This morning Lou asked me to keep my eyes open for his phone while he was getting ready for work.
me: “Have you seen it today?”
This means it is probably lying under the couch or the coffee table. It is pretty common for him to fall asleep on the couch and then his phone some how slides under a piece of furniture. As he was taking a shower I started to look around.
I figured I should start looking otherwise he would be frantic and late to work if I didn’t help find it. Since he works a zillion hours a week to support us, I figured it was the least I could do.
I didn’t find it in the normal spots so I started moving all the pieces of the sectional away from the wall and lifting them up to look under neath. When I couldn’t find it I finally started calling it over and over again.
Probably should have started with this approach to save myself time but I hadn’t finished my coffee yet so I wasn’t totally awake. I thought I heard his phone faintly but I couldn’t seem to find it.
lou: “Did you find it?”
me: “No, I think I hear it but I can’t see it.”
lou: “It sounds like it is in the kitchen.”
me: ” Really? Sounds like it is in the TV cabinet.”
We started opening every cabinet and drawer until viola, he found it! Right next to the wine opener.
me: “Oh, I guess you couldn’t hold your phone and open your bottle of wine so you just dropped your phone in the drawer.” Hahaha
lou: “Great, now I know what your blog will be about tomorrow! I don’t think it is fair Pat gets a break but you post every dumb thing I say or do.”
me: “If you don’t want me to write about it, just say it.”
lou: “I don’t care.”
me: “Ok good, now I know what to write today.”
You may be wondering who is Pat and why does he get a break from the blog? Pat is our real estate agent and sometimes he prefaces our conversations with: “This can’t go on the blog.’
me: “Fine, I won’t put it on the blog.”
Have a great Tuesday!
