Mystery spouse: Honey, do you know where the grass seed is?
Spousette: Er, I don't know, did you look in the car?
Mystery spouse: I'm too muddy to get my car keys, can you hand them to me?
(Ten minutes pass)
Mystery spouse (standing inside, in socks): I still can't find it!
Spousette: I take it you've looked on the bench for the garden supplies and everything? Do we still have any bags from the shopping we did that weekend anywhere? I know the bag from that shop is empty, because it's in the bedroom.
Mystery spouse: Wow, I spent an hour prepping the yard, where could it be?
Spousette: Well, I'm not sure, but lunch is ready, shall we eat?
(Half an hour passes. Spousette gets ready to go down into the basement - where the gardening tools are - to turn off the dryer. She notes a bag from the hardware store hanging on the back of the knob of the door to the basement, which Mystery Spouse has probably touched about five times in the last hour as he tramped in and out of the house.)
Spousette: Um, darling? About the grass seed?
