purse in. The damn van was so tall I didn't even see where it landed. Once I was in, I could look down at the roof of the mini van parked beside me. I could see over fences and into backyards. Driving through the streets, I pulled up to a red light and found myself beside a city bus. I was sitting about a foot higher than the driver.
That was about the point when I felt like I had eaten some of Alice's magical cakes and become this teeny tiny person in a very big world. Or at least a very big van.
So I drove this beast across town to an elementary school. I walked into the school and immediately felt that I had gone from being a wee little creature to being the jolly green giant. Water fountains came up to my waist, bathroom stalls were much smaller than they should have been and the bench I was told to sit on came halfway up my shins. It was a five foot drop down to the bench and, once I got down there, I felt like my knees were up near my ears. If you want to feel graceful and ballerina-like, do NOT go into an elementary school and hang out with grade 2 students. Seriously.
Leave the school and hop back into the magic alien bus. By the time I got back to work I felt like my hands and feet were too big for my body. I walked into my office, tossed my purse on the chair (and missed), banged my knee on my desk (which I never do) and sat down waiting for the Red Queen to show up with her minions.
It's a wild and crazy world out there folks!
