My Vera bag in Poppy Fields - gift from my boyfriend
So, today was one of many rainy, soggy, cold days that we have had this week. Basically, I have had a need to carry my umbrella with me every day this week. I was in a bit of a rush this morning, so when I couldn't find my umbrella in its usual spot by my front door, I gave up looking and left for work, hoping it would stop raining by lunch time and/or I would find my umbrella in my car. Well, I searched my car quickly and didn't find it so I reached my hand inside my bag (see above) to see if I had shoved it in there. Nope. Not there either.
Lunch time came and it was pouring outside by this point. Not wanting to have any worse of a hair day than I was already having, I asked any of the girls I worked with if I could borrow their umbrella during lunch, snatched one up and left.
An hour later, I came back to my building and sent my purse through the metal detector at the front door as usual. Just as I am getting ready to walk away and get back to work, one of the security guards says to me, "Carrying a back up umbrella, are you?" and smirked. Um. Erm. What? Oh my goodness, is THAT where my umbrella is!? I ask. He started absolutely cracking up and then showed me on the screen.
Um. Yeah. My umbrella was in my massive bag and I had totally missed it.
Only I would A) forget I shoved in into my massive bag and B) still not find it after searching inside it. Seriously. So silly.
How is that for a mid-week giggle?
