The story of my life

Once upon a time in a land far away lived a beautiful princess named Angela. (Isn't that how all stories begin?)

Well, Angela must have been short a few brain cells one day because she suddenly realized she hadn't seen her cell phone for 3 or so days. (I have no idea what could be going on in her life to contribute to her forgetfulness.)

"Oh surely it will turn up soon. I will keep my eyes open for it," she thought to herself.

Days went by and still no cell phone. She knew she had insurance and could make a claim to get it replaced, but kept holding off. She was sure that if she got a new phone, the old phone would suddenly appear. So she doubled her efforts to find it--calling places she remembered using it; searching under couches; revisiting the car and diaper bag--but no luck.

Yesterday, after two long weeks, she gave in and made that claim.

This afternoon the new phone arrived.

This evening she found her old phone.

The End.


PS--her husband wasn't even mad at her! He must be a real prince. ;)

Isn't it crazy how that works. Well, keep the old one in a safe place as a back up.

HaHaha...I'm glad I'm not the only one this happens to! I'm glad you found it after all. Like you said - it's a good back up!

Sounds almost like a page out of my book, except mine would stay lost.

So the question is, where was it??? At least you got a new phone out of the deal, right?
