One Saturday night my boss and her family came to our house to play cards.
As we were departing later that evening, I realized that she had unintentionally forgotten her purse tucked away in a corner near the dining room hutch.
I was about to call her house, intending to leave a message on the answering machine, when my son reminded me that they had a cell phone.
As I dialed the number, I marveled at the technology that would alert them before they had driven all the way home.
A few seconds later the purse began to ring.
