Where the hell did it go, and what should I do now?

So here it is, a nice Friday night. Tits and I are invited over to a house that our friend from church is pet sitting for. The owners of the house have a large older home in a very nice part of town, and one of many amenities is a hot tub. This is a very nice house, owned by someone who clearly makes way more money than I do. Very well decorated, very well kept. "A place for everything and everything in it's place."

We got there at around 7:30 or so, chit-chatted for awhile, then retreated to the back deck for beer and smokes. (Okay, so we're not the perfect group of people, that's why we go to church.) Anyway, after the pre-requisite "how-ya-doins" have been exchanged, it's time to get into the hot tub. It was a cool evening, but thankfully not windy. The temperature was a pleasant mid-70's all day. Dark is setting in, and the water, about as perfect as a hot tub can get, felt very, very relaxing. It didn't take long for any of us to feel completely eradicated of our stresses. I can't think of a better way to cap off a work week than to sit in that hot tub on a night this perfect.

After about thirty or forty minutes, the first and second beers are calling my name... "Hey tires, let me out man. You gonna keep us in here all night? Come on, man, it won't be cold for long, just get out, run to the bathroom, do your biz, and you can be back out here and in the hot tub in no time."

So I get out of the hot tub, wearing only my swimming suit, grab one of the towels that had been placed out on the deck, dry myself off, and head into the bathroom on the ground floor. After getting rid of beer 1 and beer 2, I look around to make sure I hadn't gotten a puddle of water on the hardwood floors, or anywhere else that might leave a stain. And suddenly, I realized...

It was gone!

Shit! Where did it go! It was on my finger just ten minutes ago, I know it was. I saw it. I made sure it stayed on, because....

Oh yeah, this is the part where you need to know what "it" was, huh?

Well, for those of you that remember my post titled "The Bogart and the Blue Thumb, you'll remember that about six or seven weeks ago, I bashed up my thunb pretty bad. Well, I've had a bandage holding my thumb nail on for the last four or five days now, and that fucking bandage fell off. I know I had it on in the hot tub not more than a few minutes before I got out. Now, here I am in this nice big house, somebody elses house I might add, and I have a bandage that went AWOL. Son of a bitch. So, I instantly tune my ears into what's going on outside. I'm ready to hear the "EEwwwwuuueeewwww" coming from my wife and our friend, as they are attacked by the bandage, prowling around the hot tub like a shark, ready to infest the unsuspecting prey with germs of the unknown. Then, when I hear a subtle laugh, I realize they haven't found it yet. So then, I weigh my options...

1. Play it off like I didn't know it fell off, and just go back out, like nothing ever happened, and play dumb if someone does find it stuck to their bicep.

2. Go back out and explain that I can't find a bandage that has been holding on a nasty gnarled thumb nail, and kindly ask if they would like to join me in the quest for it.

3. Go back out to the hot tub, and look for it myself, hoping to find it before they do,(without my glasses, yeah right!)

4. Put another bandage on it, (I mean, I'm already in the bathroom, there's got to be a bandage in here, right?) and if someone finds my old one, just pretend it wasn't mine, and say "Not mine. See?" while holding up my freshly taped up thumb.

What would you do? I'll tell you all what I did tomorrow.

i was 15, getting an award in front of the whole school assembly and the elastic on my undies snapped and they fell down around my ankles as i walked across the stage.

i did a quick two step, leaving them there and kept walking towards the podium

meanwhile the buzz had started and by the time i was supposed to be delivering an inspirational speech, the entire group was whispering, giggling

have gone commando ever since

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

Probably either number 1 or 3.

First off, I didn't exactly play by the rules here, since what I did wasn't an option for you guys to choose from. But here's what I did...

I had to put a bandage back on it. Otherwise, I'm sure my thumb nail would have fallen off, and I sure ass hell didn't want someone to find that. So, I looked in the medicine cabinet of the bathroom only to find that they didn't have any band-aids in there. So, I was going to go back out and have my wife help me look for it when I suddenly found it stuck in the towel. It fell off when I was drying myself to go into the house. I then went to the upsatirs bathroom and got a new one.

Since you found the one you lost ... no problem. However, failing to find said bandage ... I would have explained (at least to my partner) the problem and enlisted help in locating the wayward bandage to be disposed of and a new one to replace it. Sounds like you had it under control though.
