I Love When That Happens
I distinctly remember having a third pair, which is the one I wanted to replace. I even went so far as to get a coupon for a pair of free eyeglasses. Today, that all changed.
This morning I left the house early to attend a seminar on eating disorders. It had rained last night, so I wanted to play it safe and take a rain coat. While it drizzled on the way there, there was no other major outpouring of rain and I didn't use the coat.
After a scheduled stop at the dentist, I drove home knowing that parking would be scarce on alternate street cleaning day. But I got lucky. My spot was just around the block. So I grabbed my things for the quick sprint to the house and I notice something big in my rain coat pocket.
That's right - 9 months after misplacing them, I found my third pair of eyeglasses. The same kinda thing happened to me during the summer. I had replaced my Sansa MP3 paper which I lost, only to find it in the pocket of a purse I haven't used in ages. And how did I find it - by brushing up against the purse while looking for something else.
The morale of the story is that either I'm getting absent minded and need to chill, or G-d is the best practical joker in the world. I think we all know the answer to that one!
