The Missing Work Pants

I was vegging in front of the tv, Ian goes in and takes a shower to get ready for work. I pack his lunch during commercials. Shelby has fallen asleep early tonight, so I can kick back and relax a little early tonight.

Two days ago, the breaker in the attic to the dryer and the big ac unit in the house went kablooey. No dryer, no ac. Went to Lowes and got me a new breaker, but in the meantime, I had clothes hanging from every doorway drying. Today, as I was cleaning up, I went to hanging up some of the dry clothes. Some did not make it to the closet, they were layed down in the chair in the hallway.

As I finish up packing his lunch, I hear him asking me if he has any clean work pants. I say yes, I KNOW there was some hanging with your tshirts, they are layed down in that chair in the hallway.

Tonight is the first night my chickens are outside, and I made a comment. "I wonder what the chickens are doing right now tonight out in their house?" I said with a smile.

"Well, I don't know, maybe you better go chekc and see, ANYTHING to keep me from having clean work pants!!!!

"I know they are there, I put them there myself! I even know which doorway they were hanging in and what they were hanging with!"

"WELL, they aren't here!"

"Yes they are, I will show you"

I go through the clothes, no pants. I search the clothes in the closets I hung up, no pants. What the h*ll happened to the pants????

"Don't put on your shoes yet! I will find them, I know they are here. You know I always make sure you have work pants clean, if I had known they were gonna disappear, I would have done laundry sooner!!!"

(He had gotten a pair of pants out of the top of the laundry.)

"Well, I don't know where they went, but there was no need for that smart @ss comment. You make it sound like I don't have my priorities straight, and I know those pants are here, you just have me in such a tizzy I can't find them!" "When I find them you will be wrong!"

"But I still won't have any workpants, since I will already be at work, until tomorrow, when I go in."


I am a good wife and a good mother. No need to go around making me feel guilty, and I do, feel guilty. So I get on the defensive. I am gonna find those dadblasted pants, then he will see I am not CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

I've come up with a theory on missing stuff. People that study such things think there may be as many as 27 different dimensions instead of the 4 that we can see. My theory is: Things move between dimensions and thus are invisible to us.

Example: You know you put a box of screws on the shelf above the workbench. You need some screws to repair a chair because you have guests coming. You go to the shelf to get the box. Not there. You look all over the workshop. No screws. So, you go buy another box of screws. You fix what you need the screws for and put the new box away on the shelf on the workbench. Sitting there in plain sight is the box you tore the workshop apart looking for. It had shifted dimensions just enough that you couldn't see it. For some reason it shifted back when you no longer needed it.

Example: Ever been late for work because you can't find your car keys? Dimension shifting strikes again.

LMAO! That reminds me of the excuse my Mama and Daddy have for missing things, they say the little blue people took it. I have never seen this episode, but I think it was an old Outer Limits. Little blue people would come and take things, like car keys, and later put them back. Weird. :)

I had to go look that up in the acronym finder, then once I saw what it was, I remembered seeing it before. See? I can't even remember what CRAFT is! lol
