Then I found this. It smells of maple (I hate maple). These are pastry wrappers from 7-11. I did stop by a 7-11 the other day. I bought sunflower seeds and a bottle of water. I did not buy pastries. In fact, I haven’t bought a pastry since the last week of school — and that one I ate in school.
So — where did these wrappers come from? Who would break into my home just to throw trash on my kitchen floor? It was a total mystery. I went to get the camera to take photos of the evidence.
On my way back I caught the Queen of Thieves red-pawed. I believe I’ve solved the mystery. Now I know-
… why my car keys are never where I left them.
… why the gas gage never seems to read what I think it should.
… why loose bills not tucked in my wallet simply disappear.
… and why Chrissy suddenly seems heftier.
I am certain that at night after I go to bed my furry little darlings go cruising. On their way home in the wee morning hours they evidently stop at 7-11 for a sweet.
