One morning last week, I had my earbuds in and was listening to podcasts while making the beds and getting the house ready for the day.
Knowing that I had a coaching session with a client later that morning I realized that I would need my earbuds for the call. So I started looking for them. I looked everywhere. I thought about the last time I was wearing them. Maybe I left them downstairs while I was painting the walls.
So, when Del came upstairs, I touched the earbuds to pause the podcast, and asked him “Have you seen my ear buds?”
Interpreting his confused look to mean he didn’t know which ones I meant – although I only have one pair – I said, “You know, the ones with the yellow ….” and as I said yellow I brushed past my face and touched the yellow cord hanging down from my earbuds, and realized what had happened.
We both laughed hard for the next five minutes.
Has this every happened to you?
