So Proud To Find That Damn Phone.

I've always believed that it's important to be able to laugh at yourself.  Now, that probably came about a little from self preservation because from early childhood, I've given myself plenty of opportunities to be embarrassed .  I was, and still am, one of the clumsiest and scatterbrained  humans that ever graced this earth.  Yes, some people would say, 'crazy'.

But, with the heralded advance of time, I seem to have reached new highs (or lows) in those achievements. Just the other day I did something that both embarrassed me and amused me at the same time.  I remember thinking,  "Thank God no one else knows I did that!"

Oh hell, I might as well share my funny story with the world.  Everybody needs a laugh huh?

Last Thursday, I finally received a replacement phone from Verizon because of issues I am having with my original phone.  I drove into town where the reception would be better to facilitate changing the phones over.  After getting the new phone up and running, I went into Pizza Hut for lunch and continued to work on setting up the new phone.  At one point, my husband called and we chatted for a while as I sat in the restaurant.  While listening to him, I was idly playing with the old phone and getting it back in the box to be returned to Verizon.  Suddenly, I realized that I couldn't find the new phone anywhere!  I continued to listen to him but I was beginning to panic.  What in the hell had I done with the NEW phone?  I slid out of the booth and looked under the table, fished frantically in my purse and dug down in the back of the booth seat.  I even began eyeing other customers, thinking they might have stolen the phone from the table.  All the while I was not wanting to let my husband know I had already lost the new phone.  

(Anyone figured this out yet?  Cause I sure hadn't).  I got so flustered that I ended my conversation with my husband rather abruptly so I could concentrate on finding that damn phone.    Yep.....nothing gets by me.  That's when I found it.


Holy cow, I think they call that senility.  I prefer to think of it as 'blonde to the roots'.  You can call it what you want.  I was just proud to find that phone.
