Top-Ten Unusual Sightings in Demon Baby's House

So last night, I came across a VERY unusual sight. And I realized . . . this happens a lot when you live with a Demon Baby. So in honor of that . . . a top-ten list (last night's sighting was #2).

1. A snorkel in the bathroom sink.

2. A snorkel in the dishwasher.

3. My diamond ring in the dog's water bowl.

4. Play-do in my shoes.

5. A pillow in the bathtub.

6. My keys in the freezer.

7. My cellphone in a pair of underwear (as a carrying case).

8. A stash of marshmallows in the coffee table drawers in the formal living room.

9. My charm bracelet INSIDE the air-intake vent for the air conditioning unit.

10. A teddy bear INSIDE the CEILING vent in my office (accomplished by stuffing him down the upstairs vent and pushing it all the way with a broom handle).

Snorkels MUST sparkle. Every Demon Baby knows that.

And who doesn't understand hidden marshmallows?

He's a genius.

(my word verification below? beast, lol!)

Before long you will find scrabble tiles that are bread crumbs for the dragon. The question will be, where do they lead?

Amy:
Beast? LOL! Wow . . .

Richmond . . .

Usually all paths lead to his "nest" (which is like his secret hiding place--only it's not so secret).

#10 is impressive!

Melanie:
Indeed. In actuality, it was FULL of stuffed animals. But the bear was the one whose face was pressed up against the vent. LOL!

With all the action that snorkel is seeing, #2 sounds very reasonable.

LOL! I have some of the same difficulties with my wild man and Lego. So far I have found a green space alien in the bottom of my purse (which I whipped out to write with thinking it was a small pen), a piece of lego in my bowl of Lucky Charms, and a dwarf in the dryer (which sounds like a good short story).

You forgot the hose in the exhaust pipe. Oh. Right. You didn't see that.

I'm impressed with the hidden marshmallows. I would have eaten them.

As a longtime reader, you know that creativity is his strong suit.

John:
I agree! It does indeed sparkle! Though now he has stuck a Twizzler in the breathing part. I guess so he can eat underwater.

Katharine:
I avoid looking in my purse for precisely the same reasons.

FF:
Exactly. Not sighted. The dead car is my only proof.
