glad to see this thread. I have one that I was not ever able to explain, also.
I moved into a home that had enclosed the outter patio area and made it into a room. It's about 15X15. In one corner I placed a large corner computer
desk and I still have it now. It's large and hard to move so I don't move it. The floor which was the outdoor concrete patio pad was covered with
brown indoor/outdoor carpet.
I bought a 3 pack of flash drives years ago and it was the kind that had 3 different colored tops for the ends so if you pulled it off and moved it to
the other end (like a marker) and placed in your usb port, the end would be light up with that color - blue, green, yellow.
Okay, so I take one out and am using it for a while and one day I was gonna use it and pulled the yellow top off and fumbled it and dropped it. I hit
the top of the desktop computer (in the floor) and bounced behind it. I heard it hit the side of my big corner desk and then hit the wall behind it. I
had the lights off except for my computer screen and I was ready for bed so I just got up and went to bed.
The next day, I glanced behind to where it would have landed and saw nothing. I looked a little harder. Nothing. I then got on my hands and knees and
looked all around. I still saw nothing but assumed it was right there somehow under all the cables (computer, printer, etc.) I looked hard and never
found it. A few days later I was irritated that I didn't find it and set out to find it again. I moved cords around and looked everywhere. It was
just not there. I did this from time to time and never found it.
Fast forward to 2 years later. I decided to do a remodel of my enclosed room into a better office. I bought a floating hardwood floor system because
of the concrete patio pad underneath. As I was getting prepped for the installation, I laughed and smiled to myself thinking I'm gonna find where
that little bitchcap was hiding. I tore the big corner desk apart and took it out. I removed all cables and cleaned them from dust and moved them to
another room. The corner was now empty and no cap. I then figured somehow it got underneath the carpet and I was taking it up anyway. I pulled up the
indoor/outdoor carpet and threw it away. The room was now a bare ass room with only concrete. The dang little cap NEVER showed up which bothered me
all the time.
Fast forward 1 year later. I walked into my bedroom and the little cap was sitting on my dresser! @.@
I never was able to explain it. I live alone, no pets and I've I had not had anyone over for years. It was just unexplainable.
2nd instance was this week.
I'm chalking this one up to just being one of those things that is there that you can't see for whatever reason.
I baked a cake for a work function and bought an extra mix in case I screwed it up. Intuition was right, I screwed up the first, lol. I kept it and
ate it myself
The next day I decided to make the other a different way. I had washed the mixer blades and laid them on a towel to dry with a few
other utensils and I left the hand mixer out because I was gonna make the 2nd cake. I picked up the mixer and plugged it in and looked for the 2
blades but I didn't see them.
I opened the drawer I keep them in knowing they were not there because I never put them away. They were not there, of course. I looked at the few
utensils again and didn't see them although I knew for a fact they were right in front of me but I just couldn't see them. I then opened another
drawer that I never put them in and the whole time I'm thinking they are not there because I never put them away. They were not there. I was so
infuriated and looked once more on my towel with the utensils and still didn't see them so I put my hand on the forks, spoons,etc. and slowly ran my
hand over the few items and as I did I saw one of the beater blades and was dumbfounded. I picked it up and put it in the hand mixer. I looked down
and the other is just laying there in plain sight. I just can't explain it because it was like I could see them in my mind but they were not there
and then they were.
