Do you listen to iTunes on your iPhone? Do you sometimes find that the shuffle isn’t really shuffling ALL the music? I have over 3000 songs on my phone, so I shouldn’t be hearing repeats in a week. More like in 100 days. I don’t walk THAT often (90 minutes a day, 5 days a week, max). So during my walk I pulled out my phone a few times to skip those repeat songs, and apparently I pulled out more than that.
When I went to pay for breakfast, I couldn’t find my driver’s license. I was so sure I put it in the purse, too.
Now, when I walk to Bob Evans, I usually take the long way: 3.25 miles. But my knee had been acting up (and I was walking slower), so I went a shorter way: 3.0 miles. When I walk home, I usually take an even shorter (but still quiet) route: 2.45 miles. And if my feet hurt or the weather is unbearable, the most direct (and noisiest) route: 1.75 miles. I wasn’t in the mood to walk back 3 miles (it was hot and muggy and my knee was still feeling funny), but now it looked like I had to.
So, during my walk home, I scoured the ground every step of the way (even walking on the wrong side of the street—the part that doesn’t have sidewalks; good thing there wasn’t much traffic!). Then I reached the part where I would have walked if I had gone the most direct route. Still no license in sight.
A mile left to walk and I wasn’t feeling very optimistic.
But as I approached my neighborhood, there on the grass of the first house was my license! You don’t know how HAPPY I was to have found it. I was so afraid I was going to have to make a trip to the DMV. Yeah, I could have been mad that I didn’t have to walk the long way home, but hey, I found it and didn’t care!
So yeah, I got LUCKY!
This Sunday, Hubby and I will be going to see an Abba concert (four people who look and sound like them, I assume). We’ve seen these kinds of concerts before and really enjoyed them. I mean, what’s not to love about Abba’s music? I was a fan from the beginning!
So… Have you ever lost something and got lucky and found it? My hubby lost his flash drive this week. The book he’s been working on is on this drive (a text book for the college course he teaches). Silly him hadn’t backed it up recently and we can’t find that thing anywhere. I know he’ll feel extremely lucky if he does find it, but I’m thinking that sucker is GONE. Teach him not to back up his work. You’d think he’d learn from me!!!
Have a great weekend!
