Friday night, I met up with a friend for dinner in Adams Morgan. I remained at the cafe for another hour after she left, so that I could do a little reading. When I finished, I packed up my stuff, and headed back to my car. I passed a McDonalds on my way. I do not eat Mickey D's often. In fact, I avoid it at all costs. But I felt a strong compulsion to go inside, and ordered an Oreo McFlurry. As I opened my bag to pull out my wallet, I could not find it. I searched every compartment to no avail. I zipped up my bag, and booked it out the door. I raced back into my dinner spot, and headed straight to my seat. To my great relief, my turquoise green wallet was lying on the ground, undisturbed. I am so grateful for that strange impulse to get something to eat at McDonald's. If I hadn't stopped there, it could have been hours or even days before I realized I was without my wallet. By then, I am pretty sure its contents would no longer be there. Here are some of the other things I am celebrating this week:
