Hey Ellen, I've lived one of your fears. I got locked out of my apartment in Boston, in my pajamas, in February!!! I was practicing my "summary judgment" argument for my big,culminating first year research assignment with a friend. She came over and asked me to come down to her car and walk her into my apartment because my loud frat-boy neighbors were having a party and there were too many drunk guys hanging around making her feel uncomfortable. I stepped out the front door to see where she parked and like that, a gust of wind came from nowhere and slammed the door, locking us outside on the porch which was covered with snow! We were both in pajamas and had to call the locksmith on her cell phone. He came a half hour later, we practiced our speeches and both got great grades on our respective presentations! But, oh so embarassing!

I'm pretty sure I interrupted you while speaking when we were hanging out together. If so, sorry about that. It's a flaw of mine.
