Lyrics of the Day

Damn. This morning I read Jen Garrett's blog where she said she lost something (she didn't specify what exactly, so I guess I can't help her look for it). I offered her these Lucinda Williams lyrics:
I think I lost it
Let me know if you come across it
Let me know if I let it fall
Along a back road somewhere
Money can't replace it
No memory can erase it
And I know I'm never gonna find
Another one to compare
Wouldn't you know, within an hour of posting those lyrics, I discovered that I also had lost something: one of my credit cards. Damn. I had it at the grocery store on Sunday night, but now it's gone. Fortunately, a quick check of my online account showed that there haven't been any charges on it, but I still had to cancel the card just in case. Besides that, the signature strip on my other credit card is completely worn off. This sort of thing always happens right before a vacation, just when I really need credit cards. After all, I don't want to hike around Colorado with a two-inch-thick wad of twenties stuffed in my pocket. With a little luck, I made the phone calls early enough that I will get replacements before we leave. Coicidentally, I figured out my card was missing as I was about to call to reserve Craig Ferguson tickets. Now it turns out that delaying our departure by a few days to see him may help me get my cards in time!

Luckily, I found what I was looking for and with minimal fuss. I'm sorry about the card, though. I feel somehow responsible.

Since the card was missing for two days before I noticed, I'll let you off the hook. But anything I lost yesterday is all your fault.

I'm glad you found what you were looking for -- that puts you a step ahead of Bono.
