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