Yesterday, the playroom became a crime scene...again. This time it wasn't a murder mystery but rather a disappearance: the case of the missing spectacles. In the time it took to unload the dishwasher, a pair of bubblegum pink glasses vanished.
What we have here, ladies and gentleman, is a good, old-fashioned "Whodunnit". With no witnesses, no alibis, and no confessions, we must turn to the circumstantial evidence...again.
Perp #1: Josie "The Catfish" (aka "J-J-J Jo Jo and the Jets")
What are you talking about? I AM wearing my glasses.
Don't let her calm and collected mannerism fool you. She's a princess in pigtails who has had a love/hate relationship with her glasses for more than a month.
Perp #2: Merryn "The Mimic"
She may only be 17 months-old but this frilly fraud has a rap sheet a mile long of identity theft attempts. She has a penchant for accessories and a documented case of glasses envy.
Or perhaps in the spirit of the great criminal duos of our time...Bonnie & Clyde...Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid...Thelma & Louise (yeah, yeah - go with it) these two corrupt companions conspired with one goal: Make those doggone pink glasses swim with the fishes.
So which one of these sinister sisters snatched the specs?
An APB was issued and we put our best detective (Mom) on the case. The crime scene was scoured over and over again but every lead turned up dry. Just when investigators were about to call off the search, a small glimpse of pink appeared from the most unlikely spot and a crimson co-conspirator was caught red-handed.
An intense interrogation ensued but this accomplice ain't given up the goods. No sir, his lips are sealed (unless you press his hand in which case he sings "Jingle Bells"). The hush money must have been hefty because this allegiant accessory is facing life in the pokey while the suspects remain at large, waiting to strike again. It's only a matter of time...
