I suppose I should have expected this. It is in some small way reassuring to know there is not after all a black hole in my home.
This morning I pulled a jacket I rarely wear out of my closet. Why a jacket on the first day of August? Because I have to dress for office air conditioning.
A few minutes ago, my hand brushed against my pocket and felt a rectangle of hard plastic. Puzzled, I pulled it out. It is the driver license I lost weeks ago.
Why did I put it in that pocket? I have no idea. A back jeans pocket, maybe, if I don’t want to carry a wallet. But this has me baffled.
The photo is better on the old one, though, so back in my wallet it goes.
