MYSTERY SOLVED AND WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

So...here is the story. Picture it....back in Virginia....2011

One night while I was sleeping I became very hungry. I remember I had put my Beam N Read on the book shelf beside my bed. So....I slowly got out of bed, not to disturb my husband. I had the red lens on the Beam N read so it would not hurt my eyes and wake me up totally. I put it around my neck. Went downstairs, to the fridge....checked out the freezer....no ice cream...checked the fridge...no fresh blueberries (oh yes....love these)....so noticing that the light was so bright from the fridge, I took off the Beam N Read light. Laid it on the counter next to the fridge.



Did you really think I would take a picture of me in my nightgown....all of you will stop following me and go looking for that stick to gouge your eyes out!

The next morning I woke up it was gone. So.....I go to my sons computer to see if he had accentidentaly took it (that is his story). He said, he had ment to put it back (sure you did David)....but he said when he got up...it was gone from his computer.



We both were stumped. Did elves come in and use it and forget to return it?

So I hunted.

David hunted.

I must have that light.

So as I am hunting, I notice a sheepish look on my husband's face. Didn't really register on my mind until I saw out of the corner of my eye, the man slyly skulking around with something under his shirt. So.......I dropped what I was doing and watched this man try to cover his tracks.

He goes and lays it on the counter under some bills.... What is up with that....do you think I was borned yesterday? Oh no baby...not me.

So....I get my Beam N Read....hug it every sooooooo lightly and then go and confront my husband.

This is his story.

He said that he noticed that the light was by David's computer before he left for work and needed to find something in the bedroom and did not want to bother me. Just so you know, this man gets up around 4 in the morning....so can you see him skulking around with this light around his neck.



He then said that he forgot to return it. It was so light that he had it around his neck when he went to work.

How could HE???? That was my light!!! Doe he think he was James Bondo walking around with my light around his neck? Or did he think he would get extra brownie points with the boss if he had it around his neck incase the power went out? What ever he was thinking.....IT IS MY LIGHT!!!!! IF YOU BORROW IT>>>>>PUT IT BACK!!

Well....there you have it...now for the winner!!

  13. I just "love" when Blogger decides to post things ahead of schedule.

    What a fun story. I know when something has been misplaced it is almost always my Husband who moved it. The difference is he never admits it lol.

  14. Really cute and funny story, sounds like a husband, i Think your only solution to the problem is buy one for each of them and keep yours around your neck at all times. I could see that happening in my home. Men never like to admit they did something wrong lol.

  19. Woo Hoo! I was off camping this weekend in the Middle of Nowhere, Oregon and sure could have used it when I was out walking the dog and naturally my flashlight died just as dh handed me the poop bag to pick up after the dog (we were camping in a fairgrounds for a bluegrass festival). Thank you and Kelly for the great give-away.
