Alpha Man Meets I Love Lucy

So normally in this house I’m the I Love Lucy. I lose things. I lock myself out. I forget things. I get lost.

And Alpha Man finds my stuff, saves me, unforgets everything I forget, and paints lines on trees so I can find my way home.

Until a week ago.

A week ago Alpha Man lost his iPad. Except he insisted it had been stolen. Even though I have him on my Find My Friends app, which showed his dot in this house. So I kept telling him he’d lost his iPad somewhere in the house or the car.

He said I was full of it. And also that the app “was wrong”.

He is, after all, called Alpha Man for a reason, and that reason is largely stubbornness.

ANYWAY, days go by. His dot remains. I make him search the house and the car and the truck. Three times. Nothing. So I finally felt sorry for him because he was missing playing Candy Crush and maybe a little bit driving me crazy and I also searched the house and the car and the truck. No go. I actually started to believe maybe he was right. Maybe the iPad was stolen by aliens who float above our house and play Candy Crush with his iPad…

Then Oldest and The Boy came home for the weekend. And Alpha Man went into the My iPad Was Stolen speech, and while he was right in the middle of it, Oldest Facetime’d his iPad.

And … someone answered. Oldest started screaming “the perp is in the house, the perp is in the house!!!!” while we all stared down at her phone screen, waiting for Facetime to reveal the perp, which turned out to be …

Her boyfriend. He’d gone on a hunt for the iPad and had found it in the vehicle. In like two seconds.

I’m so happy. I’m no longer the only I Love Lucy in the house!!!!! But don’t tell that to Alpha Man. He’s still pretty sure it was stolen and he was somehow set up…

  1. I love it, there is a saying in our house ask Mom I can usually find everything “LOST”. Good to know he is fallible right?

  2. Men, ha…never wrong! Let’s help them ‘save face’ while we continually find their ‘stolen’ stuff.

    P.S. ALL mailboxes in my neighborhood are encased in a brick structure that are exactly alike…so I still count them to make sure I find my house. (it’s been nine years) So don’t feel bad. I guess there’s a little bit of ‘Lucy’ in all of us.

  3. LOLLOLOLOL!!! That definitely needs to be in one of your books!!! Once again, you have provided me with a wonderful laugh to start my day!!! Thanks ever so much!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That was my husband. We had a thing to buzz and one on his keys that would buzzed till he found them. Best thing I bought as he lost them daily.

  5. Thank you for the laugh! Sure, he was wrong, but he didn’t admit it, did he? Such an Alpha Man!

  6. Lol! That story just made my morning ๐Ÿ™‚ We go through that with a missing phone at least monthly, and it’s usually what did I do with his phone!

  7. The best part of all this Ms. Jill…”The perp is in the house, the perp is in the house!”

    I love your Oldest!

  8. I know how he felt. I misplaced my glasses and could not find them. Had to have a new pair made. 3 weeks later I found them. In the eyeglass case! Since I can see without them they are always on my face or with in arms reach. Never use the case which is why I hadn’t looked there.
