I work at a very expensive private school. I am not paid all that well but I truly love my job and it’s one perk! PRESENTS! I have very generous parents and sweet kind children…umm mostly. At the end of the year I receive many gift certificates, flowers and gifts. This year was no exception. I was particularly fond of a very nice watch I was given. It is missing.
I asked my husband, the dogs and each one of my kids, if they new where it might be. They all said, no they didn’t know where it was except J. He said “Yes, I know where it is. I took it and sold it for drugs” with a totally dead pan expression on his face. I gasped and looked shocked for about 30 seconds and then burst into laughter and so did J. LOL It was delightful in a very warped and weird way. It never really occurred to me that he had taken it for any reason. Things go missing all the time in our house. My newly anointed 8 year old is always moving and losing things. It is very frustrating. I am sure it will show up but I felt a small sense of liberation because I did not think or assume J stole it! Trust must be returning into our relationship…umm kind of.
