To Say Nothing of the Dog.

Many errands were to be accomplished today. Sadly, most of them required the use of my visa card.
There were two local stops, and then I planned to drive ALL THE WAY out to shopping civilization, about 30-40 miles away. Traffic was hell, my sunglasses broke so I was susceptible to sun blindness, I figured I'd get lunch out there so I hadn't eaten, etc etc etc.
Got to the first store and waded through surly crowds, stood in line for 15 min, went to pay, and.... WHERE'S MY CARD?!
Not in my wallet, or anywhere else on my person. Meh!
I ended up putting everything back that I couldn't cover with the $13 in my pocket, then drove ALL THE WAY home supremely annoyed. Apparently what happened was that at the local errand I'd done this morning, my card somehow made its way into the bag with the receipt. I dunno how it got in there, but I've been known to experience moments of distraction, so it's not really surprising.
