Stress, and the Non-Missing Missing Puzzle Piece
I was preparing to throw out the above puzzle as part of cleaning off the round table, which tends to be a catchall for whatever the kids pick up off the chairs or kitchen table or floor but don't want to put away. The cats perch there too. I had finished the puzzle except for one missing piece, months ago. Our policy is to throw out thrift store puzzles if they have missing pieces, but I left the puzzle up because I figured, the cats and kids have been messing with this table plenty, maybe it will show up. That was back in March. Well, I can't find where the missing puzzle piece was, because someone had found it and put it in. That so rarely happens, I quizzed the kids about it. "Did one of you find the puzzle piece that was missing for this puzzle?" The closest I got was an "I might have, it's been a long time," from Secundus. Good news, I guess!
