I'm on a week off (yay!) and taking the opportunity to update my music lists. The In House GP (also off this week) is using his Mac so I couldn't start stealing music off his playlist; he brought down the CD drive and suggested I rip a couple of new CDs in the meantime. Except that we couldn't find the whatnot that connects the CD drive to my laptop. It should have been in the drawer upstairs, but IHGP looked and couldn't find it, then I looked and couldn't find it. I checked the Welsh dresser drawers, the kitchen miscellaneous drawer, even the odds and sods drawer in the display cabinet, but no sign of it.
"Might as well put the drive away," said the IHGP. I'd put it back in the box when I suddenly wondered whether the whatnot had slipped down the back of the drawer it was supposed to be in, so I pulled it out and rummaged around behind it as best as I could without success. Then I started re-fitting the drawer onto its runners, and when I glanced down, there's the whatnot lying there innocently. I'm sure it was there all along, but odd that it took 3 trips to the drawer to actually see it.
