The Eye

It's watching us.

When the grandchildren are here, I put toys in the top drawer of a dresser that they use and they have fun finding odds and ends of small things. This time, I put an eye in a teacup in the drawer, but after a couple of days had passed and they hadn't looked in the drawer, I told them to go look.

The eye is icky. It's sort of sticky and it squishes. So of course, one of the grandchildren (I'm not saying who; I'm protecting the identity of the guilty.) threw it against a wall and it stuck. That prompted said child to toss the eye to the ceiling---two stories above the family room. And there it remains, keeping watch over us. We could reach it using a yardstick while standing in the hallway on the second floor.

But I'm kind of curious to see how long it will stay there.

I'm hopeful that's the only lingering sign of our invasion. And the girls think it's beyond awesome that the eyeball is still there.

In my experience it will stay pretty much forever and it will leave a stain when you knock it down. Hope your experience is better!
