My purse went missing last night. It was my own fault, as I was distracted by my marathon blog-writing session and wanted to finish it up after the library closed. I sat on the curb with my purse and laptop, using the Wi-Fi outside the library. When that got too warm, I moved to a shaded location — and forgot to bring my purse. Going back for it an hour later, of course it was gone.
Contents: $15, my CELL PHONE, an already-closed credit card, checkbook full of checks, MN driver’s license, library card, health insurance card and my Morning Grind coffee card. The only things I worry about are the checks and license. I can drive somewhere and get another phone if I need to.
The police guys were so nice. They were out on a domestic when I first called in, so it took another hour to file a report. Meanwhile, I searched the bushes and trash cans all around the outside of the library, to no avail. I fantasized about having a sniffer dog who could smell me and then find my purse, but that was not reality.
I’m praying for the purse to be found.
