It has become a Christmas tradition. We finish our gift exchange, I look around, take inventory and realize something is missing.
The crowd, always helpful, not to mention easily amused, offers suggestions:
“Check the linen closet behind the towels. You hid body wash there once.”
“How about beside your dresser? You always think nobody can see large boxes because there’s a surge suppressor in front of them.”
“Did you look in the utensil drawer? Remember the time — “
Personally, I think it’s nice to run across little treasures during the course of the year. It’s a way of keeping Christmas in your heart, not to mention your closet shelf, in the attic and the garage, all year long.
