How In Tarnation...

You're not gonna believe this. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it myself.


I know. How did he DO that? Pilly is a regular David Copperfield! Except that instead of making the Statue of Liberty disappear, Pilly made himself disappear. And reappear!

This afternoon, The Pony and I left school at 3:45. No need to hang around late today, with five hours of parent conferences slated for Thursday. I can catch up on my work between parents. We hopped into T-Hoe lickety-split, because rain was pelting down hard enough to leave an embarrassing puddle of mud on the parking lot pavement, just under the end of T-Hoe's running board.

I put my school keys in the glasses-holder slot. I put my school bag on the passenger seat. The Pony set my purse from the back floor to the passenger seat. I put the keys in the ignition, reached down for my seatbelt buckle, and saw Pilly laying smack dab in the middle of the top tissue resting in front of the cup holders. The top tissue on the stack of about five tissues that I carefully searched on Monday. And again on Monday afternoon. And a third time on Tuesday morning after I got to school.

I mean SEARCHED. I took that whole stack, laid them on the console, and while holding each one separately over the open slot of the console, hung them vertically by my thumb and forefinger, and shook them one by one! ON THREE SEPARATE DAYS!

How can a pill reappear like that? Something is spooky in T-Hoe.

Maybe it is the same mystery person who keeps rearranging your desk at school, or perhaps the paranormal noisemaker hitched a trip from the mansion.

Dang! I had almost forgotten about that desk deal. This one was bold, to make Pilly appear during daylight hours. Granted, it was a dark, rainy day. But still...

Don't be waking up the StayPuft Marshmallow Man.
