Thanks to My Sweetie for this blog post idea.
When I was little, I remember my Mom reciting this little ditty => 'I'm a poor little lamb who has lost her way......bah...bah...bah'. That's an old old song. Well, this is a story about the missing blackberry (no, not the fruit) that lost its way, and then found its way home. This could have also been called 'How to retrieve your missing blackberry'.
My Sweetie has been away all week on business in Las Vegas. Usually when he goes away, we are pretty much out of touch, except by cell or when he can return to the laptop to send emails. This time, he is traveling with his Blackberry, so we can keep in touch all the time, that is, until the Blackberry went missing yesterday. I got a call from My Sweetie that the device was MIA, nowhere to be found, and either it was still at the hotel room, which he was not near at the time, or it was sitting in some cab.
What to do, what to do. Well, nothing to do on my end. Calling it wouldn't do any good. But, My Sweetie, being the intelligent guy that he is, used his boss's Blackberry to send a message to the lost lamb. In the message, he mentioned a number to call and the word 'Reward'.
Well, gosh darn it all, didn't that message get accessed, and My Sweetie received a ringy dingy.
Hallo? Is taxi driver. I have you Blackbeddy. We meet tree o'crock today at hotel?
And so the cabby and My Sweetie met, the cabby got $60 American dollars, and My Sweetie got his Blackbeddy back.
So, if your Blackberry ever goes missing, send it a message to call home (ET phone home).
Now, imagine if you could do this sort of thing if your cat went missing, or your dog, or your kid.
