Life can be interesting in our household. Like yesterday my iPhone was missing. Now that is a disaster, right? Losing any cellphone is a problem but an iPhone? Mine has all sorts of personal information on it besides all the neat buttons.

I hunted. Not a sign of it. I hadn't been anywhere so I knew it had to be somewhere in the house. My husband was freaking out. I mean, somehow I think he was thinking that somehow it would get into the wrong hands. BRRRRRR. What a thought.

This went on all day. Finally my daughter-in-law, Wendy, suggested I call it. Of course. Why didn't I think of that? The only thing that worried me a little bit it had been very low in power. iphones without power don't work.

So I called it. It rang. Yay! Wendy said she could hear it and it sounded far away. I hunted upstairs. No luck. I went back downstairs and inlisted the help of Wendy and Theo. Wendy finally located it--in a drawer under a pile of rags.

I have to explain something at this point. I have set my iPhone to remind me when I have to take my medicine. At 10 AM it goes off with a very annoying little melody. It keeps up that disgustingly cheerful melody until you plug in a password and open it up. My son, Glenn, cannot abide that melody. It was Glenn who put my iPhone in the drawer under the pile of rags. He does not know the password. Wendy now has the password but if I know Glenn he will not have access to the password when the annoying little melody starts again so we will be vexed by a missing iPhone again at some point.

This is so funny!

My insulin pump has an annoying ditty it plays when my blood sugar goes too high or low, and two nights last week it went off every hour of the night. It drove my husband nuts!

Of course, my pump is attached to me, so it's a little hard to hide. But one more night of it and I wouldn't put it past Todd to throw both of us out the window!!

sorry, but I had to snicker at this...!

I hope you smacked Glenn.

You did, didn't ya?

I admit, I laughed too. This was funny!

I think the whole thing is hilarious, actually. Glenn has absolutely no patience. I have to admit the little melody is annoying so I didn't smack him. Besides, he's bigger than I am.

I may add an addendum one of these days as there was another similar incident which adds it's own note of silliness.

HW you're story about your insulin pump reader reminds me of another story concerning a friend of ours that involves another annoying sound that is also hilarious.

Tell your husband if he should even think about throwing you and your gadget out in the snow we'll come after him!
