The Missing Blackberry

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.

He's very glad too, although he is not sure he would have gotten it back if he hadn't mentioned REWARD.

np re the ixnay on the ogblay.....

Barb said...

Geez.. now I feel all guilty. So I want to point out that Mike can do anything and fix anything.. including *me* when I was a mess. He just doesn't have much of a creative side. I cringed mentally when he said he was going to start a blog. When I made a site at Tripod many years ago, he tried it then too. Ah well.. Dec. he'll be back to work and tired when he comes home again =)

missdaday - thx for visiting. I want one too, but boy are they pricey!

barb - not to worry....I am not into hardward stuff, but maybe My Sweetie would enjoy his blog. Let's test it out and see. Maybe it's a guy thing.

I see youre also an avid reader. We've got the same taste on book selections. Yay!! Its a great idea to enlist all the books youve read or pending. Now, its my turn to ask, would you mind that I post the ones ive read? hehe.

masgblog said...

nikitajones - he certainly is all of that!

missdaday - I am a wanna be avid reader, with very high hopes of getting through that list (and that's just 2006!). I looked at the Kite Runner from your site. and it sounds interesting.

Thank God the blackberry came back home. Hoorayy for honest Cab Drivers!!!

Now if it were a cat or dog coming back home would depend on how well behaved they were.....

masgblog said...

calabar gal - yes, honesty does pay sometimes (pardon the pun). And hee hee re the returning good behaviour pets only. Thx for stopping by. I am a big Canadian and American Idol fan (that's all that we get here), so I appreciate that video clip. Thx for the good belly laughs.
