Well now I feel stupid ....LOL

Again I was sitting here listening to the police scanner. I heard them say that they were trying to pull over a particular vehicle. I hurried over to listen more closely because the vehicle desrption matched my s/o's and I was wondering/fuming about what he got himself into now.... I didn't hear anything new so I quit listen and just waited here stewing about it...great another speeding ticket or some violation because his truck is not in the best condition. It took me 20 minutes of stewing before I remembered that his truck is sitting in the driveway LOL! It hasn't been on the road all week because of mechanical problems.

Thank you so much for the laugh!!! I do that kind of thing a lot!!!! I have been known for searching for something like a sewing needle or scissors and will finally find it----in my hand. I have two doxies that I am still getting used to (I originally had a rottie) and a day doesn't go by that I don't loose one or both of them. I look down and they aren't there, I turn and still can't find them. I can make myself dizzy and still not see them because they turn as I turn. I have been known for searching for paperwork that is extremely important and will be tearing the house apart and will finally find the paperwork in the file folder on my desk in plain sight. I think that it is the greatest thing in life to be able to admit to these little blurps in our memories. I think the greatest on my part is looking for my credit card and it wasn't in my wallet. I frantically tore my purse apart searching for it, and also did the same to my car. I then tore the house apart trying to find it (I was leaving to go to town to do some shopping. It's an hour and a half drive one way to get to the store) I had picked up the telephone to call the credit card company, reached in my shirt pocket, pulled out the credit card, dialed the number, started talking to the representative about the missing card-read the number off the card and then if FINALLY sunk in that I had the stupid card in my hand. The rep and I got a good laugh out of that one.

I am also well known for searching for my car keys. Usually when I get a new car I spend six months locking the keys in the car-I don't know why I have that kind of brain fart, but I do it consistently, knock on wood, until this car. The funnier thing is that I am known too for searching my purse frantically for the car keys with my right hand while I have the keys firmly clutched in my left hand--after about 10 minutes of frantic searching and trying to decide if I want to call for the tow truck to jimmy the lock I either look at my left hand or put the keys down on the hood of the car so that I can open the cell phone....DUH Hi Mooch, I was off MyLot for quite awhile because of illness, surgery and having my kids stay with me for 9 months (I posted the saga about them)and missed hearing from you. It's nice to be back and posting again.

Yikes! It only shows how cautious you are to your s/o's well-being, or you could be worried of the truck he's driving!(?) Listening to police scanners are fun at times, but it can also cause you a state of paranoia on some occasions! Blame it on the scanner, not the stew, okay?!
