    ...where I have put my scalpel? I suddenly find myself with a couple of hours to kill, though I'd cut some card, but my prime tool has gone walk-about. Anyone seen it?

    Onset of Something Vague...,

    Tim,

    You placed it in a safe and trusted place. A place where you knew you'd remember that you put it there. A place so obvious that even the most casual observer would know that it is there. A place so well placed that even a witless fool would know it's there...,

    Now for a word from our sponsors, "Witwhiles Witless Poof Powder"...,

    OK, tried all those, no luck so far! It is obviously hiding from me. I think I'm going to have to do something else, lull it it into a false sense of security and catch it unawares. A bit like the, um, oh don't tell me, WORDS, that do the same thing in my head sometimes.

    I can't remember what I wanted it for now, anyway.

    Ho hum.

    Tim, maybe your wife has it so you can't do any modeling. Only "honey-do's"

    I'll ask. I'll have to shout because she is down stairs doing the ironing.

    'HILLY, have you seen my scalpel?!'
    'No.'
    'I can't find it.'
    'It'll be where you had it last....'
    'Thank you, Hilly....'


    No, she hasn't seen it either.

    Tim P (wunwinglow)

    PS Perhaps I should buy a new one.

    A Word From Our Sponsor

    Time for a Witwhiles Break don't you think. A couple of Witwhiles Patented Instant Witless Poof Powder tablets fizzing away in a cup of water is what's needed at times like these. The refreshing lemon scented taste and effervescence reminds you of the last place you placed something that you've been racking your brain to remember. In just a few seconds the Witwhiles Patented formula takes hold and whamo! You're a regular Einstein of lost items. Witwhiles Patented Instant Witless Poof Powder Tablets are available at all better grocery and pharmacy outlets.

    Witwhiles not responsible for any inadvertent side effects. Failure to remember your name, your wife's or children's name or where you live has been experienced in clinical trials. Some have experienced a complete state of catatonia lasting several hours before remembering anything at all. If any of these symptoms occur while taking Witwhiles Patented Instant Witless Poof Powder Tablets contact emergency medical help immediately. Witwhiles reserves the right to deny ever making this statement.

    Tim,

    You got it out for an unrelated task that required a sharp blade. It was left it in the general area of the first floor. Somewhere near or in the kitchen...,

    Your looking for it, so you won't find it. Try looking for a purple honk, then you'll find your scalpel.

    I had a mechanical pencil that i could never find, even if i was looking at it. I found that by wrapping a piece of white tape around it, it broke up the colour so that my eyes would recognise it. wierd.

    It'll either have slipped under your computer or be in that pile of papers....

    Thanks guys, all good suggestions. I now have a pristine purple honk, which I found under a roll of white tape, neither of which I realised I had! Excellent!

    Still no scalpel though. However, I am about to take the top off my printer, as daughter No. 1 mentioned she saw daughter No. 2 using it to try and clear a paper jam.... The plot thickens.

    So I might be buying a new printer as well as a new scalpel.

    This might turn out rather well!!
