10 minutes later I remembered.
When I went back it was gone. You can imagine how my heart stopped. My phone, wallet, lip balm, and house keys were in there - all the important stuff! Then I remembered that Joel had sat with us for a few minutes and thought he might have picked it up for me when we left the seats. He does that sometimes - to help me out.
Only I couldn't see him in the whole store now. He's pretty tall so he stands out above the BBQ's and he wasn't there and couldn't call him because my phone was in my bag which was missing....
I headed to the front doors to see if he was standing outside waiting for me and as I walked past the front counter I heard "Rachel Cramer! Is there a Rachel Cramer here?"
"YESSSS!!! MEEEE!! I'm her! I'm Rachel!"
A lady had picked it up and handed it in. Thank you! A thousand times, thank you.
The whole thing lasted about 5 minutes at the most but reminded me again to try and keep my head screwed on right. On Tuesday it was my phone. Today my whole bag and in a less safe place too. What next???
