I read on someone else's blog. I replied with a defiant "NO!"
Then today while I was off to dinner with gf and flatmate. My flatmate exclaimed..."isn't this yours?" picking up a dainty bookmark off the ground.
Unbeknown to her...I had lost that bookmark not 1 day ago.... ZOMG...Like totally FATE.
However, I think it was through a series of luck and not so scientific explanation, I will break down the process.
* Yesterday was a very calm day. That means no wind....yes it is possible in Wellington.
* It was a Sunday, so trash pickers are probably not working.
* I lost it outside a non-child friendly cafe.
* The surrounding area to this cafe is also not child friendly and perhaps people around this area are not in to petty things.
Therefore with no wind, no people after petty things, no children and no trash pickers. It is only sensible to assume that the bookmark would not be more than 20 feet from where it was lost!
It is a bit scratched now (sorry Max and Ruby! I'll take better care of it this time I promise!) but I didn't hesitate to plonk it into my book.
