Lost… and Found

I was out and about in the city yesterday, wearing one of my favorite scarves: Pointu Tigre Royal. When I back home, I realized that one of the little orange tassels on one side of the scarf was missing!
It sucks when you lose something that you adore, but it sucks even more when you know that you are not able to buy a substitute. Ahh…. In order to console myself, I went out again and treated myself a cup of caramel macchiato and a huge piece of Frankfurter Kranz. ;-) While I was enjoying the drink and cake, I couldn’t help thinking about the missing tassel. Where and how could I lose it without even noticed?! In the end, it bothers me so badly so that I decided to trace my shopping route back. Coz this is probably my last chance to get it back. If I couldn’t find it, it’s fine. At least I’ve tried thus I have nothing to regret, but what if I had the luck and…?

So I went back to the city and revisited the stores I’ve been to. Just as I am about to give up, there it was! Lying on the ground in a shop where I got some clothes for my baby. Can you imagine how thrilled I was? Well, I know it sounds stupid to be so happy about such a little material thing, but you can understand how I felt, right? ;-)

When I told my hubby about the story later, he joked that our baby is my luck bringer. Since I found the missing part in that baby shop. Well, I hope so too. As my due day is coming closer and closer, all I need is luck! ^_* Thank you for reading such a lengthy post and now please enjoy miss Pointu Tigre Royal in her full glory~~

    You lucky thing! I’ve lost plenty of things which were gone forever. Goodness, the due date is looming closer now. Looking at the outfits you’re wearing, you’re the yummy mummy that I never was. All the best for the labor. I hope everything goes smoothly. Take care!

    I am twins with you on this Pointu and I lost one of my tassels as well during my niece’s wedding. It was quite hilarious, my Brother in law found it and announced to the dance party -” alright, who’s lost their little orange tassel”, much to my embarrassment (and he was the presiding minister of the wedding no less) LOL. I am glad yours and mine was found! Happy pointu wearing the may the Tigre and Dragon bring you much happiness and cheer to your little bundle of joy.

    Is it possible? I also lost one of my tassels but found it immediately!! :) I have decided to close the buttonhole a little to avoid losing it again. We are so fortunate indeed!

    Birkinmary, oh dear, thanks for sharing another happy ending story. :-)

    I am going to do the same for my Pointu, don’t think I’ll have the luck again. lol~~

    Oh Q!!

    I’m so glad that you were able to find the tassel!! Your baby IS lucky – this is also the year of the Dragon!!!

    I had a similar incident right after I got engaged. One of the side diamonds fell out of my ring in the book store where I was studying. I was trying to retrace my steps when I ran into a friend. She gave me a hug to console me, and as she looked down she found the diamond!! It’s always nice when there is a happy ending! :)

    xo, sam
