never again... @ 07:16 am

I woke up at 1am because my mother was shaking my shoulder. She then told me that Ducky had taken the car to go get something to eat... and that was 3 hours ago. Panic insued as I woke up and put on clothes. My mother told me that Ducky was going to go to the Wendy's that was down the street from the Taco Bell... I started thinking trying to figure out what the hell he had been talking about. There is no Wendy's anywhere near a Taco Bell around our house. Although Ducky has lived with me in Houston for over a year and half now, as he doesn't drive he has never really learned his way around. I knew that he had gotten confused, but I figured when he didnt find it, he would find his way back home.

I tried calling his cell phone, but it went straight to voicemail... so it was either dead, or just turned off.

So, I get my mom's cars keys and start driving around... after 45 minutes, I decided that driving around without knowing where to look for him at almost 2am was a bad idea. I came back home and me and my mom started trying to think about what could have happened. As Ducky has no driver's lisence, I began to think that maybe he had gotten pulled over and arrested... so we started calling around to the police departments to see if he had been arrested and the towing companies to see if the cars had been impounded... no luck there.

So, right when I had decided that he must have been in car accident and I that I needed to call around to the local hospitals and see if he was there... he finally made it back home.

Apparently he had gotten terribly lost and had been trying to find his way back home... he pulled over and bought a map and the person at the convenience store was nice enough to indicate on the map where he was... so he looked up our street name, but it was the wrong side of town... but he finally managed to find his job location on the map, went there, and was able to get home from there.

I am so glad that he is okay and that he didnt get pulled over or anything. I made Ducky promise me that he would never leave the house without his cel phone again... and after the last few hours, I decided that since Ducky and I are eligible for new phone from Verizon anyway, that I would get him a phone that is compatible with Navigation software... so for $10 a month his new phone with also serve as a GPS device so that he can always find his way home.

I feel much better now.

Is it too soon, or can I start giggling now?
