Made her look

Dearra had a check up today. First thing she took off her jacket and shoes so they could weigh her and check her height. Then they check her pulse, blood pressure, temperature, hearing, vision, etc. They made her pee in a cup (fun), and all sorts of other fun stuff. Nothing much new except that she needs glasses. So we go to leave, and we can't find Dearra's jacket. And we know she brought it in, because she had to take it off when they weighed her. The nurse looks high and low for it. No jacket. So we walk out to the car, and I'm carrying my purse and jacket, and I realize, hey wait a minute, and look at the size on my jacket. Oops, it's Dearra's jacket. Mine is in the car. Bad me, made the nurse run all over looking for a jacket that I was actually holding. Dearra was a little annoyed at me I think. Hey so she can't see and I can't remember. We all have our flaws, right?

Isn't that terrible? It is like we get disoriented or something. I have had that happen. Call it a 'durr moment'. We do all have our flaws and idosyncrancies as well.

Poor nurse. I thought I lost my phone once. I was buying at a store and I pulled out my wallet and I was already holding my cellphone. I remember paying for the fee then put my wallet on my pocket then checked my other pocket for my phone and it wasn't there. I looked at the cashier with my brows up and she was pointing at my right hand with her lips. I looked and there it was, I was still holding it. I can remember two other stories. I guess we all get one of those from time to time.

Yeah next time she'll probably rip the jacket out of my hand and check the size. OR she will never again allow herself to be talking into getting the same jacket that I have...

I've done stuff like that many times. Look high and low for something, only to find it in the other pocket I didn't check or laying right in front of me on the counter. So, yup, we all have our flaws!

Ah but have you made somebody else look high and low when you were holding the item in your arms?

Yeah, my Mom. I've had her check her purse, pockets, etc. for the keys to her van, because I swore she didn't give them to me. The whole time, they were in my hand AND neither of us noticed they were in my hand. She's 82...and I'm only 61, but we both tend to completely lose it now and then. I think she has more of an excuse than I do...

Yeah, not only is she older, but if the keys jingle, she can probably plead bad hearing.

Looks around nervously: Flaws? Where? Not me! I am an example of a perfect pair of X chromosomes What you did was nothing!!!! Picture this: Last night. In bed. Good book. Reached for meds. No meds. Meds in office. Called security at work to put him on alert as he would have to get them out of my office as I am not getting dressed. Turned on all security lights. Leaves house in nightie. Barrelling down road and cell rings. Next door neighbour asking if I was okay. Explained situation re meds. She said that she thought I was going on a hot date when she not only saw me leaving the house but it was obvious that I was not wearing a pantie Asked to bail me if police stop me and ask me to get out of car.(She's a lawyer) Returned home. In bed. Cell rings. Neighbour said that I was back so fast that it must have only been a quickieNow what would Dearra say to that?

At least your neighbor didn't have to bail you out. How many chances are you going to take with the police anyway? :D

Haha! A senior moment! Reminds me of the time I went looking for my car keys. When I kept running from the bedroom to the garage for the keys that I had in my hand! No matter where I looked I still couldn't find it. Ooops.

Yip we all could have little flaws, like me wearing my glasses and searching the whole house looking for it. I was scolded and made to remember the incident time and time again. I learnt never to forget something while wearing it

A sure sign that your child is growing up, you mistake her clothes for yours. Both of you are better off than I am. I can't remember and I cannot see either. It is good to get checked up on.

Silly mom!! Hee hee. Just don't tell the nurse or else they might charge you extra on that doctor bill - ha ha!! Scary when you can barely tell your clothing from your kids . . . my daughter is only 5 and now it's almost hard sorting out our socks in the laundry!!!

This happens to be the only item. I had bought the jacket at Old Navy and it was nice and warm, and when we went there looking for Dearra, it was the only one she liked that was in her size. Probably never again will we have exactly the same jacket (next year she'll have outgrown it, no doubt).
