My Daytimer wallet, which was on the nightstand next to the bed,
disappeared - coincidentally right after the cleaning woman came and went.
While I didn't suspect her (known her for over 40 years!) I just couldn't
figure out what happened to it. Then I remembered I had run the Roomba to
pickup all the dog hair that accretes under the bed.
Turns out the Roomba apparently had kept knocking on the nightstand and
finally knocked the wallet off. Then it must have pushed it to the far
corner under the bed. It would probably still be there if I hadn't caught
site of the reflection of pen in the flashlight beam.
Now it is, but just before I decided to look one last time under the bed
with the big flashlight I was about to retrieve the dog-poop paper topped
off trash bag for a thorough search. Looking again was my way of putting
off that terrible task and it just happened to pay off. Phew!
Now I'll keep a better eye on that damn robot. The worst it's ever done
before was knock over and shatter a fluorescent tube I had left leaning
against the wall after putting in a new one. It's also dragged some shoes
around and choked on some carpet runners, but it's been a pretty useful
device, even with the "hide and seek" game it just ran on me.
