Do you have a few items you just cannot live without? Have you ever lost that item and been devastated at the loss?
Somehow this two weeks ago I managed to do that to my favorite pair of sunglasses. I say favorite because while I have a pair of Oakley, my tortoiseshell sunglasses by JLO have my heart.
They are big, brown and mimic the oh so popular Jackie O look in terms of covering a big part of my face. However, unlike my pair of Oakley sunglasses they have a smooth nose piece so I’m able to push them up over my hair and back down again with ease.
Which makes driving to work and home again while the sun rises and sets a heck of a lot easier! (OK truth is it would be pretty easy to just put my other pair on and off but I’m lazy. Happy now?)
So you can imagine my dismay when I thought I had left them at work on a Friday. No worries though, I’d grab them Monday.
Monday comes and oddly, no sunglasses at work. I go back home and tear apart my bedroom, bags for work, and car. Guess what?
Tuesday was time to tear apart the office. Guess what. Yup.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday come while I continue to search for these sunglasses. I cannot be expected to adventure without these sunglasses! I’ve even called friends at this point looking for them.
(Did you think I was crazy Leslie? Alex sure thought I was for calling you.)
Finally its the weekend again, and Alex noting my continuing panic finally says “I will look through your car and if I can’t find them we can buy you a new pair.”
So off he goes to look through my drawers, my bags, my car. Nothing in the drawers. Nothing in the bags. Time to search the car. Guess What?
While I squealed in delight he shook his head before promptly informing me that now I was not getting a new pair and oh yea, yes I did have to go to the Moonshine Festival with him.
Do you have anything that you’ve searched and searched for only to have another person find within minutes? Please oh please tell me I’m not the only one!
