....because I lost my phone.
Don't you love it when your brain works like that?
The silliest thing happened to me last night!
When I pulled into our driveway last night, I was especially careful to park as close to our neighbor's bushes as I could so that Jesse would have room to pull the trash cans past the car when he got home. As soon as I opened the car door, I realized I had really parked too close, because I could barely open my door wide enough to squeeze out! I had a lot of things to carry, so I held them all close to me as I wiggled out of the car and squeaked along between the car and the bushes. When I reached to close the car door behind me, I heard a thud and knew that I had dropped my cell phone. That poor thing gets dropped more often than Donald Trump gets to say, "You're fired!"
After I had opened the front door and set down my armload of things, I walked back out into the darkness to find my phone. Tough cookies. It was pitch black, and I couldn't see the phone anywhere. If only I could call it so that I could see the screen light up in the midst of our neighbor's crazy overgrown bushes! But...I didn't have anything else to call it with (we don't have a home phone).
I even brought out our flashlight, but it was no use. I couldn't find it. It was too cold to wait outside for the offchance that Jesse might call me to tell me he was on his way home.
I headed inside, but felt bad, because I knew Jesse would be worried if I didn't answer the phone when he called me. My phone is an attachment of me! I always have it within arm's reach.
I kept thinking "I just need to call him and tell him not to call me because I lost my phone. Ack! That doesn't work!"
So I went inside and sat in defeat until I heard Jesse's car come up the driveway.
I bounded out the door with the flashlight to kiss my hero and have him find my phone.
My hero met me at the door with a bouquet of tulips.
What a guy!
He was just as surprised to see me as I was to see the tulips.
Apparently, he was going to hide them and give me one tulip each day til Valentine's Day.
Such a sweetheart!
Well, he found my phone as soon as he called it, and now there's a beautiful vase of tulips in our bedroom reminding me that I have a man who loves me enough to do anything for me. I love him so much!
