Dialogue of Two Idiots

We pulled up to the house after the Credit Union Stocker Holders' Meeting.

"Where's my purse?"

"You didn't, did you?"

"I never do that."

Robert begins backing out of the drive headed back the five miles to the Civic Center.

"We should have grabbed my cell phone. Then we could have called your purse."

"I'm sure they've picked it up."

As we pull up to the CC.

"Just like I thought, everyone is gone."

"Let me just check."

"We should have grabbed my phone."

On the way back to the house, we drive by the Credit Union.

"Looks like they brought stuff back up here."

"Yes, maybe we should stop."

"No, let's just get home and you can call them."

Back at the house there is a message on the answering machine.

"Mrs. Bain this is Irma from the Credit Union. We have your purse here and will wait for you to come pick it up."

"I told you we should have stopped."

I drive to the Credit Union.

"I'm sorry to make you late getting home. Thank you very much."

"Don't worry about it. I happens to all of us at some time."

I still feel like an idiot for leaving my purse behind. I think that is the first time I have ever done that. I've left my credit card in a couple of restaurants before but never the whole purse. Hummm I must be getting old.

You have had a busy week with lot's on your mind. Your allowed to forget. Thank goodness you have it back!! Rick is forever losing something, wallet, keys, cell phone, watch! If his head wasn't attached I'm sure he'd lose that too!! LOL!

First time? No problem. It's when it becomes a repetitive issue that one begins to suspect the effects of age.

LOL, that is exactly why, when we go out to something like that, I DON"T carry a purse any more. Too many times I've left my purse here or there. It really ticks Joe off when I do.

Nah. I hope it's not a sign of old age. I've done it a few times. I have an awful habit of leaving my purse in my car.
