Off the hook

by Jennifer on March 9, 2009

I know you’ve been worried, so this is just to let you know that we’ve paid our debt to society.

Today, the Boy and all the other 4th graders boarded three charter buses and rode down to Tucson for a field trip to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum aka Where They Sell Stuffed Javelinas.

He replaced the one he lost, and now our civil rights, including the right to lose more stuff in the future, have been restored.

Which means that the old Java should show up by high noon tomorrow.

Just in time for the shootout little  surprise I have planned for him in the town square.

I’m tellin’ ya – as soon as you replace the thing, the old one will magically appear… You’ll tell us when this happens, yes?

It always happens that way. You can search for months and days but the day you buy a new one the old one mysteriously shows.

I hope when he does show up, he’s got a good explanation for being MIA so long!

Good, because I only associate myself with respectable citizens.

Love the new photo! Looks professional. Who took it?

Thank GOODNESS. I was so worried about that poor Javalina-less classroom…

If I have to go back to a place where my daughter left something yet again, I’m gonna shoot myself

Isn’t that one of Darwin’s laws or something? Lose something, replace it and then immediately find the old version? I’m going to try that with the earring I’ve misplaced.

I can’t believe you still haven’t found that thing! OMG. Did you pick up an extra one just in case?
