Adventures in Apartment Living

Two nights ago, Matt and I had a good friend over for dinner. The evening was fun and everything ended normal. However after saying goodbye and closing the door, there was a loud crash. Rushing to the door with soap dripping off our hands from the dishes we had started doing, we look out to see our friend's car precariously perched on a ledge that separates our parking lot from the neighbors. There is at least a 3-foot drop that separates the two lots. I wish I could explain in words the expression on our friend's face as he sat in his car teetering on the ledge.

Our neighbors got quite a kick out of it too as I'm sure they were convinced that we had consumed just a little to much alcohol that night. Funnily enough, none of us had!!!

So our friend is in the car unsure whether to get out, there are now 5 of us standing around the car trying to figure out what to do, and the car is still stuck.

Matt, my valiant husband all of a sudden decides to go into our apartment. I had assumed he had gotten a brilliant solution to the problem, but no, he came out with his camera in hand to document the event!!!
In the end, all of us got behind the back of the car to lift it and push it back onto the pavement!

In all, it was a great end to a terrific night!
