lost her marbles

Well she's gone and done it again.  Yup, the peep has gone and lost her marbles, for sure.  MOUSES!

Now you might be wondering why my Peep #1 was playing with marbles in the first place and certainly wondering why-oh-why she didn't take better care of 'em, while playing, so as not to lose 'em.  I know I was wondering that, myself.  Yup, first thing I thought, when I caught wind of those missing marbles, was exactly that. It's true!

Actually, that's not true.  Truth is, I didn't even know the peep had marbles to lose. Mason was going on about Peep #1 having lost her marbles and I said to Mason, "The peep has marbles?  Where does she keep 'em?  And how come she doesn't play with them with us?"

Now as this here is a family-friendly blog, I am not allowed to repeat how Mason responded.  MOUSES!

So after watching Mason stomp off in a huff, I set to work finding Peep #1's missing marbles.  I grabbed a couple of knitting needles and some yarn and donned my Miss Marple disguise, figuring that if anyone could find those missing marbles, it would be Miss Marple, for sure.

And I looked just like Miss Marple, too, except for the fact that Miss Marple was a lady and I am a boy.  And, of course, I'm a cat while Miss Marple was a peep.  A peep who often wore hats and I, although a cat, have never worn a hat.  Nope, never have been a cat in a hat kind of cat at all.  But other than that, no one would ever be able to tell us apart.  MOUSES!

An hour or so later, it was discovered that the marbles in question were figurative marbles at best. Figures.  MOUSES!

So after I did a few figure eights on the kitchen floor, just because figure eights seemed like an appropriate thing to do, I set about looking for what the peep had actually lost.  Apparently, it was some stupid ol' piece of paper.

Need I say it?

Of course I do.

MOUSES!

Turned out, Peep #1 had this piece of paper thingy that she really, really needed.  One moment she had it in her hand.  The next moment she had placed it carefully on the desk.  And the next moment?  Well the next moment, it was lost.  MOUSES!

The peep searched high and the peep searched low.  She searched on top of things, beneath stuff and even in between.  By the time she was done searching, the office which I am told we have to share, was looking like it had been hit by a tornado or something with stuff strewn about everywhere.  It was a mess.  The messiest mess I ever did see and to tell you the truth, if the peep couldn't find her paper before, there was no way on earth she was ever gonna find it after making all that mess. Nope, after making that mess, that piece of paper had been really and truly lost for good.  MOUSES!

Eventually the peep gave up her search for the missing paper and went to the post office to get a new one.  I'm telling you, had I known she could have just gotten a new piece of paper at the post office, I would have sent her there in the first place, long before she went and made all that mess.

Of course, at that point, when she was just beginning to make the messiest mess of all messes, I was still searching for the missing marbles.  MOUSES!

Now losing things is not new to my peep.  No sirree.  Peep #1 is a pro when it comes to losing stuff she needs.  Not an hour goes by...

Okay, that might be a tad of an exaggeration.

Not a day goes by when something belonging to the peep doesn't get lost.  Yesterday, it was the paper thingy from the post office.  The day before?  The day before it was something else.  That something else has still yet to be found, too.  MOUSES!

It's like there's a raging epidemic of things going missing at my house and if I'm not careful, I'll start missing stuff, too.

And to be perfectly honest, I'm still not convinced that the peep wasn't missing actual marbles, that were not at all figurative, all along.  Nor am I convinced that Miss Marple wouldn't have been the one peep able to find those missing marples.  I mean, marbles.  I mean...  Awww...  MOUSES!

Once, a very long time ago, I heard Mason say that the peep needed something - although truth be told, at this very moment I cannot remember what that something was - like she needed a hole in her head.  So was my sister Mason suggesting that the peep actually did need a hole in her head for if she were, and the peep managed to get that hole, well then all these figurative and non-figurative marbles alike could have fallen through that hole in the peep's head and lo and behold, it would certainly explain all those marbles that may or may not have gone missing.

It would not, however, explain the missing piece of paper.

Or the other missing thing from the day before.

Or whatever it was that went missing the day before the item that went missing the day before the missing piece of paper.  Or any future missing items, either.

Unless, of course, those future missing items turned out to be marbles.

Hmmm...

MOUSES!

  1. Yes, those peeps can be particular about their paper thingies. Ours is, too. Some peeps buy their cats catfood and litter and toys and stuff with their paper thingies. Ours prefers plastic thingies. But whichever. Terrible to misplace them. MOUSES!

  5. We understand peeps loosing things. The "office" is a mess, the "sewing room" is a mess & the "hobby room" is a mess. We are surprised that some of us cats don't go missing. Our peep has to count noses twice a day to make sure we are all here.

  7. My human loses stuff frequently, mainly because she's a slob and whatever it is gets buried under other stuff. No marbles about it.

    1. And on that list, perhaps one of the things she needed to do was... Pick up a new bag of marbles! MOUSES! purrs

  11. As Grumpy cat says, you may not have lost all your marbles, but there is definitely a hole in the bag- I think that phrase will work on your peep too.

  13. Figurative marbles are not as much fun. On the other hand figurative "ants in your pants" are much better than real ones.

  15. Oh Lordy... can we ever relate. Our human lost a piece of paper the other day and she spend HOURS looking for it. Looking everywhere... even in places she had never been before... like behind the refrigerator. She even looked in the same place, over and over, in case it magically showed up there. She finally did find the darn thing... thank goodness... because without her marbles, she is no fun to be around! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey kitties

    1. Your mum found her paper? Ever lucky. So far, no sign of my peep's paper. I was SURE it would turn up soon as she got a new one at the post office but nothing yet. MOUSES!

  16. Mom is always doing that. She'll have something in her hand, set it down, turn around and it is gone! I don't know how that happens. Seems the humans lose a lot of things!

  17. Seville, peep #1 sounds like the lady. She loses stuff (including her marbles) all the time. We think Miss Marple could've found your peep's marbles and the paper.

    MOUSES!

  19. Sounds like my human is like yours.
    She keeps on losing "important" pieces of paper. In my opinion it's normal. Her desk is a real mess. She needs a secretary. The problem is ... when she works she is an Admin.... I wonder how her boss manages to survive !

  20. Seville, I think this losing marbles thingy is what the peeps call a you for mizzum! At least I think that's what it is!! Anyway beats me why they are always losing things! If they had all four paws down like us, then they'd be much better off!!
