Default Found long lost socket this weekend

About two years ago I dropped a Craftsman 7mm 1/4" drive into the engine compartment of my 2003 S40 while tightening some hoses. I heard it fall but it never hit the ground. I shook the car but it never came loose. For the next two years I had this small gap in my socket set but how often do you use a 7mm socket? Fast forward to this past weekend and I'm visiting one of the junk yards near my house looking at several of the Volvo's in the yard to see what parts I can get for my cars. When I got to the last car in the row I notice something silver and shiny and there on the trunk lid is a Craftsman 7mm 1/4" drive socket. The exact same socket I had lost. It was like Volvo magic. Some how that car had reunited me with my long lost socket.

I would thumbs up that comment if I could. Is that a real life "you get out of something what you put in it"?
