Desperate search

Ever had one of those days when you went looking for something you must have, something you absolutely can’t be without, and promptly discovered you have no idea where it is, let alone if you still have it?

Today is just such a day.

What am I looking for?  My car insurance paperwork, of course.

The registration is up for renewal and I need that information to complete the online process.  When I looked in the car for the legally required documents, however, I came up with nothing.

Surprise the hell out of me!

I have no idea how long I’ve been driving around without it.  I have no idea where it is.  I’ve searched high and low, above and below, and have overturned just about every piece of furniture I own.  And still I have nothing to show for it.

Sure, I have the policy paperwork.  That was filed carefully where it belonged.  But the paperwork that goes with the car, the stuff I have to show to renew the registration, get a loaner or rental, get it inspected, or when I’m pulled over for something?  That has gone the way of the dodo.

I don’t know when and I don’t know how, but I do know I’ve been skirting about the town sans one bit of the legal paperwork I’m required to have in the car at all times.


So I’m turning the house inside out and upside down in hopes I might yet stumble upon this most essential bit of flimsy paper.  Somehow I think I’ll be calling the insurance company tomorrow begging and pleading for another copy to be mailed to me with the utmost hurry. . .
