Alpha Man becomes 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 so wish YOU were the one to find it! This has happened in our house as well. Something is missing then the ‘What did you do with it.” question from my man. Nothing…but that’s never enough. Whatever he’s lost is usually under a newspaper, or in his truck, or somewhere equally easy to find…men.

  2. OMG I love this! But you really need Alpha Man to still be that, one Lucy in a house is enough. i mean seriously, you do not want to go crazier than things are right?

  3. YEA! I’m glad you were right and vindicated. This will give you something to chuckle about for a while. Have you seen Alpha Man since he got his iPad back or has he been into Candy Crush-land?

  4. I lost my mind years ago, do you think oldest’s boyfriend could find it for me? No? Well at least I tried … Oh and I have “The Good Luck Sister” and can’t wait to open that Kindle, but I have to finish the current read first … yes … I do … *keeps glancing at Kindle*

  5. Can you send the expert finder to my house pretty please?! I have a list and I promise pizza and cookies if they will find just *one* of my lost items! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. LOL – thanks for the laugh. We are still searching for my husband’s tablet. Maybe your daughter and her boyfriend could come and find it for us.

  7. I too am aI love Lucy and I love your stories and in so glad Alpha man had his own staring role this time.

  8. Isn’t it a wonderful thing – secretly of course – to know that one is not the only person who may be able to lose something and rationalize that it was stolen by a vicious thief? I have had someone break into my house and at different times steal: a special salt shaker – a pair of shoes – and a grocery list I just put down for a minute.

    My favorite phrase is, ” I have been robbed and the only thing they took was my…(fill in blank)”.

  9. Yay for Oldest & The Boy for doing good for Dad.

    I am so happy for you Jill.

    I’m happy for Alpha Man – I would be lost without my IPad.
