In a Clever Spot
Have you ever said that? Have you ever said that right after you have put something down, and then you turn around and can’t find it anywhere?
Oh, it must be in a clever spot.
So many times it is the important things I use daily that gravitate so easily to that clever spot…or spots as it may be.
It’s a short list.
Those are the big three for me.
Maybe it’s because I have lots of other things on my mind, but during this month I have:
- Lost 2 pairs of glasses…in the same day! Found one and promptly lost that pair again an hour later. Both had around the neck lanyards on them too which don’t do too much good when you take the entire unit off–glasses and lanyard–and place it down. Current Status: 2 newest pairs in clever spots, 2 oldest pairs in the dresser drawer
- My phone…a daily occurence. Thank goodness for those Find My Phone apps. Current Status: Online and charging
- My keys…since I’m home most all of the time and not driving much of anywhere now, having them doesn’t seem so crucial and I do have spares. Current Status: On the keyhook by the door
I do know that eventually my glasses will turn up because it’s just me here. GP has not magically grown opposable thumbs overnight to take delight in exercising new found digits in games of hide and seek. When I do ask her, “Where are my glasses?…my phone?…my keys?,” she happily wags her tail but gives me nary a clue. No, it’s not her.
I do laugh at all of this because if I did have my glasses, I just might be able to clearly see where I actually put them down in the first place. Instead I retrace my steps while pondering aloud–I walked in here and did such and such, and then headed over there and did such and such–and so on.
I’m sure everything will be waiting for me in all those clever spots I placed them, but since I don’t have them….my specs that is…life really does have some lovely soft edges.
Have a wonderful week my friends.
P.S. In case you think I might be losing my marbles, here they are.
