Mystery of the Day

We have a lot of miscellaneous mess around out house, constantly, despite my rather well-intentioned vigilance. I'm happy to consider it a consequence of two small children. But sometimes I wonder, like when I find dry erase marker on the telephone's keypad. Were we trying to dial with the pen, or perhaps just tracing numbers for fun? And why were we using the dry erase markers at the desk, instead of on the dry erase board five feet away? And what exactly were we doing with dry erase markers anyway, since they are usually a parent's permission activity and otherwise tucked away on a (supposedly) unreachable shelf?

The only thing I do know is that someone (I) was obviously not paying enough attention to those aforementioned children.

Now where did the permanent markers get off to?

Or! Or! Maybe you did it yourself, without realizing. "Hmm, my fingers are kind of tired, I guess I'll use the dry-erase markers to dial..." Or maybe B did. Sleep-deprivation does crazy things to people. You never know.
