My boss, Steve, sent me home to retrace my steps and start dealing with the bank, credit card people, etc. I looked like crazy on the way home, but my commute involves 1 major freeway (Interstate 5), and 2 smaller highways, 410 and 16. Not to mention the entire length of River Road. I never saw it. On my way in to work on River Road, someone did flash their lights at me when I passed them.....I swear that I did not cut them off and it was a few seconds after I pulled in front of them that they flashed me. If they were trying to get my attention at that point, then the pack probably fell off as I accelerated up the I-5 ramp. Which means it probably got run over about a million times already.
So I've spent my Thursday at the police department in town, at the bank, at the Department of Licensing to get a new drivers license, and on the phone w/ the credit card companies, ad nauseum.
And the thing that really pisses me off? The loss of the purse which I made myself, the loss of a wallet (it took me forever to find one I liked), my old Grateful Dead patches on the backpack, my "frequent buyer" cards for bead shops I frequent, the loss of a really pretty pillcase. At least my glasses and cell phone were with me.
So at this point in the day, 12:00 noon, there's no sense in going back to work, so I guess I'll just make myself some lunch and watch one of my new Vincent movies to try to cheer me up.
Thanks to Eliza for the picture.
