Found: 1 frisbee

Back in November, in a somewhat anal primary-school-parent moment, I put my name and phone number on my brand new ultimate frisbee. I then had the displeasure of watching it drift beautifully into the frisbee-shaped slot of a storm water drain down near the lake after an unfortunate throw.

Yesterday I got a phone call:
This is going to sound weird, but I have your frisbee....

A woman kayaking in the lake came across it floating in the water some two months after I first lost it! I met her and recovered a disc that, apart from being a bit dirty, is still in good nick.

Some of the guys at work have decided they are going to start throwing things in the lake with their phone number on them as a way to meet girls...

Hooray! About five years ago I lost my first generation iPod shuffle. A guy plugged it in, found me listed as an author on an excel spreadsheet I had saved, and then looked me up in the white pages to call me and return it.

I am glad your frisbee found its way back to you. May it have learnt its lesson and now only give you fortunate throws.
