Amateur mistake. I left my purse to save my table at the cafe, while I made a quick trip to the bathroom. What is it about coffee? It just goes right through me! When I came back, my purse was gone AND my table was already taken!
Congrats, me! I now know what to do when I have my purse stolen.
1. Visit the po-po. The police are here to help—just like at all those house parties of my youth. But actually.
(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))
4. Replace all other items. I waited a bit, in case the po-po found the culprit. No such luck… But, I now have an extra fierce Driver’s License photo. Oh, hey, bouncer!
I will NEVER let my purse out of my sight ever again.
But, if lightning strikes twice, I created a list of everything in my wallet and noted the corresponding phone numbers and password hints.
