Do NOT silence your cell phone!

<a href=”; target=”_blank”></a>


Admitting nothing – here’s today’s word to the wise: If you are prone to loosing your phone on a constant “now where’d I put that?” basis, do not, I repeat, DO NOT silence your phone to be kind to your 3rd-shift-sleeping-hubby. Calling yourself to find said phone is impossible.

On any given day, it’s not that big a deal.  Oh it’s annoying.  I think I will die without my cute little appendage attached to me so I am accessible to one and all, but truly, it’s not a big deal to be without it till my wonderful hubby would wake up and we can truly search the bedroom (which is the only room of the house left unturned in it’s entirety.)

But today I am expecting a host of critical calls and missing every last one!! It seems an evil joke to have lost the phone today of all days.  I am fretting and worrying and stewing and pacing.  There’s  not a single thing I can do about it but just let the day play out.  I could go wake  him for the 5th time and search again, but truly that wont find it.  I am gonna have to turn on lights and strip the bed down because it is just hiding and laughing it’s silent little head off in evil amusement at my agony.

As soon as Derek awakens, and I return home from the important appointment I will NOT have my calendar along for the ride for, it will show up magically and all will be right with the world.  But until then I will remain in my tortured state.

But never fear.  I have learned my lesson.  Never silence your cell phone.  Not whilst home.  In public with it safely in my purse where i can happily ignore said silenced phone?  Sure!  With pleasure!  But at home?  Where I am prone to set it down while doing 4 things at once and forgetting why I walked into a room in the first place, let alone why I may have moved the phone from where i keep it?  Yeah, it just aint gonna happen.

So there’s your tidbit for the day.  And in the words of the great Lily Tomlin, my phone’s gonna keep right on saying, “one ringy dingy, two ringy dingy,” and I will stay a happy woman!
