not in and not out!

got back at about 7.30pm yesterday and decided to go to pasar malam. been so long since i last went to pasar malam... and craving for pickled mangoes! but shucks, i forgot to bring my car keys in my work bag, so terpaksa go up to the apartment to get it... after changing into more comfy clothes, i grabbed my wallet, handphone n car keys, stuffed them into my carry-on and just walked out, locking my room door and front wooden door behind me. and right immediately after slamming that wooden door shut, something went *duk* in my heart and with a short, sharp intake of breath, i froze momentarily. without even having to check, i realized.....

oh sh*t!! i forgot my house keys!!!

so i'm stuck in that tiny shoe rack space between the wooden door and the front gate, can neither go out nor back in. can there be anything worse than that??? apparently, there is...

frantic calls to my 2 housemates produced only voice mails... grrr... why aren't they picking up??? deaf or what?! i think i must've left 10+ missed calls on their phones! so now i'm stuck in/out of the house, with no clue of when help would come. i could be standing there all night! argh!!! what can be worse than this? but believe me, things CAN get worse! damn murphy's law!

my phone started giving low-batt warnings! omg!!! how long more can i keep calling? after a few more warnings, i decided to place a distress call to N and get her to help call my housemates. so after waiting for abt 15 minutes, N called back to say that housemates are on their way, and asked me to wait (like i'm going anywhere!).

with no extra batt life to chat away the waiting time with N, what else could i do? *sigh... so just stood there like orang bodoh, smilled shyly at my opposite neighbour when they came home, pretended to be sending sms-es, hoping passers-by would think i'm waiting for someone, and avoided eye contact with my adjacent neighbour when he came home, making as tho' standing there in between that 2 doors is the most normal thing to do.

at long last, after an hour plus 'ordeal', i was rescued... luckily my housemates were just having dinner nearby and didn't decide to go for midnight movies or something! but all is not over, as i still had to deal with my room door (house keys were in my room).......
