I got an email from Ollie at Windward Cottages. The subject line said “left in cottage.” I thought “what could we possibly have left? I thought we did a “last sweep” and I looked through drawers and closet and think Joseph did the same.
Of course I figured Joseph did it.
When I opened up the email, I saw “undergarments” and cringed. I know I took the last shower, so whatever was left was mine. Did I leave my bra or panties or maybe (I hoped) I just left socks. No such luck.
I was too embarrassed to call Ollie myself. I asked Joseph to do it.
When Joseph came home tonight, he had a sheepish look on his face. I cringed again. “Did you talk to Oliie,” I asked. “Yes,” he said, and burst out laughing.
Fortunately, I didn’t leave everything. Unfortunately, it was my sports bra. Now, dear readers, I’m a big girl, so my bra is big to begin with. But my sports bra, with everything structural that holds my everythings in and up, is huge!!!
I just wanted to crawl under the chair and stay there until the red in my face became at least a nice shade of pink.
