Yesterday, after a search of the house, we finally put the question to Katherine, since she is often very helpful about finding mislaid objects. “Katherine, have you seen Dada’s watch?”
Instead of running off to check her favorite hiding spots, she just gave me a solemn look and said, “Nope. Gone.” Then, when I didn’t seem to get it, she added, “All gone.” I half wondered whether she was going to follow it up with a clap on the shoulder to comfort me, as in, “Sorry, old chap. These things happen.”
So the hunt continues for Sydney’s watch, which is also one of the favorite household toys.
