I’m out in the South African bush looking for all sorts of wild animals right now — but this happened the day I left and I had to share it!
So Lindsay has a past. An ugly one, in fact. She throws things away. That probably doesn’t sound bad, but let me explain. She cleans things — but doesn’t pay attention at all! She has thrown away and “hid” things over the years — even throwing away (realizing it after the trash man came) my wallet with a few hundred dollars inside.
So I bought some new CF cards to replace my stolen ones. I’m looking all over the place for a missing one that I can’t find anywhere. After looking all day, I wonder to myself, “could Lindsay have thrown a brand new, unopened 32GB compact flash card?” So I ask. She insists that she wouldn’t have done that and goes off looking. After not finding it for some time, I see it in her eyes. Even she’s afraid she did it. Now this isn’t that big of a deal — but it’s just bragging rights for me to rub it in :P We have two large bins for trash that are literally overflowing. We figure we’ll go through them in the morning.
We throw the first bin all over the yard. Nothing yet. Lindsay is almost in the clear (at this point, she’d rather we had lost it instead of finding it in the trash ;). The second one?? Halfway through — nada. Keep in mind that this is the the same trash can we throw our two LARGE dogs’ poop piles in — so tons of fun for me :) At the very bottom? Take a guess…
I just looked at her with an arrogant smirk and she knew right away :)
Now Lindsay puts up with way worse having to be married to a total slob like myself, and she’s the easiest person to live with out there — so I figure her throwing away important things every once and a while is nothing to complain about ;)
p.s. I’m missing you (Lindsay) like crazy!!!
