It's our nativity on Sunday, and the children will be singing. I'm looking for the cardboard sheets I use to mount the words of the song (in case they need a prompt). For several years, they were propped up against my bookcase. Obviously that was a really silly place to leave them, so, at some point, in a fit of tidiness, I evidently put them somewhere sensible. Before, I could have laid my hand on them in an instant. Now I have no idea where they are.
The moral: Never, ever tidy.
