I did an interview this week with Lighthouse Media. One of the questions that the interviewer asked was if I could share something personal, something funny about Charles. I willingly threw my husband under the bus and, and even though it’s already outed in a conversation in “Hey, God? Yes, Charles.”, I reminded the world about his reputation for losing things – glasses, umbrellas, gloves, anything really.
As I told the interviewer, one of the best examples was when he was shopping for a new pair of glasses and he told the sales clerk that I wouldn’t let him buy expensive frames because I thought he would just lose them and he knew he certainly would not! Later when we went back to pick up the glasses, she handed him his billfold – which he had left behind earlier. I howled, and might have mentioned that day a time or two over the years!
That interview was published yesterday morning. Within an hour of reading it, I walked into my kitchen with checkbook in hand. I then spent two hours looking for that checkbook. It was not in the dishwasher, the refrigerator, the crockpot, or the trash. I’m sure the conversations between Charles and God continue.
