This Would Have Been Funny, but....

Okay.  When I got the dog I knew there was a chance that I'd get locked out of my house.  I mean--I'm in and out all day with the dog, hands full.  In winter this wasn't a problem as I kept my keys in my coat and always checked when I went out.  But now it's summer.  
 
So, last night I was checking my mosquito repellent.  This is a large fan kept by the door.  Here's the idea:  I open the door and this gust of wind blows those suckers  right back out the door.  I have a remote control to change the direction of the vortex.  It works for the most part except my recent tragedy made me think that remote control was my door key.  I was distracted to say the least as these two items normally bear no resemblance.    
You know that second where your brain is seeing you close the door, but your fine, slightly older motor skills is closing the door anyhow--brain screaming stop, stop, your keys aren't in your hands, you've got a remote control, a flashlight, and a poop bag.  And you've got the dog, meaning no way is a taxi taking you anywhere.  
But I closed the door anyway.  And I stood there looking back, realizing I was locked out with no way of calling for help.
And now for the funny part... I knocked on my neighbors door who was more than willing to invite me in and call a locksmith.  He's a nice guy, married with two kids.  And so the whole family stood there looking at me somewhat in shock.
 
It was then that I realized I'd not only forgotten to take my key, but had also forgotten to change from my ugly pajama tops.  A fashion statement never to be forgotten.

So what happened, did you eventually get back into the house despite the fact your were embarrassed to be in your ugly pajama tops, what was on the bottom? Interesting story. What\'s the conclusion?

A locksmith finally got me in. It took an hour, but my neighbors were great. I\'m thankful they were home. I\'m sure I was distracted by the loss of my son-in-law. I was wearing sweats on the bottom, the matching top still in the washer.

How funny. I thought I was the only one who got things mixed up. My kids finally put a touch key pad on my doors, so I don\'t have to look for keys. You are right thou, you have so much to deal with now. Please take care of yourself
