My husband, affectionately known around these parts as “Mr. Kiddoc,” has baffled me for years.
He can make things disappear without a trace. Give him a set of keys or a remote control or a scrap of paper with a phone number on it and– in under a minute– it will be gone. He won’t even need to leave his chair.
Many times I’ve marveled at his ability to lose things. He can be holding his wallet one minute and asking for help finding it the next. And he has a bad leg… it’s not like he can speed in and out of my line of sight.
I’ve often told him the CIA should hire him to make things disappear.
Well, recently it happened again. He was sitting in the family room. I handed him the phone and a refrigerator magnet with the phone number of our local pizza joint so he could order our dinner. I then returned to the kitchen. Mr. Kiddoc never moved from the sofa. I could see the top of his head through our pass through.
And yet, by the time he hung up the phone, the magnet was missing.
We dug deep into the sofa cushions, but no dice. The magnet was gone.
A few hours later, I stumbled across it. About 15 feet away from where he was sitting, on the hearth of our fireplace.
I should add that the magnet is shaped like a slice of pizza and therefore disinclined to roll.
My BFF and I finally put it together. There is only one possible explanation.
My husband can create wormholes.
They are, evidently, quite weak, allowing only the transfer of small objects a few feet in any direction. But perhaps now that he knows, he’ll be able to hone his skills.
We can only hope he will use his powers for good. *snort*
