Hide & Seek
Its been a looooong time since I'v played hide & seek. Guess I'm big enough to find it hard to locate a place to hide in, and kids now-a-days don't play such games anymore #-o. But there are still those around me who love to play hide and seek :).
The worse part of the game is when you opponent has a cloaking device :(. It gets really hard to find chameleons X-(. I literally had to turn the place upside down in hopes of finding the quarry. And of course the advantage of being really small and able to squeeze into tight places.
I was so hoping that in all the turning around of the place, I would hear some footsteps but in vain . He was too gud. Finally it was time to bring in my tracking instincts *sniff sniff* based on the last location where I spotted him :D.
After making a rummage of the place, realized there was this one spot which was unscathed. Even then my eyes couldn't quite locate him. It was like searching a needle in a haystack #-o.
Left with no other choice I had to strip off the covers :), and looo there he was. His cloaking (near transparent) was no good against the clear backdrop of varnished teak wood of the bed *phew*. Finally I found my memory stick's cap \:D/ ... yippieeeeeeeeee. Gooood I spent a whole half hour hunting for him just before leaving for office #-o.
All this apart there is this blind belief that if you left an object somewhere with your left hand, you are very likely to forget it than when you place it with your right hand. Dyu believe in such?
