I know I left my Wonder Woman Pen on my desk last night. I know this because I told myself it was a mistake. A loose pen and a cat are an invitation for loss.
This morning I couldn't find Wonder Woman at all and a search ensued. She wasn't in the office, even under the bookcases. I eventually found her downstairs under the corner of a rug. My the adventures she had overnight!
My Wonder Woman pen is currently my check-writing pen. Sometimes it is the little gifts that are the best, although generally it was a good season for celebrations and gifts. Wonder Woman leapt out of my stocking into immediate use, where she makes a chore fun. The Edward Gorey calendar is about to go on my bulletin board, where he can bring smiles every day.
Now if only Wonder Woman could help me fish the sock out from behind the sock drawer, the one that I want to wear today and which is keeping me from closing that drawer completely. Perhaps I regret automatically throwing away all my wire coat hangers. Perhaps buying a dresser where the drawers don't come all the way out very easily was short-sighted. Actually, perhaps it is time to clean out the sock drawer.
Perhaps it is time to just sit back for a little self-forgiving chuckle.
Have a good day, and may your biggest problems be missing pens or lost socks.
