I don't know how my friend Nasira does it. We are both in student government at our Junior College and after our meetings on Fridays we always play ultimate Frisbee with the others from student government. Today after Frisbee some of us were planning on going to a restaurant near by. Nasira worked at 6 and this was already around 4 when we were thinking of leaving and she was my ride home since it's on the way to work. So we all go to the restaurant and we get our food around 5 and knowing that we have to leave around 5:30. We couldn't even pay for our own meals because the restaurant doesn't do personal checks for big groups. So we made a mental note to pay someone back for paying for us in the group.
This is the good part. Nasira and I head back to her car and first we have to go to her cousins house to drop off something somewhat nearby. By this time it's already 5:25 and she is very low on gas and we are not even in the same city where she works and it's almost 5:30. She races to her cousins, runs to the house and runs back to the car an then heads for the mall where she works in Pleasanton and figures it's best to drop me off at the bus stop there since she is on a crunch for time. So we are on the free way from Livermore and that leads to Dublin then to Pleasanton to the mall. Changing lanes, speeding, stopping fast are all part of this adventure where time is ticking heavy and it's the only thing that you can think about. We finally get near to the mall and she is super low on gas and it's two minutes before 6. It doesn't take too long to find a parking space but she doesn't even turn off the car and instead runs to her work and clocks in and then tells her manager that she has to go back to her car to get gas because as of then there was literally no gas in the tank. We rush to the nearest gas station and she gets a half tank. We go back to the mall and then she drops me off at the bus stop and the bus is already there. She rushes to find a parking space and then runs back to her work. I don't know how she does it while still remaining cool and the whole time we are laughing and having a good time. I'm sure there will be more adventures soon to come!
