An argument for not putting things tidily away in cupboards and drawers.

Son: Have you seen the clamp?
Me: You mean the thing that holds things together?
Son (rolls his eyes): Yes, the metal thing, the bar clamp. Two jaws that screw together. (Holds up hands to demonstrate.)
Me: I know I’ve seen it somewhere…
Son: I used it last winter. There are a hundred places where it could be in the garage.
Me: Have you checked the laundry room? On top of the dryer?
Clomp, clomp, clomp down the stairs.
Son: It’s here.
