The Case of the Missing Pajama Pants

To me the most comfortable article of clothing to wear is pajama pants. I think they are awesome. I really like to hang out around my house in pajama pants. One Christmas I asked my mom to make me some pajama pants out of this lavender and silver sparkly material. She did so, and I really enjoyed wearing those comfortable pants.

Sometimes when I go out of town I forget to take all of my personal effects with me when I leave. Earlier this year I went on a trip. A few weeks after returning home from the trip, I began to miss these beautiful pajama pants, even though they were getting worn and the sparkly had all worn off in the wash. I missed them and muttered to myself about always being so careless and not checking hotel rooms when I leave them.

The other week I similarly went on a trip. About a week or so after this trip, I started to miss a different pair of pajama pants that are silky and red. These pants were very precious to me, and I knew it took my sister some time to find the exact pants that I wanted when she gave them to me for my birthday. The weird thing is that I was pretty sure that I had checked the hotel room before I left it, but I couldn't figure out where they had gone if they hadn't been left at the hotel room!

A couple of weeks ago I started to notice that a dresser drawer wasn't shutting as completely as it normally did. I wondered what was up with it but never took the time to figure out what was wrong. Well, the other day I decided to try and take the drawers out of the dresser to see if something was stuck back there. I hoped that I would be able to find my silky red pajama pants. I couldn't manage to get the drawers out, so I just stuck my hands back there and felt around. My hands caught hold of silky fabric. I pulled it out, and it was a bra I had been missing.

I checked the other drawers, even though they were closing just fine. I felt around again. My hand caught hold of fabric, but it did not feel silky. I pulled it out, and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but my lavender and silvery pajama pants that I had been missing for months! I rejoiced and hoped that I would be able to find the red ones, too. I tried again, and I was successful! I was reunited with a missing bra, and two of my beloved pairs of pajama pants. Merry Christmas to me, and merry Christmas to you!

Hooray!! :)

Sometimes I get so frustrated when something is missing, even if I don't have a particular attachment to it, because I KNOW it exists somewhere... and that drives me nuts.
