I just called The Skimmer, who is out of town.
"I can't find my jingle bells! Do you have any idea where they are?"
"Did you look in the basement?"
"Did you look in the closets up in my office?"
"I'm looking there now, I don't see them!" I said, as I reached up to the top shelf at the exact moment Lego, our cat, jumped up inside the closet and boxes began to fall on my head at the same time I was desperately trying to bat a spider out of my face.
"Hmmm, don't know. Just keep looking."
"Great idea! Thanks!"
