I was packing up for work this morning and some days like Sunday are not always too busy. Especially when it rains.
I grab the phone and unplug the USB charging cord from the laptop and pack up the laptop, stick the phone, my knife, and my wallet in my pockets...and lose the USB charging cord.
I get to work and unpack the laptop and I'm looking for the cord in my bag to tether the laptop to through my phone connection. It's nowhere to be found.
I thought now I left it at home and set up a hotspot instead on the phone.
I get home, Lisl and I go for a walk, then she eats and we go back out to potty and I'm setting up my laptop looking forward to a glass of Gewurtstrameiner.
I have turned this two-story house upside down looking for this cord. I have to conclude it is not in the house. I've even gone so far as to check the refrigerator and freezer thinking I had it in my hand when I was getting ready to make lunch and sat it down in the box. No.
I check the bathroom. Not there either. The bedroom, the utility room, even the garage, not there. I know Lisl didn't take it. She wouldn't do that, and I'd have seen her do it.
There is a black hole somewhere in my house. I just don't know where the event horizon starts...
Or I'm just getting forgetful and senile.
