Lost and Found

After staying in a hotel for 3 1/2 days, who can't find their room from the parking garage?  Me.  Okay, I did find it after ending up back at the parking garage and 3 more failed attempts.

I have made an appointment to go to the vet and have a locator chip placed in my ear, because one day I am going to end up somewhere that I know not, where I will not have cell phone coverage. 

Who goes to girl's camp and forgets the bag she packed?  Me!  How do you go camping and forget all your stuff?  How do you go to a camp you've been to 3 times before and make 2 bad turns?  And I'm just saying, if you don't have a bag of stuff to look after, how is that you lose your watch and your cell phone while you're there?  Yes, thank you very much for trusting me with your girls at camp.

You see this is why I married my husband.  He saves me from embarrassing moments like when he said to me a few Sundays ago, "They both look great; just choose one."  I wasn't sure what he meant until I looked down and noticed I had on two different shoes. He is my right arm and my left brain and happens to be a very good kisser although he is VERY practical and not very spontaneous.  When I first met him, I thought he was a stuffed shirt.  (I still think this sometimes.)  This almost kept me from marrying him.  After all, how could I go through life with somebody SO organized and SO perfect and SO right all the time?  And then one day (when we were engaged) as we were walking across campus and the thought was running through my head, 'Can I really marry this "Ric" in the mud?"  Out of the blue, he picked me up and set me down in a mud puddle and I have been deeply, madly in love ever since.
