It Must Be Elves

What other answer could there be to things suddenly going missing, things that I just had a moment ago? At nine I was sitting at my table; the movie that needed to go back was sitting next to me. I had to do a few other errands. I believe I picked up the movie, my cell phone, grabbed my purse, put on my coat. Drove the video store, lifted up the purse to grab the movie…it wasn’t there. I looked around the car but could find it. I shook my head in great frustration, shrugged, and decided I must have left it on the table in the rush to get out the door.

Now I am home again and the movie IS NOT on the table where I last saw it. I’ve retraced my steps –no movie. I’ve looked in the car again –no movie. In the places the cats like to hide my things –no movie. I have no idea where it could be it must be tiny elves moving things when I am not looking. Do you think the rental place will accept that as an excuse?

You're right, it wasn't the little people...I found the movie on the third search with the help of a flashlight. I felt like I was on CSI or something.
