Every moment counts
So, it was drizzly and I was in the Vitamin Store, and then I started checking the newspaper bins. Then I went to the Westside Market, where the deli guy yells "West-Side Mawket!" as loud as he can. Somewhere in between these every day common moments Puppet Elmo vanished.
Boy, I'm so upset that Puppet Elmo was lost on my watch. I lost focus. We back tracked, following the path from Westside Market to the Vitamin Store. I called the stores managers over, "I'm looking for a puppet Elmo with lots of band-aids on him." And, then it sunk in. Elmo was gone. Bam, all the air left me and I felt hollow and realized every moment counts.
