"Milk and Cereal"

(by Green Envy) Green Envy - You Should Know - Milk & Cereal




I don't believe I've told a tale of a MISplacement yet! Now, in all honesty, this happens every day. I can't even remember all of the times that I put something in the wrong place, & I won't bore you with every story I can remember! I plan to only share the most odd/surprising misplacements with y'all! I'm not sure if I've mentioned that I'm a very routine person. I think that's why these misplacements get to me so much! "A place for everything and everything in its place" is a standard I claim to live by. Yet, over the past few years, I have begun losing things. Regularly...

After preparing my breakfast one morning, I went to put the cereal box away only to find that the bag of cereal wasn't in it. It wasn't on the counter where I had poured it. I hadn't accidentally put it on the shelf without the box. I had already put the milk back in the refrigerator, but my missing cereal was not there, either. I asked the kids if they saw what I did with it, and they didn't have a clue. I checked the trash can, because I've been known to throw an item away instead of putting it back in its place...Nope, not there either.

I gave up & went back to my morning routine, assuming that I would find the cereal at some point, in some unusual place, when I least expected it. After making the kids' lunches, I started tidying up the kitchen. I put a few clean dishes in the cabinet, a few dirty dishes in the dishwasher, an oven mitt in its drawer...Wait a minute! What's that I see in the pot holder drawer? My bag of cereal! Ta da!

What about you? Have you ever misplaced something, only to find it in a very random place?
