Okay. I bought myself a little planisphere (star wheel) at the Sonoran desert museum a few years ago. I lurved it very much. Then at some point last fall, I lost it. I absolutely could not find it anywhere, and so my despair, I had to leave on Semester at Sea without it.
While on SAS, mountain_child sent me his star wheel, and I was forever grateful.
Then as soon as I got home, I unknowingly lost HIS as well. When he asked me to bring it with me to the lookout, I searched in vain, but to no avail. It was lost, precious, lost.
About a month ago, I found his star wheel. It was shuffled among the books in my nightstand cupboard, so I'd have it readily at hand at night if I needed to go stargazing. I was happy.
But now, I was just cleaning out said nightstand cupboard, and I found...my original star wheel. That's right...I managed to lose two of the exact same object in the exact same place. For MONTHS.
