Today I found out where all the pink erasers go to die.
Seems like I'm always buying those things because over the years the kids were always losing them. So every year I buy a new one, and then it disappears. Again.
I LOVE those big pink erasers. Don't you? So why do they keep disappearing? I should put my name on them.
I mark my masking tape. I really do. But it doesn't do any good.
I mark it "Mom" in big fat letters. Sometimes I mark "Do not remove" or "Please return."
But what I really want to mark on it is "Touch this and you die."
But WHY do they have to touch my stuff??????? They have their own stuff!
We have other rolls of masking tape but, of course, no one knows where they are. So they come after mine. By they I mean "no one" because no one ever admits to touching it.
So apparently it has legs and walked off. Who knew?
We have other scissors but, of course, no one knows where they are either. So no one comes and steals mine. "No one" also lost my stapler recently and so I had to buy another one.
That new stapler should also be marked "touch this and die."
I might just pull a fast one on "no one" and write "This stapler will self destruct in five seconds if you don't return it," or maybe I'll leave a note that says "Warning: Danger!!!! Use this at your own risk."
I might just hide their stapler, masking tape and scissors. But I'll have to find them first because I'm sure "no one" had them last. I'm telling you it's THEM against ME.
I think the problem is that I mark my stuff "Mom" and then they view it upside down and it becomes "Wow." Or rather, "woW."
Who can resist using something marked "Wow?"
