Here’s another funny story about losing things.
Remember the Soles cork flip flops I found in my closet that had never been worn and, after wearing them, I loved them? I lost them. Honestly, how can you lose a pair of shoes? You leave the house wearing them . . chances are you return to the house wearing them . . but not always! 🙂
It was September 16, when I wrote about them on the blog. Probably about September 20, I lost them. I searched everywhere. In the closet. In the bathroom. Under the bed. In the downstairs bedroom. In the sewing room. I searched in places I knew those shoes couldn’t possibly be but I never found them.
Last Saturday when I got in the Highlander to go get Addie . . there were my shoes.
I remembered that Vince and I were going somewhere. It must have been when we were going to Lowe’s in Carthage to get the tile because we thought we might have to go to Neosho so we took the Highlander. I was wearing the flip flops but didn’t want to wear those out in public. Vince was in a big hurry so I grabbed my tennis shoes and socks to change in the car, which I did. Therefore, I had on tennis shoes but also had the flip flops in the car and forgot to get them out and didn’t remember that I had left them in there.
Speaking of lost shoes . . when Addie was here last weekend, she brought some big, fuzzy unicorn slippers. When I got ready to take her home, she didn’t have those slippers. I said “Where are your slippers?” She had slept in the basement, had worn them down there and didn’t want to go down and get them so she said “I’ll leave them here.” I think she thought I’d run down and get them for her but I didn’t care if she left them here. If she didn’t want them enough to get them . . fine.
I was talking to her later in the week and I said “Addie, I didn’t see your shoes in the bedroom.”
I had not yet made the bed down there because I was going to take the sheets off and wash them. She said “Oh, my shoes are in the bed because my feet got cold, I put the slippers on and then they fell off in the bed!”
I’m glad she told me because if I had gone to take the sheets off and wasn’t expecting to find unicorn slippers in the bed, that would probably have scared me.
