DoDaDoDoDo Inspector Gadget DoDaDoDoDoDaDo and My "Almost Panic Attack"

For a couple months now, I've been looking for a particular gadget. I looked everywhere...Macy's, Kohls, BedBathandBeyond, Penney's, LeGourmet Chef, who cant seem to keep them in stock...the girl there was the only one who knew what kind of gadget I was talking about. So, anyway, I turn to my trusty friend, The Internet, and sure as shootin, she leads me to the exact spot I need. I end up at QVC and there it is, all shiney and new......

I even made sure I had a pineapple in the house on delivery day. I know what you're thinking, "what a loser" but hey, the little things exite me, k? Don't judge.

Now....anyone who knows me, knows I'm not one to go into a tizzy about anything. I don't know where the panic button is around here cuz I never use it. That's me..calm, cool, and collected. Just a character trait.

But today,GOOD LAWD I came this close. I chopped the top of a pineapple off and I open the drawer to find my new toy and *GASP* it's not there. Its not in any other drawer, or cabinet or a pot or pan, no not in the dishwasher. IT'S FRIGGIN DISAPPEARED!!!!!

My heart started beating a little faster...I'm muttering stuff to myself...I'm ripping stuff out of everywhere and I just CAN'T FIND IT!!!! I'm gonna strangle the person who took it. And I looked in every cabinet and every drawer, like 3 times. I've got a galley kitchen and I went in a big circle for a good half hour.

Turns out it was still in the sink, under a bowl. I'm getting all uptight cuz I can't find my shiney new toy and there it is right in front of me...sorta.

Lame. But I'm all better now!

I knew someone would take the 'shiney new toy' reference and run with it!
