In our house, when something goes missing and doesn't turn up in the usual spots, the kids say it's in the "Lost and Gone Forever Hole".
Of course, we've always wondered where such a place exists, and today I found it. Should you lose something at my house, the "Lost and Gone Forever Hole" is in Ellie's bedroom. I knew I had hit paydirt when I found a brush, a book that had gone missing in the middle of me reading it, channel lock pliers, and all of the socks we thought had been eaten by the dryer.
Let me know if I can look for any of your stuff while I'm under her bed later today.
