My Real Life

So, about a month ago, Monkey Girl’s Nintendo DS Lite disappeared.

We’ve been looking for it ever since.

This week alone, we’ve thrown away 6 bags of broken toys and trash looking for this thing.

We have turned the house (and cars) upside down and inside out in the search.

The reigning theory was that my mother moved it when she was here “straightening up.”

However, Real Man proposed that perhaps Monkey in the Middle probably hid it from his brother, and forgot where he put it.

And now forgets that he even hid it.

This theory was solidified yesterday when I asked him where a different toy was and he pulled it from the couch cushions.

“Did you put that there on purpose?” I asked.

“Yep,” he replied.  “I was afraid Baby Monkey would play with it.”

Hmmm…so, the plot thickened.

However, it was just yesterday that we also realized that the game case that has ALL of the DS games in it is ALSO missing.

So, I’m working on a new theory.

I think we went somewhere we were going to have to be for awhile and we packed the DS and the game case, and now they are together, somewhere, in a bag.

Or, they’ve been thrown away.

Anyway, I’m starting to wonder if perhaps it wasn’t ME who moved it in a bag we took somewhere.

At this point, it doesn’t matter.

I’m obsessing about it.  I can’t be in a room without doing a visual scan, like you’d see in some Sci-Fi movie.

The room becomes a grid in my mind, and instead of ultraviolet light or heat lighting up my night vision, it is a small electronic toy that I am scanning for.

And never find.
