    Losing it - things that are always disappearing on you, around the house & elsewhere

    Socks are an obvious one, of course. Here are some of my other candidates:

    Ballpoint pens that work
    Lighters (especially if you have multiple smokers of tobacco or cannabis in the family)
    Nail clippers
    Those little curved scissors that old-timers need to trim nose hairs
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    Ohtani will not get a guaranteed $500 million.

    My wife got me a tile to put on my keys. Thing is, I lose my keys way less than I love my phone. One time I lost both the phone and the keys.
    Hal sucks

    Neosporin. Whenever I need it it's never in the spot I last saw it.

    Ok so this is a true story but might be TMI: At the start of my junior year (fall 2019), I was working at a table for a welcome involvement fair for freshman, on the weekend they got to campus. Across from me was a table representing the student health services people. I was talking with them on and off, all night, and they had this big tub of condoms. At the end of the night, they wanted to get rid of them all so badly, and they eventually convinced me somehow to take a giant handful. I put them in this bright green bag that sat in my dorm room the rest of the year. Maybe I used 1 or 2. Anyway, when I came home last March due to COVID, I shoved that bag deep into my closet out of shame, next to an old pair of shoes.


    Now I can't find them, and it's driving me nuts. I don't have a current need for them, but I don't want them to turn up somewhere in my house shortly after I move out.

    Here's my weird one. I have a recurring dream about not being able to find my car. Probably from spending too much time in big parking lots. But in the dreams I can't find the car at all. It's been stolen or vanished into another dimension or something.

    My recurring dream is about being late to something important/exciting

    The discussion of a paper cut could have put Ellsbury on the DL.

    Daniel Johnston - I Had Lost My Mind

    I had lost my mind.
    I lost my head for a while was off my rocker outta line, outta wack.
    See I had this tiny crack in my head
    That slowly split open and my brain snoozed out,
    Lyin' on the sidewalk and I didn't even know it.
    I had lost my mind.

    Why, i was sitting in the basement when I first realized it was gone.
    Got I my car rushed right over to the lost and found.
    I said "pardon me but I seem to have lost my mind."
    She said "Well can you identify it please?"
    I said "Why sure its a cute little bugger
    About yea big a little warped from the rain"
    She said "Well then sir this must be your brain"
    I said "Thank you ma'am I'm always losin' that dang thing."

    I had lost my mind.
