Just Call Me Nerd's The Word
Am I the only one that walks around the house with a book in her hand?
Now I'm not saying that I do that all the time, but sometimes I will carry it with me as I walk downstairs to see what my mom wants, or carry it with me as I go into the kitchen to make a sandwich, etc.
Sometimes I set it down and that's when the trouble starts. I set it down to pick something ELSE up and pretty soon I can't find my book.
This is a crisis, people. I walk all over the house desperately asking family members "Have you seen my book?" I always lose it right when it gets to the good part, too.
Once my husband opened the fridge to get something out of it and there was my book, lying on a shelf. "Did you lose something?" he asked.
Another time he found it in the freezer where I had set it down for "just a moment" and forgot about it. I'm sure he greatly feared for our babies about that time, but I promise I never set one of the kids down and forgot where I put them, and I certainly didn't put them in the freezer.....
I did, however, get their names mixed up from time to time (still do) but that's another story.
I once found my book on top of my son's bunk bed. I had set it up on the top bunk when I came in to kiss him good night (on the bottom bunk) and then couldn't find it until the next day, when I came in to kiss him goodnight again.
Once I found one in the laundry basket, buried beneath the towels. I had it in my hands when I walked by the laundry room, unloaded the laundry into the basket and placed the book on top to carry it all upstairs. By the time I got upstairs things had shifted a bit and the book got buried. Later I started looking for it and couldn't find it...until I folded the laundry.
My husband once actually found my book in the mailbox, of all places (not that that is any stranger than the freezer, of course). I had it in my hands as I walked outside to get the mail. I placed it inside the mailbox while I glanced through the mail and then forgot about it and closed the lid. Hubby came home, went to get the mail and found my book!
At this point you're probably thinking that I need to have that thing surgically implanted so I won't lose it and you would be right. Except that I would need to change it out ever so often, like earrings or something.
I have a horrible confession to make. I have even walked downstairs while reading a book.
Bad. Very bad. But if it makes you feel any better, I was walking slowly and holding onto the railing at the time. Good thing, too. Don't ask why......
What can I say, I love to read! It rates right up there with chocolate. Just call me Nerd's The Word. Or maybe don't call me at all as I'm probably reading.
