From Today’s You Can’t Make This Stuff Up File: 7:00am, the phone rings. My wife is at work and cannot find her cell phone. Asks me to find it and bring it to her. I search the bedroom, unmake and remake the bed, look in robe pockets, on vanity, on makeup table, on dresser. Head to the home office and look by computer, in her “stuff chair”, carry bag, etc. Head to kitchen, check by coffee maker, on table, but microwave, by fridge, on counters, no luck. Head to laundry room, check on washer and dryer, shelves, and in coat pockets, nothing.
So I get Ryan ready, get Wade off to bus stop and drive Ryan to school. I park and head into the school office to get Martha’s car keys so I can go search her car. Look under seats, in console, in glove box, under car. Still nothing.
Head back into school to tell Martha the bad news. She decides to check her purse one more time. NOTHING.
Then, she checks her BACK POCKET OF HER JEANS! BINGO!
At least I know where to start looking next time this happens….
