Losing track of time

September 11, 2008

I don’t why this strikes me as being so funny, but it does:

ELKHART — This city is ready to open a time capsule from 1958, but no one seems to know exactly where it is. Some think it’s in a downtown park, some say it’s under a sidewalk, and others doubt it even exists, The Truth of Elkhart reported.

Maybe it’s because that’s something most of us have done at least once in our lives — hidden something so well that we can’t remember where we put it. Sometimes, we’re not even trying to hide it — we just lose track. I uncovered the clutter on a living room table a fews ago, and there was a gift certificate I had gotten for last Christmas, with only a couple of weeks left until the expiration date. I can imagine those poor Elkhartians digging up the whole town and still not finding the time capsule. Hint: It’s always in the last place you look, so look there first.
