Once I found my Chibi Tube of Needles in my make-up bag. And the garden pruners in the upstairs bathroom. And my hidden Valentine candy stash from a few years ago is forever lost.
which may explain this:
I have been missing the scissors from my desk at work since before Christmas. I have emailed, accused my co-workers in ministry of thievery, and made myself crazy tearing apart my space, TRYING to find the scissors. (you may recall that an item was missing last year from my desk, and getting it returned involved blackmail and ransom...I wrote about it on Dec.9, 2005)
As it turns out, my Secret Pal got her Christmas gift from me just a few days ago....a fun winter themed package for a Southern California pal.
Well, she gave rave reviews and heartfelt thanks on her blog, as she always does, and then, wrote,
"On a funny aside, SP, if you are looking for your scissors I found them in the shipping box. Umm, they are a little dull, so what exactly were you using them for? I figure they were relegated to only paper cutting or something like that. I felt a little like I was looking at modern art - appreciative but not really seeing how it went with the theme. If I am completely missing the point of the wonderful yellow handled scissors, I apologize in advance. I just thought it was very funny when I realized what might have happened :O)"
Modern Art! I just about peed my pants when I read this! SO, was it just the stress of the holidays or pre-menopausal aging brain cells? ( mean the misplaced scissors, not the peeing my pants part)
I don't know, but I miss my scissors!
