I Throw Like a Girl

What do you get a man who has everything?

Posted by Carol on February 16, 2009

My husband is a wonderful man. He works hard and he plays hard. He is a loving son, a good friend, devoted father and husband. He is admired by those he works with and liked by everyone who knows him.

Of course, he’s not perfect. He has his flaws, as do we all, but he has one flaw that stands out a little more than the others.  I have known about this flaw since we were dating and I married him anyway.

What is this glaring flaw, you may ask?

He loses things.

In the 22 years we have been married, he has lost 3 wedding rings. Well, in his defense, one was stolen out of a locker at a gym (but still!).

Early in our marriage, he lost his car keys so often, that our neighbors in the apartment across the hall got him one of those car key locator key chains.  All he had to do was clap his hands and his key chain would beep, telling his the location of his long lost keys.

He has lost his cell phone, numerous watches, his Blackberry, his wallet, his laptop (twice!).  Most recently, he left his laptop in the Phoenix airport after going through security. We live far, far away from Phoenix.

However, I believe our problems have been solved by my husband’s very creative administrative assistant.


Last Thursday was Dear Hubby’s birthday, and this is what P, his assistant gave him:

It’s pure genius I say. I think we should get a marketing department on this right away and give the Snuggie a run for its money.

    LOL! Too cute. We must be married to siblings. Mine is bad about losing things too. I can’t count how many pairs of sunglasses he has gone through over the years.

    I’m thinkin’ that creative adninstrative assistant had no idea how many people would be entertained by her creativity. I love it.

    As long as he never loses you, he’s in great shape! Loved the velcro strappy thing!
