Sometimes bad luck is good luck!

Today when I was in the midst of a cleaning frenzy I was going to take a lunch break and, when I opened my crisper drawer to get some veggies, I noticed there was liquid in the bottom of the fridge -- pinkish colored. Upon further investigation I discovered that a bowl of watermelon had gotten tilted, and the juice had run all over the back of the bottom shelf and down into the bottom under the crispers. I really didn't plan to do THAT job today -- remove everything from the bottom shelf and crisper, clean everything off, clean out the juice and wash off the shelves, put everything back. Oh, yes, and did I mention that after dripping the juice on the floor as I tried to get the messy stuff to the sink, I had to re-mop my kitchen floor, which I had just finished cleaning an hour before?????? So naturally, I was mumbling and grumbling and getting just a wee bit crabby about the whole thing. Then as I removed the last bag of fruit from the crisper drawer to clean it out, I saw something laying on the bottom. It was my pearl pinkie rink that I'd been looking for for 2 weeks (and had sadly given up any hope of ever finding it again!) It must have fallen off my finger as I was digging for an apple or something. And so I'm saying a prayer of thanks to St. Anthony (patron saint of lost items) for messing up my fridge!!!
