When I was 6 my new stuffed panda up and disappeared and I’ve never gotten over it. I still think it might turn up any day.
Same for the Alden Nowlan “Smoked Glass” poetry book I bought at a yardsale for a buck. Vanished in 1991. (Insult to injury, if you can find a copy now it’s worth A LOT.)
And last week I misplaced (I hope misplaced is the word, and not “lost”) my little digital recorder for songwriting ideas. Now I’m on my third recorder, as about a year ago my first one was stolen with my laptop bag. My laptop wasn’t in the bag at the time, whew. Even now, when I go back to the cafe where I last remember seeing the recorder, I expect it to be lying on the table where I chugged a half-caff and wolfed down some banana nut bread.
What is it with these things that go missing we’re never quite able to get over the loss of?!
What has gone missing of yours that you still think could turn up?
