I closed my laptop and put it in my bag.

I put my scarf on and zipped up my jacket.

I took my wallet out of my pocket to get my train ticket.

I got up off my chair and walked to the door of the DART. It was just pulling in to Pearse Station.

I put my hand down to my pocket and couldn’t feel my wallet. I took a deep breath and went back to my seat. It wasn’t there.

I was beginning to worry slightly. The train came to a halt. I frantically looked under the seat and around the carriage. I knew I didn’t leave it at home, as I used it to pay for my newspaper in the shop in Greystones.

I hopped off the carriage just as the doors were closing. Panicked, I thought I must have left it in the shop.


Then I realised I was holding my wallet in my right hand.

    Nothing like the concept of losing a wallet or phone to get the adrenaline going.

    Aha. I was dragged into this post. It builds and builds to a rollicking (understated!) crescendo. And I’m glad you had it. Happens to the best of us!

    @Paddy I’m not an idiot. I’m a genius whose mind is busy with more important things.

    @Chris I actually did forget both my iPod and my glasses today though. Doh!!

    @Musiknewshead Are you human, or are you…spamming? ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Maxi My heart was pounding so hard. Great rush (once I realised my mistake).

    @NaRocRoc Cheers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh thank God. I hate that so much. Especially the adrenaline. It physically hurts sometimes!

    I suppose this is a message to be more aware, mindful, in the moment, etc…

    Ach, I’m wouldnt worry, nuthin like doing something silly to make you have a laugh at yourself. Last week, I was waiting for a bus outside the 4-Courts, saw bus coming, took 2 steps backwards into a lamppost and apologised to it!
    I blame the weather

    And that’s only going to get worse with age Darren.

    One day it’ll be your false teeth.

  13. Darrenon 02 Dec 2008 at 3:53 pm

    @Jo etc., etc., etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @LittleMiss Yip – I’ve done that too.

    @Charmed At least you didn’t walk into the poll and knock yourself out.

    @Lottie I don’t like it here. Where’s the exit?

    @Gray I’m doomed. What age are you?

  14. Gray Wrighton 02 Dec 2008 at 10:27 pm

    Old enough to know you should never ask someone how old they are!

  15. raptureponieson 03 Dec 2008 at 4:57 pm

    Ba ha ha ha!!!!

  16. Darrenon 04 Dec 2008 at 9:58 am

    @Gray Wow! You’re that old.

    @RP Are you a sheep? Or are you laughing? Or both?
