- Put two futon covers in wash
- Hang them both to dry in backyard
- Go out for evening
- Come home late and go to bed
- Wake up in the morning
- See only one futon cover hanging*
- Look all over backyard
- Ask neighbor if it's in their yard
- Denial over - someone swiped it
- About 5pm see something inside back gate
- Futon cover has been returned
* the cover that was taken was the one further out on the line and was very high up and would've taken mucho effort to get off the line and we found a few clothespegs on the ground with one clothespeg still on the line.
- The thief couldn't look themselves in the mirror and returned it (doubtful)
- The thief was a child and their parents made them return it (doubtful)
- The thief realized that the futon cover didn't fit what the thief wanted it to fit and figured they'd return it (likely)
Can you think of any other explanations?

Biscotti and I went to Whistler from July 13-15 for our first anniversary. While there, we did the Rainbow Lake hike which neither of us had done before. There was a lot more snow than we were expecting, and Rainbow Lake was almost entirely covered, but hey, it was a good time nonetheless. Some very nice waterfalls while en route. See pics from the hike here.
Also while in Whistler we went to Mongolie Grill, which shouldn't really surprise anyone. What will surprise you, as it did us, is that our respective bowls of chow weighed the exact same! Crazy eh? Well, we thought it was cool. And so did the guy who weighed the bowls. So you should too.
Many times recently, I read in papers and magazines the word majority. I heard many people say it too. And every single time I read and heard it, it was preceded by another word: vast. Is every majority vast? No, but you wouldn't know it these days.. It seems the vast majority of people, especially the collective media folk, need to learn that they can use the latter word without using the former word.
I've been checking in on this site Mondays fortnightly as author Yann Martel continues to send Prime Minister Stephen Harper books. Martel has received a response from the first book sent, albeit from Susan I. Ross, Assistant to the PM. The latest book, la huitieme (sorry, no accent graves, or agus), is a book of very short poems. Check out this poem, known as the world's shortest:
