Cell Phone Ride

Monday night is my girls night out, we meet up, enjoy a simple dinner and chit-chat for a few hours. On my way to meet my friends my cell phone rings and our home phone number pops up on the car Bluetooth, at first I laugh we never use the land line ( yes we still have one). I answer and my husband asks where I am, I’m a bit confused he knows where I’m going and I tell him I just jumped on the interstate. His next words sound a tad desperate, ” I think I left my cell phone, on the bumper of your car (he was grilling and uses the timer on his phone, apparently my bumper seemed like a good place to put his phone) please pull over and see if it’s there”. Sarcastically I say sure, ok, let me pull over after driving 3 miles, over railroad tracks, and on to the interstate to see if the phone is there. I realize he is serious so I change my tone. I decide it’s not safe to pull over on the shoulder, plus I couldn’t find my hazard lights, knowing that there is no possible way his phone survived my drive and hoping he is mistaken about where he left it. I tell him I will pull off at the next exit. There is a shopping center right off the interstate so I pull into the Target parking lot skeptical that the phone will be there. I put the car in park and walk to the back of the car and to my surprise what do I find, his cell phone sitting on the bumper. It hadn’t moved an inch, I was doing the happy dance in a very crowded parking lot. Thank goodness we splurged on the heavy-duty case, which just happens to have two rubber strips on the back which apparently kept it from sliding off.  I’m still a bit shocked it held on that long but I can guarantee all of our phones will have cases from that company.
