Unabashed Guilt or Just Forgetfulness
Things were always moving around on my desk.
Sometimes I found them. Sometimes I didn’t.
There did seem to be a pattern to the nuisances…
It could have been a prank, but when there were due dates involved- it wasn’t very funny.
Seeing a home prank being set-up on America’s Funniest, I decided that I could do the same thing.
At least there would be proof if I were imagining these things, or if I had a ‘secret admirer’ seeking to cause me stress.
Thursday night, I was ready. Lights… Camera… Action.
Soon, I would know!
But then what?
