Yesterday I went to Revere Beach. There was a strong wind from the south and I got sand everywhere.
I peeled off my bathing suit in the tub and there had to be a pound of sand in there. After I showered I went down to clean all the stuff in my bag. For some reason I had my cell phone charger in the bag. It's a two piece deal with the cord and the part that plugs into the wall.
The phone worked until it went dead, but it wouldn't charge. I took off the end for the socket and plugged it into my laptop and got a white light - as opposed to the green or red. So I figured it was the end that was the problem.
I went to sleep without my phone......that never happens.
Then today at lunch I remembered this basket I have of old chargers and parts. I hurried through cleaning up after lunch - the Patriots were playing otherwise my Dad would have done it. He hardly ever lets me clean up, so I had to finish.
I dumped out the basket, sorted through all the cords, tried a few. Then finally I found another socket end.
I will still go to Verizon to get a new proper end. This one is charging, but when it's plugged in I can't use any phone functions.
But for now.....I'm happy.
Now it's back to cleaning my suitcase. I was nice enough to loan some girl my sunscreen when I was in San Antonio. She couldn't get the sprayer to work, so she wrenched open the bottle. I tried to screw it back on properly, but it leaked all over stuff. That was a good reminder of why I don't like to be nice.

I was born and raised in Boston and can not conceive of living anywhere else. I think Brian Lamb of CSpan is the sexiest man on TV. If you want my attention, you have to be aggressive and smart and you have to feed my head.
