Losing Things

I know I lose things.  
I can’t explain it. 

How do you explain the loan sock in the dryer?

There are plastic containers without lids, yet there are 56 extra lids in the cabinet that don’t have a mate? 

Why are there more salad forks than dinner forks?

There is an empty egg carton and milk jug in the refrigerator.

I bought a new ballpoint pen for $4.00.  It wouldn’t write because there was no ink in the cartridge.

One day, things disappear then 2 years later, they show up.  In the mean time, I buy a new one- good thing I like to shop.



Some things are just more inconveniently missing.

Like toothpaste, deodorant and toilet paper.





Scott and I went to Petsmart to buy pet food.  We saw some other items the pets needed, like Halloween costumes, new leashes, some mice and furry things to chew up, and the cart was packed.  When we got home, the $14 cat food and the $42 dog food was missing.  Scott had forgotten to put it in the car- it was on the shelf underneath the cart.  Instead of driving 28 miles back to the store, some dog and cat owners were very happy that night.

If gremlins are at work, I wonder what they do with all the things they collect.


If you're missing something tell me, I might have it.  aitken.helen@gmail.com

Have a great day.
