but someone else did!
Remember my lost pin?
It’s not lost any more!
I could not have expected the magic of the show of the community. Someone this time put a post on the community listserve saying that they found a flowered pin in the vicinity of my house. Well, they didn’t say my house, but I knew that’s what they meant. And I’m pretty sure that marriage is safe, as much as I can be sure, so I’m not worried about my old definition of magic. I have a new experience of something MAGICAL!
Except, of course, that I feel like the grandmother in that silly joke about the child getting washed away in the surf and she rages to G-d when he returns on the next wave,
“But he had a hat!”
since they found it over 2 weeks ago, but then it wouldn’t have felt so magical.
