The mising sidebar had me imagining all sorts of dire things. I forget where I put things all the time and sometimes when I'm looking for one thing, I find another. That can either be delightful or frightening, depending on what I find. Once my husband lost a prized gold pocket watch that had belonged to his grandfather. He was so upset and he suspected the man who helped us move might have taken it. For years he lamented the loss of that watch. When we moved again, however, he found the watch way down in the back of the refrigerator behind a vegetable bind! Mystery solved. It had fallen out of his pocket when he was moving the refrigerator.
Then time past and one day years later, we couldn't find the spare key to his truck. We looked in all the usual places and finally gave up. He kept asking me if I had put the keys in one of my purses. I told him no, and even checked all of my purses--no easy task! About a year later, I went to get a jacket out of the coat closet and reached in the pocket. And there were the keys. He said "I told you so." And I said, "But they weren't in my purse."
My daugther recently got a new phone and one day after she'd been to the beach, she couldn't find her phone. She went back out to the spot where she'd been and started searching. Then she saw a couple with a phone. When she explained she'd lost hers, they said they'd just tried to call the first number in the address book--my number! Since I live about 600 miles away, that was kind of funny. But hey, she found her phone. Andshe thanked the honest couple for trying to help.
I don't know where our sidebar went or why it is hiding, but I do know that there is a lot of "stuff" in the world. No wonder we have a hard time finding things. Okay, let's hear about some of the things you've lost!
