A few days ago as I was getting ready to go out for the morning I quickly slipped a protein bar into my purse. I take one with me when I go out so I’ll have a bit of nourishment handy if I need something between meals. I went about the business of getting ready to go, doing little things around the house and taking care of some business. Shortly before I left the house I realized I needed to eat something so I decided to get the protein bar. Reaching into the side pocket of my purse where I had put the protein bar – or where thought I had put it - I found it wasn’t there! Was I having a senior moment again? I turned my purse around and tried the side pocket on the other side of my purse. No, not there! Now what was going on? Why couldn't I find it? How could I have missed it? As I rummaged through all the pockets inside and outside of my purse – and finding nothing – I decided to do something drastic. I emptied the contents of my entire purse in search of the allusive protein bar. Nothing! How could that be? I was sure I had put it in my purse. I sat and thought for a minute or two before a sudden realization dawned on me. The protein bar was gone – and so was someone who had, up until a few minutes ago, been sleeping in the living room. Now, I was onto something! I was sure the mystery would soon be solved.
A short walk down the hall to my bedroom was all it took to find what had happened to my protein bar. I stood at the door into our room and called the suspected culprit’s name. Slowly, ever so slowly, a tiny bit of a black nose poked out from under our bed. As I kept calling, the thief crouched close to the ground and, with eyes cast downward, eventually completely emerged from under the bed. Aha! Caught! Sure enough. With the alleged thief nearby, I lay on the floor and looked under the bed. Can you imagine what I saw? Yes – you’re right! You guessed it.
There - under my bed - was the wrapper and the missing protein bar. Partially eaten. Thoroughly enjoyed, I’m sure. Now tell me, who would have thought someone this cute could do such a dastardly deed? How cute this sweet little face be the face of a thief?
