I lost a special gift
December 23, 2016 3:46pm CST
I spent more than an hour tearing my closet apart looking for it. I'd ordered and received it in November and know where I put it! I found the gift that went with it, a bracelet, but could not find the necklace. After an hour I just sat down and cried. It was for my daughter in law, a beautiful sterling silver octopus necklace that I'd chosen carefully because she loves things like that. I sat down at the kitchen table where I was wrapping, blew my nose, and looked down and there it was. I had looked all over the table before because the two items had been stored together. It had not been there. And yet, there it was! I had cleaned off the table completely and examined everything closely before I put it all back. I have no explanation for it suddenly appearing. Perhaps there are mischievous gnomes or brownies in my house! Now to go back to the closet and get some foil wrapping paper. It had better be there when I get back!!

Brownies are from a fairy tale I knew as a child. They clean your house and eat leftovers but they do it all while you're asleep. If you do anything to anger them you suddenly find things missing or broken. They're cute but can be vengeful.

If there are brownies they are very naughty! The same thing happen with my earrings or car keys. I am so accustom that I just go to the corridor and shout to the empty air, "okay, that's funny. Put it back" and a few days later it appears! If there are beings we accept them and co-habit peacefully! Other people are freaked out but I find it amusing.I am not easily scared.
