101 Uses for an Eraser....

...Not really, just one eraser, but I'll get to that in a second. First, I apologize to the blogging community, mostly Paula, for my lack of participation and absence this past month. I had a very wonderful vacation over Christmas with lots of time spent with my family back home, including my two sisters and their spouses who flew in from Texas and Misery, I mean Missouri. Needless to say, I was a bit distracted from Blogging.

A funny thing happened the other day. Like most afternoons, I was working feverishly away, pounding the keys and squinting my eyes at the computer screen.  Fiddling around, I noticed the back to my earring was missing. This happens often, as I am a known fiddler, and I usually find it on the floor. I looked around my desk, but did not feel it. When I leaned forward, I felt a little trickle down my back. Ahh, there you are you little rascal! I cautiously reach my hand around the back of my shirt, but found nothing. Great, I thought, it went down my pants. So, I snuck into the bathroom and began the search and rescue. But, to no avail. I then mentioned the occurrence to a friend at work and she suggested using a piece of an eraser to replace the missing back. What a great idea! I search the file room for an eraser, which was obviously in the bin marked “staples”.  I then had to show off the cleverness that was now my earring back to Paula, who sits in her farm (cubicle) next to mine. She finds the replacement rather comical and we share a good laugh. But then, I feel something poking the bottom of my foot inside of my boot. Could it be?! The darn little run-away, the sneaky little &%$*.  It was there. What a journey, from the back of my ear, down my shirt, into my pants, down the pant leg and inside my boot! I was impressed.

So, in conclusion from this brief and somewhat uninteresting occurence that I have decided to ramble on abut....An eraser makes a great earring back replacement - quite comfortable actually.

...and of course we had to take a picture!
