Short-term Memory Loss!!
Am I getting older or am I a pathetic multi-tasker? This Thanksgiving weekend joins my (huge) list of 'unforgettable day(s)'. Thanksgiving day morning, after tons of planning and rescheduling our trip (to relatives' to spend the holidays) due to weather, traffic etc., with everyone at the doorstep ready to climb into the car, I didn't seem to find my purse! After a quick scan in all the usual places and not finding it, I concluded that I must have left it somewhere during an outing. Thursday being a holiday on account of Thanksgiving, we couldn't do much. Friday morning, in between his precious cricket match, my husband called every credit card company/bank and blocked/froze all the accounts. I called every friend, store that I visited during the previous days only to get a negative! The inventory of my purse discussed a dozen times, my outings reconstructed step-by-step another 'n' times, everyone sharing their stories about how they lost(and sometimes found) their purses, our wonderful long weekend whizzed past! Sunday afternoon, even while driving back home, we were almost set to drive to the Police station to file a complaint. For some reason, we decided to get home first and even before my husband finished unloading things from the trunk, he saw my smiling face and understood that the 'culprit' purse has been waiting in a 'safe place' at home all weekend!!!
