Go figure this!
The other day I looked in the fridge for my jar of apricot preserves. I pulled it out and to my surprise the lid was missing.
"What the heck did you do with the lid?" I asked myself. I began the search for the missing lid. I looked in the discard bag, emptying it out and sorting through the contents. Was it there? No! I searched high and low, every possible place it could be to no avail.
Finally, I said to myself, "Carol, it's only the lid of a jar, forget the hunt. You can afford to buy another one." So I did what I told myself. I let the lidless jar sit on my kitchen counter for several days in which the lid never showed up. So I said to myself again, "Carol, throw the jar in the discard bag and just forget the whole thing."
About two hours later I got my half full jar of peanut butter out of the cupboard. When I opened the jar and looked in you'd never guess in a million years what I saw. Inside the peanut butter jar, lying upside down was the missing jelly lid! Peanut butter and jelly together in the same jar? This was going too far! Elves must have played a trick on me. Why in heaven's name would I do something like that?
