The hubby wanted my Sunoco credit card to buy gas at the corner.  I took it out of my wallet and handed it to him.  He gets in the car and drives off.  Three minutes later he comes back and says.."You didn't give me the card.  I got all the way to the gas station (what...three big blocks away?) and I don't have it."
Well...I told him I gave it to him, then dumped my entire purse and wallet on the table.  He asks me why I have a vegetable peeler in there...I don't know.  Why would I know??? I think I was going to take it to my son's house one night for dinner, and they use a knife to peel potatoes.  I am not allowed to touch a knife.  Oh...I digress.
We search the entire house for this stupid card...then he frisks me!  Yes...at another point in time I might have enjoyed this but I am going through Lexapro withdrawal and my brains feel like they are going to blow out of my ears.  Plus...don't touch me.  No .  Never touch a woman who has just  kicked the crap out of a brief case and a two text books that were left in the middle of the floor where I have to walk. Ya gotta love those SSRI's!
He goes through every coat pocket in the house.  I search the car.  I am in the back seat rooting around under the seats and I hear..."Never mind...I found it!"
Where?  In his jacket pocket.  Do you know he didn't realize he has a pocket in his jacket? What jacket on this planet doesn't have a pocket??? Only the half dozen he has pulled off the hangers and thoroughly searched!  Yeah, right.  And I never realized I don't look like Cher.
He DID go get gas and brought back two monster boxes of chocolate chip cookies, knowing this would soothe the beast in me.  It did...ahhhhh.  I feel them moving down my throat to my thighs as we speak.
I'm not the only one that loses things...and that's that.

He actually frisked you?  When he was done did you say, "Now it's my turn?"  He would have run for the hills!  shocked

Donna your stories usually make me hungry. I have frozen chocolate chip cookie dough
in my freezer, that will be in my oven as soon as it is preheated.

So THAT'S what it takes to get 2 boxes of chocolate chip cookies, huh? Guess I best get my cards out and see if hubby is in a 'frisk'y mood...lol

Perhaps he hid the card just so he could frisk you. devil
It's the same here Donna my DH is as bad, if not worse, than I am when it comes to memory and losing things. It's a miracle we function at all around here. Someday when we are gone our children will find all the things we have lost and they will probably have some good laughs over what they find and where.
luv and hugs

   Boy do I totally understand this. Mine is a black hole in the car....bedroom....living room...kitchen.
I don't carry a purse and try to put everything in the same place all the time. Unless somebody
either of this rhelm or the next moves it.
