Microstories: The Universal Remote

I dumped out
the toybox,
pulled kitchen drawers,
felt up the laundry,
trying to remember. 
I searched
underneath
the sleeping husband,
between 
the sticky cushions
of the couch,
the top of a
cluttered credenza. 
At last!
It was
in the freakin' fridge.

  2. Nothing worse than reaching in between the cushions. Or is that just at our house?

  5. I feel like the fridge should be the go-to place to look for things that shouldn't ever be in the fridge.
