Over at www.lauralippman.com, there’s a follow-up to a post here, about irrational fears. Mine was burglary and, well . . . go read the January letter.
We’re still discovering missing items — the latest is a digital camera with some EXTREMELY precious photos on them. On the plus side, a very nice patrolman came to my door today with all my credit cards, insurance cards, etc., and I was pleased to see that I had a Blue Cross/Blue Shield card that did NOT use my Social Security number.
One card was missing: My Spoons card. This is a point card for my local coffee shop and I have 2,000-plus points on it, which will get you lunch for ten. But the folks at Spoons know about the stolen card — in fact, they’ve already replaced it, with full credit — so I’m not too worried about anyone trying to cash in.
