Honey, where's the remote?

Honey, where's the remote?

Have you ever had one of those real nice Harmony programmable remote controls? The ones that are expensive, but let you push, say, the “watch movie” button so that your TV, DVD player and surround sound all come on at once?

Have you ever left that remote on the coffee table where it gets mixed up with the newspapers and goes to the recycling bin, only you don’t realize it until after the recycling has been picked up?

Yeah, me neither.

We lost a bottler opener the same way - knocked it off the fridge, into the bag with the recyclables, didn't realize it until ... yeah. But not as expensive as a remote.
