This morning I had to go to a public office for a stupid document (well not so stupid, it is my id for Spain…). I was very nervous because I always get lost driving in Madrid. So I took my best friend Tom Tom and I started my Passat. I did not consider only one thing. The most of the way is underground, so Tom Tom could not receive the signal from the universe to show me the way to heaven… I mean, I got lost two times


at the end, following my intuition, I could reach the office


I decided not to consider myself lost at all.

Then I had to wait 45 minutes for my que number to be displayed (I wonder why the gave me an official appointment at 13.15 if I have been called at 14.00. Faith mistery). I have been working and facebooking while numbers were changing on the display. I tried to keep my mind busy, but believe me, I could not.

B170, B171, B172 and then, finally my bloody B173. I hate waiting for burocracy stuff.

Then I got my document.

I get out of the office and I was really proud of myself. I did not get lost (yes, I did not) driving to the office, I had my document and I had all the afternoon for me.

So I took my Passat, I switched on my friend Tom Tom and I asked to myself if I’d be able to come back home. I get in the bloody underground tunnel and drove back for 10km at 70km/h  (yes guys this is the speed limit). I was so boried… so I put the volume of the radio up and I  started dancing and singing like hell the song the radio was playing. Here you are:

Tonight Tonight

I love this song. I swear I lost all my tension.

Anyway, on the way back home – while singing and dancind – I got lost again. But I am here right now. So I decided to consider myself my own idol, just for one day.

oh, I forgot to say…. I usually give names to things. Antonio is my Tom Tom. Just because you should have thought the title of the post was wrong. It is not.
