Twilight Zone, Anyone?

I was talking to my mom today and she mentioned that she had been at her health club last week and was reading an article in an Oprah magazine that she found on a coffee table there.  She told me that she hadn't finished the article and was going to take the magazine home, finish the article, and return the magazine to the health club.  But she forgot to take it home.  So today she was relieved to find the magazine still there.  Imagine her surprise when she picked it up, looked at the address label, and found that it was addressed to me!!!!  (Insert Twilight Zone music here).
Yes, very spooky.  I haven't been in Chicago since the middle of August--but I was there most of the summer, and I had my mail forwarded there using a forwarding service provided by the Post Office--gotta have my mags! And my bills. :(  My mom said she must have brought some of my magazines down there and given them to the ladies who work at the health club and somehow this one found its way back to her!!  
And to think she didn't rip off the address label before she brought the magazine down there--shocking.  After all, who do you think taught me to do that?

Isn't twitter more appropriate for this?

"Mom found my magazine at health club 6 months after I left chicago"

Sometimes I tweet, sometimes I blog.

Hey, thanks for the eyelash info. My husband had assured me that they would grow back, but it is nice to hear it from someone else.
