Being Lost - But It's Not Me This Time

You see this wonderful piece of technology:


It's a NEW phone charger. Do you know how hard it is not to have one?

Well after our move home from Virginia (yes, I know that was forever ago) my charger was missing, even though I put it where I knew it couldn't get lost!

I figured it would show up eventually though and went on my daily business. Luckily, I had my car charger still so my phone was limited to being charged only during the the morning in the car while I was at the gym.

This really wasn't working out too bad - except on those days that I would forget to plug it in or wasn't able to make it to the gym. After several of those occasions and several months later I gave up on my charger ever showing up. I figured the moving goblins had gotten a hold of it and it was gone forever.

So I went out and bought a new one. And then 2 days later I found this:


Go figure! The goblins must of dropped it off since they are in the area for Halloween!

**On a side note - maybe I am lost and going crazy - I'm posting pictures of wires!

Oh, I have done the same thing on more than one occasion :) Nevertheless, your story made me smile.

I think I had 3 chargers for my last phone, yet zero car chargers. that was pain in the ass!

LOL! I do the same thing! I love how each new phone needs a new charger too. If they were smart they would make a phone that used all the same stuff!

That kind of thing happens to me all the time. Not sure what black hole things drop into here, but they usually always come back out.

I think your gadget stealing goblin visits our house too. We've "misplaced" two digital cameras! One fell on the floor and rolled under the bed...and into an alternate universe, apparently. Haven't seen either of them since.

Oh wow! I have done that myself so I can sympathize. It is so frustrating to spend the money and then find the item shortly afterwards.

I've done both of those things: wait forever thinking it will show up someday, somewhere, and finally buy a new one only the immediately find the first one. kids!!!

What do you have to say?

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
