My wallet was lost or stolen last night. My own explanation of what happened is too boring, so here’s a re-enactment starring Halle Berry:
HB: I had to grab a bite to eat before the show, so I went into a dive. One of those wait-at-the-counter-and-take-it-out-of-here places. Like a Chinese food restaurant, only with tacos. But still with Chinese people. I reached into my jacket pocket, handed the card over, took the card back, and put it in the wallet.
Vince Vaughn as a cop: But did you put the wallet back in your pocket?
HB: I don’t know. Probably. Then I left to wait in line for the show around the corner. It was cold, and I wanted a candy bar, so I started to walk to a drug store.
VV: Sweets for a sweet.
HB: (Bashful chuckle). But I turned back when I saw the line moving. So maybe on the way to the drug store I started to get my wallet out. If it went into my pocket…
VV: You could have left the pocket unzipped…
Together: and it could have fallen out!
(make out scene)
In real life I’ll check the trash cans near by.
