So, we quickly went back to the mall and retraced my steps. I went around frantically and asked the cashiers and security guards if they have seen my I.C. They all said no. The thought of having to make a police report and going to the gaumen office to get a new I.C. made me dizzy. I started to blame myself for being so careless. Luckily, hubby didn’t grumble or scold me because of my carelessness.
We went back to our car and do a search again before heading home. Can’t find it too. On the way home, I was thinking about Oscar’s mommy who may have lost her passport and I could relate to how she must be feeling. When we almost reached home, I had this funny feeling and looked down at my left leg. I SAW IT. My I.C. was lying next to my leg. Once I picked it up, I began to have goosebumps all over my body. I swear that I looked at that place thoroughly and couldn’t find it earlier. It is so strange that my I.C. appeared suddenly.
What a relief! I will certainly be more careful next time. Could we carry a photocopy of our I.C. instead? Is it illegal to do so?
