Lost And Found

I don't clean my room out nearly as much as I should. In fact I can go way too long without cleaning up. I'm not mentioning a specific measurement of time because that way you can delude yourselves into thinking it's not as long as it really is. I'm just kidding though. Or am I?

Anyway, I had a bit of a clearout recently and now things look better. More than that, I found something that I thought was completely lost to me: My Nintendo DS. I had scoured all of my room for this. At least all of the places where I keep my games. There are about two or three places where I do that and if it's related to gaming, and not in one of those places, I assume it is lost forever. Where it actually turned up is kinda funny yet sad.
Yes that is a Doctor Who case and Sonic Screwdriver stylus
I don't even remember what I was looking for when I decided to go through my bedside cabinet but there it was. I'm sure I must have passed over it a dozen times when I wasn't looking for it, because I never looked in there for it, and never really realised it was there. I guess I should probably go through my bedside cabinet more.

The downside is I don't really have many games for it. I guess I can fix that now I have a job huh? I'm just kidding of course because I have actual responsibilities. Most of my pay is going to replace the savings I had to use when I took myself off welfare. Thankfully it's not too much.

Have you ever found something you thought was lost for good?

  1. It's always fun to find things you thought you'd lost. Let us know which games you'll be playing. Have a lovely week.

  2. A happy ending!!! Glad you found it. My favorite thing to find is money in my pockets that I had forgotten about!

  3. Oh, the joys of being an adult! "Look, I found my super cool Doctor Who-styled DS! I can buy games for it and play it again! ...Oh, no, wait, I have financial responsibilities. That will have to wait. Instead, I will go shopping for tile and contribute to my 401k."

    Growing up sucks. :(

  5. Back in the day, I had a 6-cassette set of John O'Donohue reading his book "Anam Cara" which I loved. One day the first cassette disappeared. I turned my entire apartment upside down a couple of times looking for it. A few years later I found it when I was packing to move. It had fallen down behind the bookshelf where my stereo sat. How maddening! But at least it showed up again.

  6. I don't really own enough stuff to lose something like that. However, sometimes I may forget I had something and then run into it. Most of what I lose are things like friendships. It's more like people lose me though.
