Ditz

I've been busy. I have worked the last nine days straight. Tomorrow is the last day at the house. I'm going to take the rest of the week to prepare for Thanksgiving. I've got such a very lot to be thankful for.

I've been a bit of a ditz. It was a nervous stretch of time between the interview and the hiring. Add that to my work schedule and trying to keep up with the house stuff, well...like I said, I've been a ditz.

In the midst of the busy-ness, I remember seeing the telephone in a very strange place. Very out of place. I remember clearly thinking, "Good grief. Why would that phone be there? I need to put that phone back. It will never be found if I leave it." I was in the middle of something. I don't know. Long story short, I did not put it back and the stinking phone has been missing for several days now. It's the second handset, but it's the only one that the caller ID button still works on, so that's a bit aggravating.

I think they ought invent something that connects the handset to the base. Like a cord, maybe. Sure would make my life easier. I bet I could make a million bucks off an idea like that...

Call your phone. Wander around the house until you hear it. Ask me how I know this works.

I have done that so many times! Some bases have a button you can push that will make the handset beep. That has helped me out immensely!

Find a teenage girl. Tell her that her boyfriend will be calling her on that phone, but only if she can find it.

'Works with occasional teenage boys as well, but the results may vary.

Well, problem is that I did not notice that the phone was actually missing until I was talking to a friend on the first handset and it started doing the low battery beep (from not being hung up, *wince*). That's actually when I realized that the second handset was not on its base. Calling me gets nothing. It's probably in dire need of recharging too. I call myself all the time on my cell (to find me). Unfortunately, I have really messed up this time.

We used to have 4 handsets. We now have 2 - 1 died, but the other suffered the fate of which you infer.

Cords on telephones would be a CORKER of an idea.
