Step One: begin to freak out and frantically search through your room.
Step Two: Search the rest of the house, only to find other rosaries in similar cases, or the case of the rosary, but no rosary.
Step Three: Find random medals, prayer cards, and holy imagery in the drawers of your little sister’s room, and stop to be happy for them.
Step Four: go back to the first room you checked because man, I guess that thorough checking just wasn’t enough.
Step Five: Begin fervently asking St. Anthony to help you find the rosary. And maybe Mary as well. And the rest of the Saints, you know, because if they’re all helping, it could go a lot faster.
Step Six: resolve to pretend you’re not looking in case it pops up.
Step Seven: look on top of the fridge, in the laundry room, and everywhere else it couldn’t possibly be.
Step Eight: Don’t find the rosary, and get real sad.
Step Nine: Find the rosary on your dresser the next day.
