Whoever said ignorance is bliss I'd like to take to Zupas for some lobster bisque, because ain't it just the truth?
Ignorance is definitely bliss.
Especially when it comes to leftover Halloween candy. Some things we just don't need to know about, am I right? Or am I right?
Which is exactly why I don't clean very often.
Although I made an exception today because my purple cell phone, containing extremely rare photographic evidence of the prophet, went missing last week.
I didn't consider it LOST, per say, I just figured it wasn't FOUND. There's a difference, you know. There's a definite difference.
When something goes missing around here I don't immediately fetch after it. I like to wallow in the idea that it's around somewhere and will turn up eventually.
See, if I search diligently and don't find it, I have to confront the possibility that maybe it's going, going, gone.
I'm just not that confrontational. Especially with reality.
donkeybray suggested I go to wheresmycellphone.com for help, so I did, but they didn't know where it was either. Then the Nutty Hamster Chick suggested I ask the Universe for help, so I did, and guess what!! He knew exactly where it was.
That's right! The Universe trumps the Internet again.
I FOUND IT!
In the last place I looked.
(Why are things always in the last place we look?)
So sneaky how the Universe works. He guided me straight to my missing cell phone, but somehow tricked me into doing all my spring cleaning along the way.
Smarty pants! Always finding some purpose in the process.
My process began at 6:00 a.m. when I started turning all the couches upside down. I didn't find my cell phone, but I did find all those missing popcorn kernels I've been looking for since Thanksgiving.
By 9:30 I had cleaned out all my closets, scrubbed all my bathrooms and cleaned and vacuumed both cars.
Then suddenly, there it was! Wedged in between the two front seats of my Sante Fe. I wouldn't even have noticed it had it not started singing The Fray, You Found Me at the top of it's lungs.
How cute is that?
Thank you, Universe! LY!!!
