OK, that doesn't alliterate, but I've done this for years, I'm out of alliterative stuff. Also, yowie! That thumb pushed and prodded and I know what's wrong, but that doesn't make it less ouchie at the moment. (Good news. My spine is where it should be. Bad news. The tendon issues in my pelvis won't let it stay that way. NEVER have untreated tendon/cartilage issues in the pelvis. Ten years in, and I can safely say, no, time doesn't heal those wounds. You just get a ton of scar tisuse.)
Now, off in the great wide world we go:
WHAT DO WE LOSE (besides patience, energy, and the ability to do yoga?)...
Turns out smartphones top the list these days, followed by, on average, according to four different websites I split the differences on:
Keys, wallets, TV remotes (?), eyeglasses, headphones, and one's backpack or purse. (A backpack?!)
The good news is, we misplace or "lose" something nine times a day ----- or each of us loses 9 items daily ----- and obviously we find them again. So are they really lost? I leave that question to philosophers.
On average, we also don't spend more than 10 minutes looking for anything we've lost, save my marbles, which I've sought many years now.
You also lose a lot of these, too, BTW:
Pens, umbrellas, shoes, and clothing. (I won't ask how one loses one's clothing outside the home. For me, I'm boring. Just cleaning under the bed finds most things.)
Weirdly, the items I lose most are actually not on that list. I usually lose my nail clippers, and my favorite baseball cap.
Oh, y'all... Yinz... however you want me to say "you" collectively... (Ustedes? Ihr? Wy?)We might get a new fridge by Christmas. (Please support the needed infrastructure at our ports. If the recent backups at LA don't convince, consider that this is $$$ at stake, not politics, okay? Thank you. ) I was laughed at when I asked for a repair. "You fridge is over 10 years old!"... Apparently, 10...
