An actual conversation

8:35 - Phone rings...

Me (on my way to work): Hey Babe!

D: I know I'm not going crazy here, but is the bedroom remote in your work bag?

Me: Um... I don't think so -- I don't remember touching the remote this morning, what's wrong?

D: I know I'm not crazy. I can't find the remote. I had it. I turned the TV on this morning with it. You sure you don't have it?

Me: Well, I'll check, but I'm pretty sure I don't.

D: OK, call me back if you find it. Love ya

Me: (laughing under my breathe knowing he's dead serious) OK, love ya!

9:06 - Phone rings, again...

Me: Hey Babe, did you find it?

D: NO! I'm going crazy! I'm serious. I've looked through all our cabinets, I cleaned out the fridge, I looked through all the kitchen drawers. I've torn our bed apart. I'm serious, I started from the corner of our room and I've looked through everything we own. It's disappeared into thin air.

Me: (trying not to lose it, because I know he's serious... it's just that I know he stinks at finding things) Well, it has to be somewhere, it doesn't have legs. OK, I'll pull over and really look through my bag.

D: Please do. I know I wrapped up your pizza in the tin foil, it can't be in there, but maybe it's in your lunch bag.

Me: Yup, maybe it's in there, I'll check. (lots of rustling) Nope! Not in here... I'm sorry babe, that's really frustrating for you.

D: Tell me about it! I know I'm 38 y/o, but I'm not old enough to be going senile. I mean, wait, let me check the toilet. I know I would have seen it go into the toilet and I don't think I could have flushed it, it wouldn't go down.

Me: You're right about that, honey. The toilet would definitely not flush.

D: Nope, not in the toilet. I'm serious, I'm not leaving this house today until I find it.

Me: How about the closet?

D: Well, I didn't go in the closet, but then again, I thought I may have wrapped it in tin foil, so why not check, right?

Me: (Now, I'm losing it laughing) That's right, honey.

D: I've only done so much since I got out of bed 30 minutes ago, it can't be far...... (pause, silence... silence...) I FOUND IT! IT WAS UNDER THE DRESSER BEHIND MY GUN! (D, now talking to the dog) Elly! Did you take the control?! Come up here so I can smoosh your muffin face. (lots of kisses cause she's so darn cute) A******, Elly took it! She dragged it under the dresser. I knew I wasn't crazy.

OH HOW FUNNY! I get like that when I can't find the remote control either. The other day I found it in the fridge next to the formula. I definitely need to slow down on my multi tasking... lol

Christin said...

That sounds like something that would happen to us!

Lil' Woman said...

Lol..silly dog! :)

Erin said...

That little Elly Mae is such a cutie!

inkOBSESSIONdesigns said...

The culprit is too cute!

Ms. Salti said...

That is hilarious! She did it because she wants some extra attention from D today. He's obviously spending too much time watching TV and not playing with her!

Adventures in Newlywed said...

So cute! I really thought you were going to say that he had wrapped the remote in foil and put it in the fridge :)

Mrs. J L said...

This would so happen to me. Good thing it wasn't your fault :) Little Elly is just the best, even when she steals things!

Tasha said...

Hilarious that he thought it was in your bag! Your dog is too cute! Those pics are guaranteed to make anyone smile!

That is hilarious! Thank you for sharing :)

Cole said...

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Elly Mae sure is a cutie pie, which instantly gets her forgiven for hijacking the remote. :-)

My two doxies have figured out how to open the freezer (my fridge has one of those lovely tip out bottom freezers) and get their own ice cubes!!

LyndsAU said...

I hate when I lose things! It makes me feel crazy too, but I must say the culprit is pretty cute :)

Sweetbabs said...

Hahaha! In the toilet?! I spit out my drink when I read that!

amanda said...

My childhood doxie opened our fridge, pulled out a ham, and ate half of it--all by herself!

Ashley said...

I was sure he was gonna find it in the toilet! That or in with your pizza!

Too funny!

MckMama said...

Kitty Cat said...

Our dog actually chewed our remote! Luckily yours only hid it!

Jon and Steph said...

Oh my goodness! That would have driven my crazy too, I can't stand to misplace things! And you just can't get angry at that face.... she's precious.

My husband and I want one. He's had three growing up. Are they good doggies?

Kyla said...

Elly is so stinkin' cute!! Our dog Sam will take anything and everything out into the backyard... socks, keys, phone, pants... he's so silly

Wifey said...

He wins for thinking he might have flushed it down the toilet.

Winks & Smiles,

How can anyone stay mad at a face like that? I can't tell you how many times I've lost the remote and teared apart the whole living room trying to locate it and once it actually was in the freezer! It took awhile for it to thaw out. It was cute of you to share that conversation between you and hubby.

Miss E said...

What a cute culprit :) and funny story!
