JERUSALEM (Aug. 4) – Israeli airport police say a couple going on a European vacation remembered to bring their duty-free shopping and their 18 suitcases, but forgot their 3-year-old daughter at the airport.

I dropped my cell phone headset on the ground outside a coffeehouse this morning, and didn’t realize it was missing until I got ready to drive away. Fortunately, someone found it, and the baristas were keeping it safe for me. Thanks folks!

I can honestly say I’ve never forgotten a member of my family. So no, this silly analogy notwithstanding, I can’t relate.
