There's got to be a black hole following LLB around.
The conversation this morning goes like this:
LLB, where is your new red fleece jacket?
The red Lands End marinac jacket. The one I bought you last spring. The one you loved oh so much.
Oh. I remember that one. Um... I dunno.
You are going to need it for tonight.
She disappears for 31 seconds.
I haven't seen it. It's not in my closet.
Oh... where do you think it might be?
Ummm... I dunno. Can you find it?
Who am I? The jacket fairy?? I'll snap my fingers and see what happens.
Snap snap snap...
Fast forward an hour.
I've been through her closet. I found a ton of clothes on the floor. Some she's been looking for...
I've been through her drawers.
I'm still snapping... I'm getting nothing.
I've been through my closet.
I've been through #1's closet - where I found his brand new jacket with the tags still on it balled up in a corner. Do these children have no idea what a hangar might be or how to use one?
I've been through the coat rack.
My fingers are getting raw now. Maybe I need a wand.
I don't have a basement and I don't put clothes in the attic.
Any ideas? Anything, people?
Have any of you seen it??
You know, I didn't pay much for that jacket, but I loved the color on her. It was a true bargain like less than $10... I'm thinkin' it is GONE. UGH!!!
So far this year we are down a jacket, a lunch box, and a protractor...
That black hole better cough some of this stuff back - and it better do it soon - this snapping isn't workin'.
LadyBug, that's how I lose my jackets. I'll wear them in the Spring, the day may warm up and I don't need a jacket anymore. I don't realize I've left it behind. The weather after that day is beautiful and I don't need a coat anymore till Fall. I look for my coat when the weather gets chilly and the coat has disappeared, into a lost & found box somewhere I've been in the spring. It happens to me too often.
We don't have a black hole. Oh, no: we've got the whole Bermuda triangle (we are a family of 3...)
