This might sound really silly, but right now, I’m praying for my hat.
See that hat I’m wearing in the picture with my best friend, Ann? I got that hat in 2007, when we went to a VT game. I LOVE that hat. They don’t make it anymore.
One time, I lost that hat in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and took Brokaw back up to the Wal-Mart parking lot with me, to try to sniff around and find it.
That was two years ago.
Now, I have lost it again.
I left it on the Metro.
It was the third thing I left on a Metro train JUST THIS WEEK.
I also lost a hat I just got a couple of weeks ago, as well as my black texting gloves I also just got this year.
I am usually so careful and responsible. I am the girl who locked her keys in her car in high school, so she has the habit of making sure she has her keys before closing her door. I used to be the girl who looked back to where she was sitting to make sure she had everything.
Guess I’ve gotten away from that. I blame my iPhone. I’m constantly distracted. Oy.
I didn’t bother to report my original hat and texting gloves. But my beloved VT hat? I totally went on Metro’s website and filled out a “lost and found” form. Hopefully I will hear something this week. If not, I am going to be really sad.
Of course, it’s just a thing. I realize that. But that hat has great memories attached to it. Like that game with Ann, and the fact that I wore it the night Michael asked me to marry him. Plus, I like to show my support for Virginia Tech. For the football team, and for the school in general, because even though I didn’t go there, I’m a proud fan, and I always pray for the Hokies. They’ve been through so much.
