    losing things

    yesterday afternoon i made something with my favorite pen. though unimportant in the grand scheme, it was the product of longing and whimsey. eventually dozed off to sleep after midnight with a wider than usual smile on the mortal skin i call my face. once again, all seemed right with the world. after a tall glass of cranberry/pomegrante juice with a splash of diet ginger ale over ice around five this morning, i went looking for this small object of my affection in all the loser places along with a few unusual ones but it was gone. poof, vanished from here to nowhere. since the old laptop's printer took ill and perished inkless in some dumpster a few years ago, there wasn't any way to duplicate the original. so, can't help but begin to wonder if the scenario you've just read about was all some kind of wonderful apparition or stranger than truth kind of dream. [also wonder if anything like this ever happened to you]. well, i'm still on vacation; maybe whatever it was or seemed will be here when i return in early may. stay safe. be well. ~gb

    You don't think that you ate whatever it was, although if you did I think a smile wouldn't have on you face unless you were, in another life, a spy maybe.?

    Maybe you should find your old printer, look inside and take a rorsasch test on what you see? There might be a picture of a car that you made out of your pen?

    I think girls are just the same - at least my daughters were and my granddaughter too.

    There is an app for my phone to start my car, and an app to unlock our house. So it's already here, except for the driving part. Driving our car with our cell phone? Sounds ridiculous but even if we pursue it, we're talking about 10+ years away.

    The driverless car is already on the road, so we're only waiting for the authorities to approve its use.

    The U.S. state of Nevada passed a law on June 29, 2011 permitting the operation of driverless cars in Nevada. Google had been lobbying for driverless car laws.[4][5][6] The Nevada law went into effect on March 1, 2012, and the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles issued the first license for a self-driven car in May 2012.

    "harsh laws on the books were thoughtfully changed to permit operation of driverless pirate canoes
    until the sudden and wicked cold snap begins to thaw the knee cap deep ice along the river limpopo;
    new law goes into effect 13.03.31. though many lost villagers began marching in protest at sunrise."
