Have you ever looked for something in your house/apartment/tent/shack/whatever that you absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt KNOW is within those four exterior walls somewhere
, yet you can't find it to save your life?
I've just spent over an hour searching just about every conceivable spot in this house, looking for this:http://uncommonscents.com/Bucky-Utopia-Neck-Pillow-p/bu0001.htm
I bought one WAY back, when I was stationed in Hawaii, prior to going to Australia in August 1996. It is the best travel pillow EVER. I can't remember when I used it last, but I know I've looked for it before, and I'm certain it made the move with me. I even had an eyeshade that I got in a little complimentary bag (along with socks, toothbrush, and paste) that I got from Qantas when I flew to Sydney tucked inside the outer cover.
Gone. Without a trace.
There's one more spot I can look, but I'm not holding out much hope - it's possible that it's in my seabag, which is full of uniforms that haven't seen the light of day in over 3 years. I guess I'll drag that thing out of my smaller bedroom closet tomorrow and dump it out. At least I know where I can get another pillow if my old one doesn't show up.
