…looked for something you had lost or misplaced…for a very, very long time…and never found it? And it wasn’t so much that you wanted or had to have the object back, you just wanted to know where it went. Where it was buried?
Yesterday I was digging around my car looking for an item that had fallen between the passenger seat and the console, when I pulled something out the Wild Boar and I have been looking for, for almost six years.
What’s strange is I know I’ve stuck my hand down there so many times to retrieve other things. How did I miss it?
It was the Wild Boar’s favorite pair of prescription glasses. I know, nothing exciting, but you have no idea how extensively we looked for these glasses when they disappeared. The frame and lens were very unique and discontinued by the manufacturer. They could not be replaced, which is why we had spent so much time searching. It was a bummer but really we just wanted to know to where they had vanished.
Anyway, it was so cool to finally know where they had been hanging out.
There is something to be said for closure.
