Reluctant hide and seek.

Have you ever been forced to play a game of hide and seek you didn’t really want to play?  I spent almost 36 hours searching, searching, searching for my cell phone.  Yes I retraced my steps, yes I recalled exactly the last time I used it, yes I called it thinking it would ring so I could find it.  Nothing.

I searched and searched and searched again.  I went through all of the dirty laundry, all of the clean laundry, the boys rooms (under beds, dressers), our room, the basement, the trash twice.  Of course it was trash night so after searching for 24 hours I was convinced it somehow ended up in the trash which had already been picked up.  It was a total loss.

I had asked Big One and Little One (what we call our kids). I get a ‘haven’t seen it’ from the big one but I get a ‘black phone, yes’ from the little one. Could it be? Will his little 2-year old brain remember where he had stashed it?  I asked where it was!  He walked me all around the house showing me everything but the phone.  After talking with hubs we determined that he had taken the trash out to the street before I had last used my phone so it was definitely somewhere in the house.

It was hiding and I was seeking. It’s a small, black non-smart flip phone (are we the only ones with those?!?) therefore fairly easy to misplace or lose. Even in plain sight it can be hard to see if placed on a black surface.  Exhausted, frustrated, irritated and ready to head to the store to buy a new phone I finally found it.

Here it was…can you see it?


Of course not. I didn’t either even after looking in there twice before.  The inside lining of our footstools is black as is my phone.  It was hidden in the bottom right corner completely unnoticeable.  Finally! I took everything out and found it. Back cover off and battery removed which explains the reason it didn’t ring when I tried calling it.  The Little One had definitely stashed it. When he did the back cover came of (it’s always been a bit loose) and the battery had come out therefore no ringing to help me out a little.
