Mom one, Mess zero
SO. Z was about to head out with some friends to play video games all night (as he does on Thursdays) and he was frantically running around the house searching for a dvd he'd borrowed the month before.

"It's not here!" he wailed. He was certain one of us had moved it.

"Maybe your mom1 borrowed it," I offered.

"It was in my room. And now it's not!"

"Oh," I said. "In that case... did you check to see if it got stuck between your bed and the wall?"

He retrieved the missing dvd with a flourish. "Yeah, well... WHATEVER!" he said, stifling a grin.

"You're welcome, dear."

Mom Magic. Whatever would we do without it?

1. Meaning his biological mom, not myself, his stepmom. Though re-reading it, it would be pretty funny if I HAD meant me, borrowed it, and put it there. (I didn't.)
X. Hm. I wonder what ELSE might be hiding in the Crevice of DOOOOM! ...has anybody seen the cats?

I'm feeling all kinds of: accomplished Mom magicky
What I hear: Albert Hammond - Down By The River

heehee, in a strange parallel, I had a rush job to do this week, which involved reading several very long documents in .pdf format from a CD. Only the copy sent to me was corrupt. I knew that another colleague, in a London office had also been sent a CD, so I phoned to ask if the files could be e-mailed to me. He was out of office, so one of his assistants said that they'd look for it. Two hours later he phoned "I can't find it anywhere". "Have you looked in his computer drive?" I asked. Apparently yes, that's exactly where it was - so even us non-maternal females possess this logical brain for where discs may be hiding...

I'd be intrigued to see what's in the crevice of DOOM!
