Ciabatta al Funghi while Sexy and Oblivious

Would you believe that I have lost not one, but two pagers now, flown from my person while riding the moped? Consequently, I’m not at all mad—proud, in fact (however the Telecommunications desk at the hospital is not so proud, rather, growing weary of my sheepish mug at their office window).
