Last night, I decided to wear the hoop earrings C gave me for Christmas to the Grand Ole Opry. More on the Opry tomorrow. This first.

So we had a great dinner and walked to the Opry and saw a great show. I had never been before so I enjoyed it. Jack Black - yes, that Jack Black - was funny and when we left a 11:30, it was snowing hard. Jack Black on the Opry and thick snow in Nashville - already a weird night.

We hurried back to the car, which was about a two block walk, knocked some of the snow off and went back to my apartment. It was in the parking lot that I noticed one of my hoops was missing.

I freaked out to the point of tears. I looked on the ground, in the car, in my pockets. You know how you check the same place two or three times knowing it's not there but hoping it will just magically appear? That was me.

If you know me well then you know why I decided at midnight to conquer snow and crowds in order to find this hoop earring. I sent C on his way and headed toward the parking lot where we'd left the car. I was trying to decide how much time I would devote to this search and rescue when I pulled up to the parking lot. I put the flashers on, jumped out and was heading to the place where we'd parked the car when I saw a lone silver hoop lying on the pavement, waiting for me to come and retrieve it.

Now what are the odds that I would find it? Such a strange night.

  1. I love that you went out at midnight to find that earring. I would have done the same thing.


Oh goody!
