Serendipity

As some of you know, my cell phone has been missing from my life recently. This is not particularly wonderful because I have people calling me about jobs based on my updated resume on careerbuilder. I also put it as the contact phone for hot meals this week (oops).

Yesterday I was madly trying to tie up the loose ends at the now former salt mines. One of the loose ends were the "Buy ten get one free" lunch cards good at the cafe in the building. I was going to give them to a co-worker because I always saw him down there. I knew I had two cards and had found one, but was determined to dig and dig through the purse through the other.

Guess what was at the bottom? Yes, I had *looked* in the purse, but hadn't emptied it out. Until then.

I heard my grandmother's "If it had been a snake it would have bit you" and laughed at my silly stressed self.

I was pretty happy to see it, as you might imagine. Next phone I get should have a gps so I can figure out where I put it ;).

my gramma too. usually about my hairbrush. since we didn't so much have cell phones.

glad it turned up.

maybe you should join the trendy people and get a red one? profits to some good charity and it's harder to lose :)

Is this the same phone that did not want to work until I cleaned out the keypad or something?

If you get a new phone, I wonder if you can get one with a clip or something, so you can clip it to your purse.

that would be it.

I will ask Ms Mags if I can inspect her Ecogroovy Red Phone some time soon with the idea of new phone.

Yay!! Isn't it such a wonderful wave of relief when you finally see it?

[I lose and find way more than I'm willing to admit in public.]

I assume the battery was dead? Because the way I find mine is to call it up and follow the ringing. :-) (Sometimes I even find the purse that it's in that way. If only I could call my keys!)

Yeah, I tried that ... probably about a day too late ;).
