I Lost My Sneaker Where Did It Go ?

Updated on May 10, 2012

Where Could It be?

I know I had it earlier and I thought I left it here with the other one

I took them off as soon as I came in the door

I didn't even walk across the kitchen floor

Don't you hate it when something disappears right under your nose

I retrace my steps and have to laugh

I talk to my cat

Did you take it and hide it on me

That is me just trying to be silly

There is a good explanation on where it went

For now I have no left sneaker

What do I do ?

I can grab another pair and find the other one later when it pops up out of the blue

Where is it going to come from ?

Another room perhaps

So I go in the kitchen and walk in the bedroom look on the floor

Like I am going to see my other sneaker , really?

It walked all by itself

I know I will check the backroom maybe it walked all the way through the house

How about in the living room did it want to watch t.v. too

I know I forgot to look in each of the bedrooms maybe it wanted to take a nap

Sneaker,sneaker where are you ?

You had so much fun

Now why don't you come out where ever you are ?

I think I am losing my mind

Things like this happen time to time

But there is always a good explanation

I can't wait to here this

I have looked in every room how about downstairs maybe it took a walk

Why not I have nothing too lose

So I continued to call out Sneaker Sneaker I am coming for you

You have riled my nerves and tested my patience

I have had enough

I don't care if I ever find the other one

I am so aggrivated I am going to throw this one out

What do I care I have another pair

So it a matter of haste and anger I toss the one sneaker in the barrel

I put on my other set of sneakers and out I go

Off to run a few errands

Later my wife comes home and calls my name

She thinks he must of went out

Oh we thought me missed the trashmen but they haven't come yet

I will throw out the little bit of trash in the kitchen barrel and let me clean out the fridge

This yogurt is expired

The celery is all wilted we clearly forgot about it

I think this cucumber is soft cut off the bad and I will eat it for a snack

Outside she goes and puts the trash bag in the barel out in front off the house

Sure enough within seconds the trashmen are there

Nice to see you

Nice to see you too

As she carries the empty barrel back in

Up the stairs she goes

Opening the door and almost going in

Oh I almost forgot I have to get my husbands sneaker

I left it on the railing

I went to go out earlier and there was a hornet buzzing by my head

So I went back in the house and grabbed my husbands sneaker

I waved it around and walked out the door

I swatted at it and stunned it

But where it went I don't know

I locked the door and said I forgot to bring the sneaker in

I will do it later no big deal

My husband has other sneakers and it's not going to go anywhere anyway

So she brings the sneaker in and puts it down on the floor

A little while later the door opens and I come home

Hi honey how are you we both say simultaneously

Good and the other one says not bad

I was looking for my sneakers and I could only find one of them earlier

I have no idea where it went

No I have only seen that one sneaker but I did see the trashmen and I threw out the kitchen trash

Remember we thought we missed them so we said don't bother

I caught them just in a nick of time

Oh no I through one sneaker in the barrel when I couldn't find the other one

Why would you do that ?

I looked all over the house and it was in the kitchen the whole time

I don't know how I could of missed it

You know when you get mad and you look for something it is right under your nose the whole time

Well that will teach you not to get mad

Now you really only have one sneaker

In the barrel the sneaker went

I am hungry how about you ?

Lets go out to the new place down the street

It is called Moms Best Kept Secrets

Sounds good

I still don't know why I didn't see my other sneaker in the kitchen

Somethings we just will never know

We both laugh and away we go

      Daisyflowrs Stan agrees you have to start writing and loves your name.He said he remembered when he was little he use to be outside climbing in the daisys(his favorite) and other flowers.Then one day he wondered in the house and stayed ever since.You are right Stan is alive and well.Thanx for being a friend.

      No worries. It wasn't Stan. Stan knew enough to have "look-a-likes". Stan is the man when it comes to ants. Don't forget that. Other ants jump at the chance to be Stan's fake ant. They know they risk their lives. It's all part of the circle of life, and politics. I never knew bugs have politics, but when you think about it, "Survival of the Fittest" is essentially, politics. Wow, I need to start writing.
