This is a true story.
Saturday morning at 8:27 am, upon my return from the farmers market, I proceeded to make a pot of coffee. It brewed. I got out a cup. I reached for the lid to the carafe. It was not to be found. I looked in every cabinet and every drawer in the kitchen. Twice. I stuck my hand down the garbage disposal knowing full well it could not go down there unless someone pushed it. I looked in the refrigerator, the freezer, the laundry basket, the washing machine, the refrigerator in the basement, on the table, under the table, in the dishwasher. Alas it was not to be found. When Chris got up he looked as well. His conclusion? I had thrown it away accidentally. While on a frenzy of cleaning. He ordered a new one at 1:50pm.
At 2:42 pm I took out a skillet to wilt the rainbow chard I bought at the farmers market. I reached for the knob to turn on the stove.
There among the knobs was the lid. The moral of this true story is:
1. Hiding in plain sight is the best. #2. If you want to find something, just order a new one and the old one will immediately materialize.
The End. Please tell me that this exact thing has happened to you.
