I am constantly in war with my keys and my glasses because although I put them always on the same place, the place apparently changes and I have to search in the whole house to find them.
This time it was not my glasses or the car keys, this time it was a vase ! A big vase half of my leg (not to mesure in cm and inches) in which I had put four bamboo sticks but then had changed with another vase out of transparent glass. With the time the glass became green and the vase looked dirty. Therefore I was looking for the other vase again.
After checking all cupboards, wardrobes, rooms and even under the beds, I finally called Mr. G. for help. Of course before he started his scientific researches he held a long speech about order and putting things away. Then he turned the whole house upside down, even the basement and the garage and asked me if I hadn't given the vase to somebody. Impossible. Finally I gave up and told him that we would find the vase one day and probably in a place we had never thought of.
And that was exactly what happened ! A few days later I was standing with a friend in our entrance, saying good bye when suddenly I exclaimed : the vase ! My friend looked a little startled not understanding what I meant, I pointed on the vase sitting there in the entrance containing sunflowers and all the time we had turned the house upside down had been standing there "under our nose" ! Mr. G. only shaked his had and returned in his office.
