Lost and not Found...

Sometimes i rush outside my home and wonder... "humm maybe i forgot to turn the oven off."... "Are the lights still on?" or "For how long the cat has not eaten?"...those are "normal" pondering?

There is plenty of things that you might find in a lost and found box...Shoes, cell phones, ipod, wallets, all kinds of bags.....Apparently in Reykjavik in lost and founds bags you find other things..

2 days ago, i unfortunatelly forgot my shoes at the gym. Yesterday evening i went to see the janitors to ask if they had found them. They told me to look in some big boxes...which i did...and next to my shoes then i found the following "item":


Yes this is what you think it is.....An artificial leg ! I know that this has happened several time in the metropolitan in Paris...You get in the wagon and you eventually carried an artificial leg that you forgot behind you when you rush out... But...forgetting such leg in a gym... i think this is extreme....The person must have noticed it somehow...? He or she probably took it off to shower and then forgot it...I can understand this.. But how could he leave without noticing it..

I feel a bit low because of the whole situation of Iceland. I guess i am more and more Icelandic than French and i do care more about my adoptive country than my birth one...Anyway... this made my day....

I'm so sorry about Iceland situation. I hear everyday on the news and I think living the crisis must be a mess in many ways...

Now that is a very unusual thing to forget. I can't imagine!

I'm also sorry for the Iceland situation. There are news stories almost every day. Being there must be a little sad as well as scary.
