I’m sure this has to be a “Man Thing”. Tonight, we took off to my parent’s house. My mom had planned a Birthday Celebration for The Hubs, my sister and my (honorary) sister-in-law (she’s actually married to my cousin but we claim her as a sister).
My dad called and asked me to bring some coffee that was in the freezer of the refrigerator that we borrowed from him while awaiting the arrival of our new fridge. I took the coffee out and set it next to some coupons I had clipped for my mom (well, really for my dad since somehow, my mom has worked it out that my dad now does the grocery shopping…that maybe is another blog) and my purse. In our hurry to leave, I walked out with the coupons but without the coffee (you can see what my priorities are, right?). About a mile down the road from our house, I remember that I forgot the coffee. We u-turn. When we get back to our house, I ask The Hubs to run in and grab the coffee. This should have taken about 37 seconds. After 104 seconds I decide, that he has no idea where the coffee is…so I jump out of the truck, walk in and grab it and call for The Hubs. He walks out of the kitchen eating a cookie, telling me that he couldn’t find the coffee. I said, “I see, yet you found a cookie”. Of course, he blamed me because I didn’t tell him exactly where the coffee was and he was looking in the general area where coffee should be….
When you can’t find what you are looking for, just eat a cookie.
In The Hub’s defense, we have had to implement some things to help us function with losingites (long-term disease characterized by losing items, especially items that are “right in front of you”). For example, I have a key hanger for keys because if The Hubs doesn’t put his keys in the same place every time he walks in the door, he will not be able to find them later. Seriously. This morning, he couldn’t find his wallet. He has losingites and I am beginning to think it’s catchy…I still haven’t found my iron or all our bathroom towels or several other household items.
Please pray for us. I believe there is hope for us.
