Where Is That F@#*!ng Remote Control!???
I came home last night around 10:30pm after having a delicious dinner with a buddy of mine, and in order to wind down before bed, I thought I would watch a little television.
I sat down on the couch and reached forward to the coffee table where I normally place the remote control.
Oh...it wasn't there!
Hmm, where did I place that?
So, I start looking on the couch, on the floor around the couch, and then in between the couch cushions...
What the heck? So, i get up. Walk over to the kitchen area...maybe I placed it on the counter? Nope.
Did I possibly put it in my Work bag, as I was getting it ready for the morning? Nope.
Well, I did take my contacts out. Maybe I took it into the bathroom with me? Nope.
What the F?
I know, I know...I had one of those crazy moments that you only see on TV, where I took something out of the fridge and placed the remote in there, right?
It HAS to be somewhere! I just used it earlier in the evening. Either it grew legs and walked away, or the ghost in my apartment is playing games on me!
I walked back and forth throughout my apartment 4 times, and still nothing. I was getting to the point where I was going to have to start tearing apart my home.
God forbid I actually walk over to the television set and turn it on manually!!!
Hmmm...maybe I should just walk down to Radio Shack and buy a new one?
I was determined to find this darn remote control. I thought, "If I don't show up to work in the morning, it's because I am still searching for it!" Which might actually make me insane...
Frustrated, I decided to just turn on some light music, and fall asleep to that...
I woke up this morning, and was ready for some frozen Aunt Jamima pancakes. :)
I opened the freezer, and BAM! There is the remote, sitting peacefully next to the ice cube trays.
Damn! I checked the fridge, but not the freezer? Oh brother...
I realize now that I must've placed the remote in there when I was getting out the tub of Ben & Jerry's last night, which I stuffed my face with!
Just another random, idiotic moment to add to the growing tally...!
Unfortunately, when I tried turning my TV on, the remote didn't work. I am hoping that it just needs to thaw out.
Otherwise, I will be making that trip to Radio Shack after all!
