An expensive lesson learned.

I've always known that you learn lessons no matter how old you are.  Yesterday I learned one.  Do NOT leave your bag under your seat at a movie theater. Do NOT.  Reid and I spontaneously decided to go see a movie, (A Most Wanted Man, in case you were wondering),   Those are the things we can do these days,  with Nina being away, just get up and go.  The movie ended, we walked to the car and my bag felt light.  I opened it and sure enough, no wallet.  Dash back to the movie theater, all the while thinking that I've become so careless, why can't I keep things together?  I ran into the theater, up to our row and sure enough, on the floor under my seat, I found my wallet.  Whew!  It took me a few seconds to open it, and that's when I saw that all the money I had in my wallet was gone.  Over $200.  The theater manager told us we were not the first to have this happen to and the police officers who came in explained that it is a very frequent occurrence. We all realized that I was lucky to have my id and my credit cards still in the wallet.

Moral of the story, lessons can be learned at any age and keep your bag on your lap!  In the scheme of things this movie was expensive, but the lesson wasn't really.  And here, I'm passing it on to you for free!  That's what friends are for!

Coming attractions...  coming to a theater near you soon!

Happened to me last year at my yoga studio: cash gone, wallet and id intact. Total bummer. But now I warm everyone at the studio.
