#100WW — Hide and Seek

C2396F9A-C8FC-4639-A6E9-BBAF9D16C84DJack was at the kitchen table when he heard the sound of breaking glass. Nina, his wife, screamed, “Oh crap. I just dropped the bottle of olive oil into the sink. Can you go into the pantry and get me another bottle?”

“Sure,” Jack said. He got up, walked into the pantry, started looking around, and was struck by the lack of organization. “Where is it? I don’t see it.”

“Sheesh, Jack, open your eyes,” Nina said. “It’s there.”

“Looking for something in here is like playing hide and seek, ” Jack asked.

“No,” Nina said. “It’s seek and ye shall find.”

    I like that. It also reminds me of my kids (years ago) opening the refrigerator door and looking in, just standing there. “Where is it?”

    I responded, “It’s not going to jump out at you.”
