Do you have a black hole in your house? Everybody has a dryer that eats socks. That kind of stuff if normal. When the boys were little their sippy cups would disappear but then we figured out they were throwing them over the side of their beds when they finished drinking of them. We found them when we changed the sheets and had to move the bed.
THAT is not what I am talking about. What I am talking about is a void and space where items disappears to and virtually never reappear!
Our black hole is very discriminating. It likes certain items. Take fingernail clippers for example. We cannot seem to keep a pair of fingernail clippers in our house. They are small, I agree. However, we should be literally tripping over fingernail clippers with the sheer volume I have bought. For the past five years, I have put fingernail clippers into every one of our stockings for Christmas. Five years. Four of us. That is 20 pairs of fingernail clippers. That doesn't count the two dozen pair I have picked up when I have found them on sale! How many pair are in the drawer right now? ZERO
The other item our black hole loves is scissors. Yet again... scissors have made an appearance in our stockings the past two years. (Sounds exciting to open our stockings, doesn't it? Woo hoo! Mom, loving these fingernail clippers and scissors!) The boys each got TWO pairs of scissors this year. Yesterday I needed a pair and neither of them had a clue where they were. These boys each have a desk for school with organizers to keep their stuff in and when they need scissors they go find MINE! So when I need a pair how many are in my drawer? ZERO
There is a new item which has begun to disappear. Tweezers. We've lost four pair so far. This must be the most well groomed black hole ever.
I am starting to think that our black hole has a thing for metal. As long as it doesn't eat my computer, we won't have to fight.
