Joe's Cafe, 24/7 pit stop for ESL learners and teachers | May 2008
Egg's off, bacon's off, bread's off, tea's off. English is on though.
Why is it always the last place you look…
Why is it always the last place you look that you find the thing you’re looking for? Does that happen to you too? You know, you lose something–like your keys or your nail-clippers. You look for them everywhere. You look in the bath room. You look in your pockets. You look under your bed. You look in the living-room. You open all your drawers, and cupboards, and wardrobes. You go outside and check in the car. Under the seats. In the boot. In the glove compartment. You look in the kitchen, under the sink, inside the fridge, behind the microwave. You retrace your steps out in the street. You look in the garden. You empty the dustbin. You go back inside and look down the side of the sofa. And there they are! You’ve found them! In the last place you looked. But why is it always the last place? Why can’t it be the first place, at least now and then? Don’t bother answering. I’m sure there really isn’t any answer.
