He left it on a Delta Airlines flight to who knows where.
Yes. The brand new iPad that I surprised him with on Christmas morning.
The iPad that I so sneakily hoarded funds in order to keep a surprise from him, rather than just plunking down the American Express.
And, due to my incredibly sneaky hoarding of funds, when its loss came to our life, there was no American Express to step up and replace it.
I asked. But, strangely, they weren't interested in replacing an iPad that they didn't help us purchase.
We both have been in mourning about it for several days now. [I mean, thank heavens our diamond shoes are still safe. At least THAT gives us some consolation in our bleak, bleak trials of life.]
Well, yesterday afternoon, the Husband received a call from Delta that we never thought would come.
The iPad? Not lost! Turned in by some good samaritan and on its way to St. Louis. It's traveled to a few cities and seen the sights, but it will be in our hot little hands come Wednesday.
I know it's trivial, and I know it's just a thing, but it makes me oh, so happy.
There really ARE some decent people left in the world.
And wherever they are, whatever they are doing, I hope life sends lots of good things their way.
