Sounds like the punch line to a really funny joke, right? Wrong. For real… the dog ate my earplugs. It’s hard to believe that our sweet little princess (pictured below, with grass in her mouth after being caught eating said grass) would do such a thing. So how do I know she ate them, you may be asking yourself? Simple. THEY’RE GONE! *POOF* Just like that.
So the earplugs that I’ve been using for the last 1-2 weeks and keeping on my nightstand, were magically gone one night. Getting ready for bed Saturday night, I reached for my plugs to discover they were gone. “Okay,” I thought, “Maybe they rolled off the stand.” Nope. I checked under the night stand, under the bed, between the wall and the head of the bed. No where to be found. Surely I had misplaced them or something then, right? Nah. Turns out there was something more sinister at work here.
Sunday, the hubs and I went to Home Depot and I picked up some new plugs. A whole pack of them. Took 2 plugs out and placed them on my nightstand. That night, I reached for my plugs before bed and guess what? Mysteriously gone. I checked everywhere. Again. Now, I can definitely admit when I’m losing my marbles but there is clearly only ONE solution. The dog ate my earplugs.
Those missing plugs have yet to surface. Will they ever? Who knows…
